Can't download podcasts!!!!!

I have a iphone 3g on 4.2.1. For some reason yesterday when I click on ANY podcast title it no longer lists the available episodes for me to download. All it shows is the "user reviews" and "more from user" there is no longer a list of episodes. this has never happened and it is EVERY podcast in itunes on my phone.

thank you

Need more information... are you trying to download directly on iPhone using iTunes app or are you using iTunes software on your computer and then trying to download?

First off, don't create too many posts unless you want to get kicked out. Mods here don't have a life :P

Have you tried to restart iPhone? Sometimes the app itself gets a bug so restarting fixes it. Try that and post results.
Is it only this podcast or others as well? Maybe this one is down for some reason.

Post results and I'll try to help.

Ah okay. I did not have my phone near me to check myself. I would say restoring iPhone as new. I cannot think of anything else.

Yes, I'm having the same exact problem.... started yesterday. Nothing has changed! VERY frustrating.

At least now I know its not only me. Iphone 3g also firmware 4.2.1

Maybe we have to upgrade to latest firmware.
EDIT... scratch that... 4.2.1 IS the latest firmware.

Must be something Apple did that's affecting this hardware on this firmware.

Same-Same

I have the exact same problem. Tried hard restart. I also have an iphone 4 but kept my 3g specifically as a music and podcast player. Just started a couple days ago.
