    Switch the phone to wifi or download the app to iTunes 1st and then sync the iPhone to it.

    It's a carrier limitation.

    Sadly it's a limitation of ONE SINGLE carrier which gets enforced upon ALL iPhone customers world wide, regardless of carrier. Why do T-Mobile customers in Germany or Austria have to "suffer" just because AT&T said something.

    Regardless, @TS: Find a WiFi hotspot - no limits there

    Limiting downloads and streaming data with slingbox makes a lot of sense. Bandwidth is limited and poor enough as it is. Why the hell should we give you more than your share?? If you aren't happy with the rules then move on...:mad:

    I don't think international carriers have to do the limit, and I don't even know if they do. That's just an AT&T thing as far as I know.

    If you don't like it, BlackBerry is waiting for you.

    I agree, it's not that big of a deal IMO. People can always download an app to there computer or go on Wifi. We don't need everyone hogging the bandwidth over the 3G and making it harder for others. Sadly that's why companies have caps like this because if they didn't people would take an advantage of it and make it harder for others.

    SoftBank does it here in Japan, and I agree with the OP - it's annoying as ****!

    Yes, but AT&T told Apple they want this limit and Apple puts it in the firmware. Now it's a limit for every single iPhone user - regardless of carrier.

    Just another indicator of how crappy of a network ATT is.

    Only works with Skype... thus the name.

    You can stream media which might take 50MB over a few hours, but you can download apps at over 500MB in a few hours...

    Can't help with apps, but if you want to download podcasts over 10MB on 3G or Edge you can use RSS Player without jailbreaking.
