I tried all (reboot, delete app and try to upload again, signing out of iTunes, syncing on laptop) suggestions I could find on this board and nothing worked...UNTIL I tried turning off Bluetooth and hitting update or install and everything dowloaded instantly over WiFi.
Please let me know if anyone else has success with this, okay?
Had 48 app updates to catch up on
Got to 24 downloaded successfully but then would not continue with any further updates
Would ask for user name and password but then got "Cannot update at this time" message ... for 3 days
My apps are contained in app 'icon boxes/folders'
Tried reboot [top button] [slide to poweroff]
Hard reboot [top button] [Screen button] wait till apple sign
Updated Phone to iOS 5.1.1
All to no effect
Rang apple support 0800 0480 408 ... from land line not the faulty iPhone ... took a good while for them to answer but chap was helpfull.
Asked for phone imie? number which I got by typing *#06#
The guy then asked for my details and said the phone was not registered to me ...?
Turns out that if you have had a replacement phone at any point then the imie? detail may not match you
Then used [Setting] [General] [About] Serial Number AAnnnnAnnAA which confirmed me as owner
This was solution worked for me
1 Press [screen button] and hold untill icons wobble and they have [x] in top right corner
2 Delete icon by touching [x] in top right corner
3 [App Store] [Update All]
You should find that the icon re-appears outside of 'icon boxes/folders' - at last free screen and starts to update correctly (blue line starts to increment at botton of icon)
You will then have to move it back into 'icon boxes/folders'
Bit of a pain especially since I had 24 outstanding.
Would suggest you deleted and update one 'icon boxes/folders' one at a time to make it easier to move them back into the original 'icon boxes/folders'
This must be a BUG right ... ?!
Hope it helps ...
This solved my problem. I was on the road and the updating of iMovie stalled and then got stuck with Unuable to Download. Downloaded iExplorer, removed the items in teh downloade directory, reset devive and voila... was able to update the app successfully. This is better than deleting the app entirely and losing existing data.
The solution to this is very simple. Just plug in your iphone to ur computer; open itune. and wait for the previous task to complete. Then you all set.

I bought my iphone yesterday.. downloaded a few apps, updated my iphone to the 5.1 and then it all went downhill.
I could not download new applications or do updates- they were all stuck on 'waiting'
----THE FIX ----
Settings - general - reset all settings (this will not delete any data on your phone)
After I did that I could download apps fine again!
