Then I turned off wifi and with 3G the apps downloaded in a flash. Does anyone know why?Mac Pro Quad Core, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Quad Xeon, 6TB, 16GB, 3 tiled displays

Are you a fruit fly that only lives 24 hours?
Without having access to your network it is hard to say if it is the iPhone or your network.
Have you tried a different wifi network?20" iMac Core 2 Duo 2.66Ghz;4GB RAM;Nvidia 9400, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 4G iPhone-Mac Mini Core2 Duo 2Ghz; 2GB RAM Eyetv w/USB HYbrid
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2010 9:56 PM (in response to AD949)As it happens, I was having an issue with wi-fi recently and was worried it was my phone.
Two things I did GREATLY increased the speed. First was that I made a small change (just the name) on my guest account. Apparently the restart process it does after any change got things working much better. Later I turned off the guest account completely. I use a Time Capsule and read that people were having trouble with iphone 4 and Time Capsule and that a lot solved it by turning off the guest network.
That's all I did. Very fast now.
But as basic steps for fixing things, it is always good to try turning off everything (phone, computer, router, modem) and restarting. As it happens, I tried that without success. Apparently the "restart" the router/time capsule did when I made the change does something else that simply powering down and restarting does not do.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.2), http://picturehawaii.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html

That is an interesting network aberration.Mac Pro Quad Core, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Quad Xeon, 6TB, 16GB, 3 tiled displays
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2010 11:30 PM (in response to Wayne of America)That's great. I decided I really never used the guest network anyway. I only set it up in case someone visited and that way they could use a password that wasn't one I used. But it's never been needed so no loss.
If you do have a use for a guest network, you might try turning it on again. Remember that I got a lot of improvement even when I only changed the name - the restart process must have fixed something. So maybe now that you've done that, even with the guest network it might work.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.2), http://picturehawaii.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html
