My iPhone 32G s has a number 1 displayed on the App store icon. I have tried tapping the icon but seems to stay in Loading mode forever. What does the 1 mean on the Icon and how do i get rid of it.

It means you have an update for 'one' of your downloaded applications.

If you power down your phone and turn it back on again, tap your app store icon and you get 5 different icons at the bottom of the screen. Tap the furthest icon on the righ handside 'updates'

You'll have to enter your iTunes PW then your phone will download the update then in theory your annoying little number 1 should vanish... until another update for any of your apps.

Have you tried turning your phone on and off. Something as simple as switiching it off can clear little problems.

If you have done then i do suggest a horrible restore. I've had long loading applications as such but what your describing to me sounds a little weird.

Try a hard reset as well. Hold down your home button and power button until yout phone reboots.

No need to restore. Sometimes the app store servers are busy and that happens. Give it time and you'll be able to update no problem. Or you can do as akaremo44 said and it will be gone.
