    Hi all

    I purchased Cro-Mag Rally on my iPhone 3G while at home connected to my wi-fi thinking it would download successfully. Instead I got the following message:

    "Unable to download application. Cro-Mag rally will be available for download when you log in to the iTunes Store on your computer."

    I re-synced my iPhone, logged in to iTunes store and I can't find Cro-Mag anywhere ready to sync. I go to the Cro-Mag page in the store and select buy but it just appears to want me to purchase again.

    I have checked my purchase history in iTunes account details, and it shows Cro-Mag as being purchased.

    I've searched the forum but can't find anything. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorted. Found STORE - CHECK FOR PURCHASES option in iTunes.

    That'll teach me to look a bit harder before posting!

    Still Unable to Download application updates

    I already clicked on Check for Purchases under the Store Menu. It tells me All Purchases Have Been Downloaded. OK. Sync. My iphone still shows that I have 5 updates available. When I click Update on the iphone it tells me 1) Unable to download application and that it will be available for download when I log into the iTunes Store and 2)that I've already purchased this item but it hasn't been downloaded. To get it, open itunes on your computer, select Check for Purchases and then sync.

    I logged into iTunes under my husband's account to see if that would work. It hasn't. How do I get my application updates?

    I'm on a PowerMac G4.

    ETA: All updates have been downloaded on the computer/itunes is another message I get on the phone. Can't remember exactly what the wording is. But I have no updates that are needed when I check itunes. After I sync, iTunes says that some applications were not installed on my phone due to error 0xE8000025 and it has a list of what applications weren't downloaded.

    I'm confused too b/c these were applications that were already on myphone. Thanks.

    You're supposed to delete them

    I think. OK, so I the "updates" widget wouldn't go away, so I decided to delete all the widgets that had updates available. Then synced. Voila! I guess you have to delete the old version to get the update.
