Here is my problem, I cannot install updates to the phone unless I delete the app on the phone. This is true from iTunes on my mac or over the air direct to the phone WTF is going on?

Are you jailbroken?

Have you tried deleting your backup from iTunes, then allowing your phone to fully sync with backup again?

Also, you are on 2.1, right? If not, I would highly recommend it.

If so, the backup thing is probably your only option other than a restore. That would be my next step if this doesn't work.

Yes I am 2.1, deleting the backups didn't work there are 2 that didn't update bankarama and wikipedian.

Restore? from the backups I deleted? or will that start with nothin as when the phone was new?

Settings, general, about.

I would restore as new as long as you have all your contacts and calendar synced and photos transferred. You will also lose notes and SMS, so email the notes to yourself and just learn to live with losing SMS. I have.

restore from a previous backup solved the problem for me
