    I just bought an iPhone 4 at the at&t store last night and have been playing with it since. Unfortunately buying apps (new or updated) from the phone does not appear to be working. When I select a new or updated app and enter my password (which I know is correct, it is not complaining about that) it starts to download the first app and stays on "Loading..." forever. I can connect it to iTunes, delete the app, and then reinstall the app from iTunes and it works fine. Are others seeing this issue? I am running iOS 4.1 (it came that way).

    On another note I cannot find the iPhone 4 Case Program by searching the App Store on the phone, but I do fine it in iTunes. I guess I will have to wait until tonight and download it at home. The reception (at least in number of bars) is nowhere nearly as good as the LG VU that I replaced. I constantly got 5 bars with the LG at home, but the iPhone varies from 1-4 bars (I have never seen 5 I don't think).

    I have that first problem too. It's really annoying. I just restart my phone and it solves the problem. (iP4 4.1)

    I have the same problem, very irritating..
    Must be a bug in 4.1 - 4.01 and 4.02 didn't behave this way..

    I just tried it again at work and got the same odd behavior (hang on "Loading"). I turned the phone off and back on (full off, not sleep) and the app I was trying to load showed to be installed and ran fine. Weird.
