    I tried downloading two apps, and wanted to upgrade to the 2.0.2 software before the apps were finished downloading since I was getting annoyed by how long it was taking. I updated the firmware, synced the phone, and both apps (Flip Book Lite and the free Unit Converter) are stuck on "loading" and have been for an hour and a half, with no progress whatsoever. I am using wifi, so you think they would download faster. I even tried removing them from the "Applications" section in iTunes and then resyncing my phone. Did no good, and I can't even remove them from the home screen by tapping and holding n pressing the x... there isnt one! What do I do, these things won't download and I want them to go away.

    Have you tried going to the App Store and downloading the apps again? I got a message confirming that I had already downloaded the app and I just tapped OK to continue. That worked for me when an app seemed to freeze during installation.

    Also, try doing a hard restart of the phone, should help in clearing anything stuck out of there.
