Unable to purchase

Since I'm a pretty big deal I now have an iPod touch - iPhone (only 3GS cause I am retro cool like that) and an iPad

But my iPhone is playing tricks on me. Won't download or update apps for the past few days. Looks just like it is going to but then says 'unable to purchase' and the app I am buying disappears.

If I don't have Netflix on my iPhone by morning I think I'll cry.

when you use netflix, do you actually download? or do you have to stream…

i.e. can i make my flight to edmonton tomorrow morning a bit more tolerable?

They found out who you really are and locked your account. :P

Steps to try:
logging out and then logging into your account (iTunes or App Store) from your iPhone and then do the update.
downloading using your PC and then syncing the phone.
verify your credit card again.

Jailbreak for iOS 4.1 on any 3Gs released last night. Easy to do via Windows app. No problems so far.

Phone Apple support. Your account might have a glitch.

I had that on my iPad, but after restarting it, everything worked again. Show some persistence!

Pfft. Realtors. They have zero persistence for everything. Just ask his wife.

Apple blocked you because of your contious app downloads. They want you to save the money for upcoming funky off the hook gadgets.

3G is slow whether jailbroken or not.
