    I accidentally hit the buy tab on an app and it start to download...I paused it for now, but I don't know how to cancel it! It has downloaded about 15mb of it's 60 or so mb.
    Can I cancel it?

    I see I can delete it, but I want to make sure I am not charged for it.

    It couldn't harm you to do a re-download, and see if the AppStore is telling you, that you already own this app!? (Just remember to do the "pause-delete" thing again! ;)

    It's a $5 app... It was a mistake, crap! I'm going to wait and see if iTunes sends me the receipt email confirmation! I hope not!

    yes I've done that but I got charged. once you it buy and you just put the password for another app you bought it. That's one think I can't stand about the app store. Mine was $10 but I ended up using the app and liked it

    If Purchase History shows you were charged, highlight the specific item and go to Report a Problem and describe your mistake and request a refund. Your chances are good.

    In iTunes go to purchase history and then report a problem. You should be able to get a refund. I have before...

    Crap!@.@,";&;!,&,

    I just got the receipt from iTunes for that $5 app.

    What pisses me off is that when I accidentally pressed buy, it didn't ask me for my password, it just started to download! I paused it when I realized it was downloading, so now I got to try and get my money back!

    AppStore don't ask for your password twice - ones you have downloaded another app. If you going to restart or lock your iPhone - then you have to insert your password again!

    Trust me they will refund you. As a matter of fact I'm so sure they will refund you that I WILL GIVE YOU THE FIVE BUCKS if they don't. That's how sure I am. Just report a problem and go from there.
