    I will go with my standard "have you tried a hard reset?"
    What happens when you try to purchase a new app?

    What's a hard reset? Is that where u hold the home button and lock button? And I've deleted and app and I'm trying to download it again but it's not working.

    Hold the home and power button at the same time. Ignore the slide to power off. Wait till you see the Apple boot logo and release both buttons. Wait about a minute and when your phone returns to normal try downloading the app again.

    I've always let go when the screen goes black but I need to keep holding till the Apple comes back up?

    I've tried the reset and tired downloading again but when the app comes up it says waiting and the little loading wheel that's comes up by the 3G doesn't come up and the app stays dark and says waiting up under it. Got anymore ideas?

    How big of an app is it and what's your connection speed to the Internet? 3G or wifi connection?

    it was happening to me last night. Plug your phone into iTunes and Back it up. Then restore from that same back up, it'll fix it
