I got my iphone 3GS replacement ( a brand new set) today for some defects in my old phone. Now I used the backup in my itunes to restore the new 3GS (after updating the ios 4.2.1). Everything went fantastic, all the sms-es, even the last calls made, contacts came back, but the trouble started when I tried to install a app/ringtone! It's not responding! It doesn't install any more apps other than what it had after the restore. Can anyone please help me?? I am confused!

    Any error messages?

    Are you installing directly on the device, or are you downloading the app via iTunes and trying to sync to the device?
    Do you have sync apps selected in iTunes?
    3GS, iOS 4
