I have not been able to connect to iTunes, not Mac App Store for an hour. Anyone else having a problem?

Not sure if this is what you are experiencing but ...

I can access iTunes, listen to sample music and view movie trailers, but I'm unable to purchase anything from the iTunes store or access my account. I tried on my Mac, iPad and iPhone (both home network and 3g). On my Mac I just get "Accessing iTunes Store…" and eventually an error message saying the network connection was dropped.

Also the initial loading of the iTunes Store page takes very long to load - a minute or so.

I've rebooted and reload iTunes (10.5.3) - but the problem remains.

Yeah--I've tried on my Mac to access iTunes store--no go. Tried to view movies from the cloud on ATV--no go. Tried to update apps on my phone--no go--even tried wif-fi and 3G--no go. Most likely a problem on the Apple end.

Every combination imaginable tried

I have an MBA, Win7 desktop, iPad1, iPad2, IOS 5.01, IOS 4.3, cable internet, WiFi, tether to Iphone.

Tried every single combination and I get the same problem. Try to either purchase and app or update an app and it just hangs and then get the error.

I tried to download a new educate epub from iBooks2 and no problem.

Load iTunes fine, recognizes me, but if I try to view my account info, then no go.

Seems like and Apple issue verifying the password. Don't know but it is very annoying.

I can't download any apps or update on my iPad 2 or 4S. Not jail broken. Been this way for hours. Multiple power cycles hasn't helped

Same Problem

I have an iPhone 3gs with latest iOS5 update and I am having the same problem. I can connect to the internet through 3g and wifi but I can't download or update any apps. When I try the app just stays stuck in "waiting" until I get a "cannot connect to iTunes" and it disappears. Tried reseting iPhone and still nothing...

Me too - I just tried updating an app on my phone and it's been stuck on waiting. Weird.
