    I've tried to access Ping from my iPhone and it says I have no internet connection (when I do). Anyone else getting this?

    No one else?

    Ping is in the iTunes app.

    Works fine for me.

    Saying that, I am running 4.1.

    i am seeing the same thing. Ping is now in my itunes app, however whenever I click on it I get the 'Cannot connect to iTunes Store" message. I've done a soft reset, will try a hard one next, but seems like it's been spotty for some other folks so maybe a bug.

    It showed up fine in my iTunes app (I'm on JB 4.0.1). But I've heard that others had to close it out of backgrounding first. Give that a shot.

    EDIT: Also, it showed up in my iTunes app BEFORE I set it up on my iMac.

    no you don't, and yes it is working fine for me too. It took about 5 min after my setup was done on iTunes, but after that working flawlessly

    Not working for me, either. I thought it might take a bit to filter through the system after I setup Ping last night, but still no dice this morning. I tried quitting iTunes in the multitask bar, but that didn't work. Going to try rebooting the phone to see if that does anything.

    Edit: rebooting didn't help.

    soft reset, hard reset, closed out of backgrounding..still no dice.

    any way for me to sign out/deauthorize itunes then reauthorize (without having to do a restore of course, not worth that trouble)

    I set Ping up on iTunes, and I have the Ping button on my iPhone, but when I click it I just get this [​IMG]

    I don't understand how to get it to work. I have my iPhone connected to iTunes and I click ping on itunes, and I even synced my phone to my computer, but I get nothing.

    Also, I have no idea how to create a post on Ping from my computer.

    Ha ha ha!

    So I clicked a link in Twitter to follow someone on Ping. That opened the iTunes app, which showed me the user's page, let me follow them, check their info, etc. When I clicked the back to Ping button, it gave me the "unable to connect to iTunes Store" error message.

    Hard reset didn't fix the problem for me.

    I'm running the last released version of iOS. Not sure what is going on.

    Same here. Keep getting the "cannot connect to iTunes" when I tap the Ping icon.
