    Default Downloading Apps Not Possible
    Just got my Verizon iPhone and jb it right away. Last night it was fine to download apps from the app store whether on wifi or 3G.

    Today, I deleted two retina wallpaper apps that were free and tried to download another. It would load halfway then tell me it could not be downloaded and that I must log into iTunes on my computer to download the apps. Tried doing it with free games to test it out and it said the same.

    Got home, plugged into iTunes and logged into my account. It started downloading the apps through my computer on iTunes.

    Ok...tried to do it again on my phone from app store and couldn't, same error.

    Tried creating a new account, logged into that on my phone and same error, so I figured it's my phone.

    It keeps forcing me to download via my computer on iTunes to sync to my phone, but I wanna be able to download through my app store bc I'm not always around my computer.

    What gives?

    Never had this problem before. I jb 5 iPhone 4's last night on the same computer and it was all fine except for MINE, gah!!!

    I'll restore and rejb of course, but I'm trying to avoid that. Anybody know how to fix this?

    If your AppStore app is not on the springboard, place it there. Remove it from any folder/dock or any sbsettings dock that it may be tied up in and place it on the main page. If that isn't your problem let me know but chances are, if you've placed it in a folder that is messing it up. Reboot after you've done that

    My app store wasn't tampered with

    Thanks for the response tho, figured it out.

    One download of an app wasn't complete and somehow got messed up. It was keeping me from downloading new apps. Even through iTunes.

    A restore was necessary to set it back to normal.

    Hey, Annie you find a command animate in a zombie state on yours? I have no clue what this is, but I thought it might help in figuring out a way to fix this without having to restore, or maybe some way to prevent it from happening again.
