This is a very simple fix. If you are at an airport, or a hotel and cannot get into the app store,
go to your settings
go to wifi, choose a network
click the blue arrow beside the network you are connected too
go Down to DNS. delete all of the numbers in there and enter 188.8.131.52
go to search domain and change it to google.com
This will fix your issues.

Thank you "GamblingJames" for your info/help. This fixed the issue/error message "cannot connect to iTunes store" I kept getting when attempting to open the App Store app on my iPhone 4, running iOS 6.
Your help is much appreciated!
Thank you Paulo! I have changed the time about 10 times, reset my password, logged in and out again - basically tried every single suggestion that people had BUT I had a new bank card (so the expiry date/CVC code were out of date) so I've updated it and it all works
I am very happy after weeks of frustration - I got a new card ages ago but it's never prompted me to update my details. Your solution works perfectly
What I did and it worked was to do the following steps:
1. Go to SETTINGS
2. Click iTUNES & APP STORE
3. Click your APPLE ID
4. Click SIGN OUT
5. Go to SETTINGS
6. Click GENERAL
7. Click RESET
8. Click RESET ALL SETTINGS
9. Go to SETTINGS
10. Click iTUNES & APP STORE
11. Click your APPLE ID
12. Click SIGN IN
This is what I did and it worked for me. Goodluck
When you reset your settings none of your personal stuffs like contacts, photos or even songs nothing will get lost it only changes your phone to factory settings. But befor doing restore pls try like this.
1. Connect your iphone,ipad or ipod with itunes through you pc.
2. Click Store --- View my account- log in
3. Update your bank details and all other personal details properly specially your bank card details should be match with your home adress. Dont worry untill purchasing anything you wont get charge its just registering your card details.
4.Scroll down and on Settings you can see "Reset all warnings for buying and download." Please press RESET.
And wait for this process to get done after that sync your iphone, ipad or ipod again through itunes and disconnect it from the pc.
