I'm new to the iPhone... I downloaded several apps yesterday and they all worked beautifully. Then today we went out to Mom and Dad's house and none of those apps worked! When I got home, they all worked again. Specifically, I tap an app to open it and it opens for a flash and then closes again.

What am I doing wrong? Does it have something to do with that Airport setting (unsure of what that is).

3gs, iPhone OS 3.0

    Airport setting? Do you mean you have it in the Airplane mode? If so, why?

    I don't have it in Airplane mode but I thought that might help... now I just read through the manual and realize Airplane mode is not related to this at all! Still unsure why my apps wouldn't open away from home though?

    I did deauthorize my iTunes and reauthorized it... not sure if that worked until I get away from home again.

    Any other ideas?

    Which apps specifically are not working? Generally whether they work or not should not depend on your location. Some do require access to the data network -- things like Maps -- which can be via wi-fi or EDGE or 3G; so if you have no access (as in the Airplane mode) there can be problems.

    Things like Calculator, Camera, Photos, Note and Calendar should work no matter where you are. Do they?

    I just encounter the same problem today. All downloaded applications will just flash out and the close by itself.

    Need help here.

    I have just managed to get the application re-open again. What I have done was to go to app store and install another free application. After the installation, it works again. Hope it helps.

    I am having the same issue - doesn't matter where I am. It is VERY frustrating, as I was using the Kindle App to read. Now can't open my book that I purchased. Please don't tell me this is what I get for getting into buggy Apple products - I'm a newbie. Where can we get help??
