    Until Apple fixes this, I have been synching my original iPhone to iTunes and copying apps purchased with my other iDevices to my original iPhone.

    Yes, but that is not feasible for long time.

     

    Apple is promoting the "break" with the computer on higher iOS versions,... and now we have to be slave of the USB connection

    Don't know what you mean "not feasible for a long time" I'm doing it now.

     

    While I'm not happy about this problem, and will be very unhappy if Apple does not fix it, the original iPhone has always been a slave to the USB cable. All I'm concerned about is that the phone retains the same functionality it had when I purchased it. Apple has already rescinded synchronization services i had with MobileMe, but if they completely restrict the way I get apps into my phone, that's another matter.

     

    I think we all forget that the original iPhone could only run web-apps. That may be the future for the original iPhone, even if the app store functionality is restored, as many apps I have tried to download recently require a minimum of iOS 4. As developers stop supporting iOS 3 with their updates, the original iPhone and 3G will slowly lose their functionality.

    iOS 3.1.3 (7E18)

    iPhone 3gs

    mac device for OS sync - unavailable

     

    -genius stopped working

    -genius started working

    -info page back button disappeared for a long time

    -back button fixed

    -genius stopped working the info back button started working again

     

     

    - buy button changes color and shape

    - info page full graphic splash sizing wrong

    - no horizontal scroll of splash

    - can update apps

    - can't buy apps...

     

    - AppStore GUI code mistakes? 

     

    -  or does the production manager @AppStore GUI even try

    the updates on a 2 yr old device- before releases?

    As it stands, is iOS 3.1.3 no longer compatible with the Appstore

    or is it that Apple does not support this iOS or what?

    Regardless of my update woes...if you don't, can't, or won't

    support it ...just say so.. publicly. Excuse my tone- gets tiring

    telling someone how to pack a bag of groceries- over and over...

    i have the same problem., i have ipodtouch 1g., the download button change its shapes and collor and won't allow me to download., but i think i fix it.,

     

    go to your settings -> general -> reset -> reset all settings

     

    WARNING: it will erased all your data, apps etc. i mean ALL that your gadgets have will be deleted

     

    then wait for it and when its open try to go to apps store and go to featured try to click (touch) it and the button will no longer change., but i try to do it in other apps but still dont work., but i noticed that all the featured apps are good., so i don't know -_- (sorry bout my english xD) im so f**** up right know

    I think that it is time to communicate it to the Digital Media, Forums and specialized webs.

    I am sorry but you did not really fix the problem because it is actually working good in the "featured" apps without any trick such you tried.

     

    But still no improvement in the other parts (Top 25, Search...) and that situation really *****.

    I have an iPhone 2G on iOS 3.1.3 and I only can download the "featured apps" because download buttons DO NOT work and I have restored and nothing happened. What can I do?

    Thanks

    Yes, I confirm it also .

     

    The Appstore works again on my iPhone 3G with iOS3.1.3 after close to 3 weeks waiting , but anyway, it seems that Apple didn't forget us, yet .

     

    Enjoy folks!
