    Same issue. Updated to IOS 5.1 phone & apps kept crashing.  Now I can't update any apps or download any new ones.  I've tried all the recommendations in this post... Can anyone HELP!

    the iexplore method mentioned on page 3 of this post worked for me - thanks for posting. Attempted 3 downloads and all worked.

    I tried all of the suggestions with no joy.  I just erased the phone and started over... it worked but it was a pain.

     

    All is well now.

     

     

    YMMV

    If you have anything downloading or preparing to download in iTunes make sure you delete it.  This worked for me.  ;)

    This Ipad is my first Apple product. I've had it for 4 months and now it has (what i would consider) a major issue.

    Looks like I'm not alone with this issue. I feel like I'm eerily in a Windows environment. Except I paid more.

    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?

    iPhone 3GS

    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 solved the problem by deleting all the "stucked" apps and reinstalling them....

    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!

    Oddly enough, my "waiting" apps started to download as soon as I connected to wifi and plugged in the phone to a wall outlet. May have something to do with the fact that my phone is set to backup via iCloud.
