    Today i downloaded the upgrade for igun and for some reason it's still stuck on 0% Then I thought maybe it's the game so i downloaded a couple of others all on a grey box with nothing downloaded. My iphone is not jailbroken or modified it is not full I still probably have about 15gigs left (16g iphone 15 games got it last week) . I was watching a youtube vid that kept on freezing while the first 1 was dowloading does that do anything. When I look at these games in the app store it says installed when in reality they're all grey boxes with an empty download bar. If you're connected to a router can u exceed ur amount of gig in a month while using iphone is that the problem. Also with one of the when i dwnloded it said this item is no longer available
    all of that apps i have r free. Please help i'll be very greatful.

    those games sholuldn't exceed the 15GB limit already (thats just crazy and unpractical)
    you should try to turn your iphone, leave it off for 20 seconds and turn it back on.

    Is your Apple account signed into your iPhone? Go to Settings > Store.

    There, it should have: "Account: [WhateverYourAppleIDIs@whatever.com]

    If not, sign into it and restart your iPhone (Hold down the power button until a red slider appears, then slide it. When the screen goes completely black, hold the same button again until the screen comes on.) and re-download them.

    EDIT: If that doesn't work, do a Restore on your iPhone after backing it up. If THAT doesn't work, Restore it as a new phone. You'll lose all your data, but you may get it working again.

    There might be something wrong with your wifi, try rebooting your iPhone.
    If that doesn't work, you can also download games through iTunes on your computer and transfer them to your iPhone after.

    If you have an iPhone 4, then I TOTALLY KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.
    Same thing happens with my mom's iPhone 4. But strangely, not on my 3GS.
    One thing I noticed though is that when you have many things stuck, sometimes this might help:
    -Turn on airplane mode for like 5 minutes
    -Turn it off after that
    -Try getting a new app
    This SOMETIMES causes the stuck downloads to continue.
    Good luck [​IMG]
