    I just started having this problem and was curious to know if anyone else was experiencing the same. When I have apps with updates I go to download them and the download shows waiting but never completes. I have to do a hard reset each time to complete the download.

    Happened to me too just these last couple days. Everytime I downloaded an app, whether I'm updating a current app or downloading a new one, the icon would stay gray with the waiting message. And the only way it would resolve itself would be to restart the phone.

    But all I did to fix it was first back up my phone then do a restore with iTunes. That fixed it up.

    4.1 is a little buggy for me.

    Don't think it has anything to do with the latest update. My wife has a first gen iPod touch and the same thing happened to her last night.

    This has happened to me a couple of times and they only way I can resolve it is by restarting the phone. Hasn't happened recently though.

    Is this a manufacturing defect or something with the iOS? Same thing happens to and it's frustrating.

    This happened to me today with the update to the Remote app. The icon turned full white and said "waiting".

    I couldn't delete it or do anything except move it's position.

    Had to do a hard reset and automatically already updated, even though I never saw the update bar. But it's not bother.

    Only happens in a blue moon.

    That has happened to me ever since i upgraded to iOS 4.1. It is really annoying. Hard-reset is the only thing i have found to fix it, i hope it is resolved in iOS 4.2 or sooner.
