It seems that there is still no workaround for this...?

I have an app - Dark Nebula 2 - that I started the download on my iPhone 3GS on 3G network, so that I would not forget to download it in iTunes. I did not realize this would render it impossible to get the app...

I downloaded in iTunes and attempted to sync, but it said it could not sync that app.

Apple Support wants me to PAY them to solve this issue. F that! And F them!

Most current iOS. No x in the corner when held down.

Help me out here, guys. :(

Try loading the app. That should restart the download.

Is the download complete in iTunes on the computer? If so, reboot the phone and sync. If not, download it in iTunes on the computer and sync. If that doesn't work, try deleting it in iTunes on the computer and redownloading it.

Yes, it is complete in iTunes. I try soft reboot and hard reboot of the iPhone. No dice.

Seems like a restore may be next... I do NOT want to do that... I will lose a LOT of valuable stuff.

edit: What happened to the x on downloads that came with iOS 4.3 (or was it 4.1.3)?

Can you download it over WiFi on the phone then?

I once had an app that was stuck in my download queue and iTunes tech support removed it free of charge. I had Apple Care at the time, though.

Have you tried launching iTunes and clicking on Store then Check for available downloads...? This does sometimes rectify your particular type of problem.

I tried that as well, iPhonewarrior.

The ONLY thing that worked was downloading over WiFi on iPhone. However, our router sometimes decides to reset itself, so we do not always have WiFi, and I do not always have the time to set it up.

Where did this feature go? iOS 4.3 features: Cancel app download/install
