You can't, there is a 50 meg download limit over 3G, the limit can only be increased by Apple with the agreement of the carriers. You will either need to connect to a wifi network on your iPad, or download them on your computer's iTunes and then sync them to the iPad

It is too bad there is no work around or way for users to adjust this depending on things like availability of wifi and your data plan. We have functionally switched to mobile and have a large data plan on our ipad and no home Internet plan which means we have to find places with wifi just to do downloads that we could do using our 3G data plan. Very frustrating. Arggggg

Any other ideas for work arounds or thoughts that apple may change this?

It it Apple that's doing this? I would guess it's the cellular carriers who are asking Apple to do this to cut down on cell network traffic. I would send feedback to your cellular carrier but you can always send Apple some iPhone feedback: http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

Just figured out this workaround: If you can't download a movie in iTunes bcz you are only on 3G with your iPad, and you also have an iphone with 3G connection, you can simpy set up a local wifi-network from the iPhone and share it's Internet connection over wifi with the iPad. That way, iTunes on iPad is "fooled" intro believing you are not downloading over 3G... just watched a rental that way over 3G. Stupid restriction, nevertheless. Really makes you prefer Netflix...

Stupid restriction. .......Until you start moaning about having used all of your cellular data to download the movie or the app. Maybe not so stupid then.

A warning or something would do the job of preventing that. It´s not Apple´s job to discipline mobile users. Some cellular plans (like mine) allows for unlimited amounts of download data. Having invested in such a plan, it s really annoying not to be able to do profit from it by watching movies in iTunes.
