I just noticed that I am now able to download podcasts from iTunes on my iPhone 3G 3.0 beta that are larger than 10MB while on 3G connection. Is this an oversight or is AT&T going to let me take advantage of my data plan finally?

Doh

Very nice:) Can you try the App store as well please?:p

The app store is still crippled. I just tried to download ZenBound which I had previously purchased before restoring with 3.0. It gave me the standard 10MB wifi error.

anything special?

Did you have to do anything special to enable it? I am using 3.0 and everytime I try to d/l a podcast over 10MB, I still get the same old error message...

Thanks,
Tavin.

o_O the 10MB limit has been gone for a long time for me... both on iTunes and App Store. I downloaded TTR2 over EDGE... took forever, but I did it. Don't know what's up with your phones...

Tried to download a Toppe update last night but got the 10 MB warning, so I don't think it's lifted. I don't see why it would be lifted, since it's not a software issue it's a network issue (ATT doesn't want it to be clogged with downloads.)

Just found out why. TTR2 is only 9.8MB. JUST under... Can't find a free app under 10MB other than Ambiance... 50MB is just a little too much to attempt over EDGE...

So frustrating.

WE Flipping pay 30 for this service...

On my $15 dollar media net I am able to download unlimited podcasts over 3G. absurd.

One nice thing, the 10MB download for music has been upped to 12MB. I found this out a few nights ago. I still wish they would end these limits.

I've had 3G for two days and I'm already turning off WiFi at home. For $30/month (plus the $5 text plan I added because unfortunately I know I'll get a few), I'm getting my money's worth.

Apple needs to open it up to Verizon and T-Mobile if for nothing else to get some of the traffic away from AT&T's network.
