    For about a day now I've not been able to download Apps, update Apps, or download Podcasts.
    However, Safari works perfectly fine...

    I've turned it off, turned it on.
    Synced it, etc.

    I'm using my wireless, and like I said everything is working fine as far as the interwebs go.
    Is something up with Itunes or Apple or what?

    Everything just says "Waiting..." and it'll either say "Cannot connect" or in some cases just keep saying "Waiting..." for hours

    Because that fixes all problems. :icon_roll

    Try a hard reset first. If that doesn't work restore it in iTunes. Back up first if you can.

    So will the battery pull wipe out my phone?
    I did everything else, and still nothing.

    Won't work with 3G, or 4G whatever it is. So it's not a connection thing.
    Internet is perfect.

    Maybe a Genius will know...

    A new phone?
    The phone is only like a month old... I better not need a new one.

    It backs up everytime I thought. If everything wipes out it's not a huge deal.

    can you even pull a battery on an iphone? Sir Jobs frowned upon that kind of thing.

    I'd suggest taking into one of those Apple stores, where you can meet with a Genius, lol

    You cannot pull the battery on an iPhone. I suspect that was a little levity. Don had the best suggestion, back up to itunes, reset, restore.

    I think its becoming the trend, the non-removable battery that is.

    My new EVO 4G LTE has a sealed battery.

    I suspect that is to minimize bulk; if the phone is sealed, you don't have to devise a method of clipping a back onto it, thus saving a little space. That being said, I'll never buy a phone I can't pull the battery from, because it's how I recover from many many potential brick situations.

    When you back up your phone, it copies everything. So go ahead and do a hard restore (erase) then iTunes will ask you if you want to put your old data back on it.

    One thing though; it doesn't always restore your music correctly. (at least my ipod has a history of not doing so.) So if you have your music handy, it's no biggie to put it back, but don't count on it restoring automatically.

    If it's only a month old, take it to the Apple store. That's the main advantage of Apple products. They'll either fix it then and there or give you a new one.

    Oh, wait... Now it's working.
    I tried to restore from my phone, through settings, didn't work.

    Restored through Itunes and it worked.

    Ma phone works! But everything is gone...
