    Hello everyone,

    i was just downloading a new song for my library via 3g connection using the Itunes Store embedded on my iphone. The song is 11.5Mb as the store said.
    I knew there is a download limit of 10Mb using 3g connection.
    I just lost some news about or apple has removed this limit?

    Maybe in itunes or but not in the appstore. Or it could be your carrier that allows it. But in the US At&t and apple don't allow it.

    Oh thanks for the info. I guessed the 10mb limit was the same in all stores.

    Jailbreak and use 3G Unrestrictor and you can download any size file you want from either store.

    Yep, I love 3G Unrestrictor.

    I understand the logic behind the *concept* of cell data limits, but they are still dumb, dumb, dumb, and the implementation is especially dumb in the music store. I got so frustrated one time because I wanted to download one, single song off of the music store that was > 12MB, and it wouldn't let me.

    So, you can download a whole *album* that can amount to a total of tens or hundreds of megabytes simply because each track in the album might end up being less than 12MB on a track-by-track basis, but if you want to download a solitary song that happens to exceed 12MB, they tell you "sorry!"

    Where's the logic in that?

    I'm agree!

    There would be at least a national basis for limitations. My operator doesn't care about how many megabytes i can download per session and Apple (imho) will certain have a huge gain uncoupling a little bit more this device from Itunes for mac or pc.

    I agree, there shouldn't be a limit. Maybe just a warning for bigger files since they do take longer to download.
