I am not sure that this is an iphone issue and it might have something to do with the data plan you are on. Maybe the plan does not allow individual downloads greater than 50 Mb at a time

It has nothing to do with the data plan, my plan is unlimited I can put the sim into a diffrent phone and download any size of file. The 50mb limit is part of the os, is there any way to disable it.

There is no way to disable it. The 50 MB limit is included in the design at the request of carriers. BTW, it used to be 20 MB.

I don't buy that...and don't understand the cap... same carrier with Android device and same plan doesn't have a data transfer limit. One of the many reasons I'm looking forward to dumping this thing once my contract is up. Apple requires a lot more functionality before they will win my business back. Small examples...memory card, bluetooth file transfers (to non-IOS devices), no download cap, competive answer to 'swype' typing, and file management system to save and transfer files other than movies and pictures.

The cap is now 100MB and was requested by carriers.
Everything you want seems to be features that are on other phones such as HTC, Samsung, LG, etc. So why is it you bought an iPhone?

Some people are not happy unless they have something to complain about.
One of my favorite aporhisms:
1. Don't worry about the small stuff.
2. It's all small stuff
Obviously, 2 is a bit of hyperbole but, it still puts some perspective on things.
