    I've also been having problems trying to log into the store, I keep getting the error message 'We could not complete your iTunes store request. The network connection was lost.' also my iPod touch keeps loosing connection with the store aswell.


    Also earlier I had been having quite a few problems downloading apps, I dont know if it's related but every app i download is getting stuck on 'waiting'.

    I had the same issues, searching thru the posts, I ran across a post that suggest adding a credit card to your account intead of selecting "none". I added a card and it work. I lost sleep over this stupid thing! Good luck and I hope it work!

    Last week I discovered I couldn't update apps or download new ones on my iPhone 4s. Tried logging out and in to app store, and downloading from my iTunes on my Mac computer. Nothing worked. The apps would just hang there, all grey, and the message would say "waiting..." Finally, I took it to the Apple store. The Genius Bar guy said it appears I had corrupted software _ possibly the operating system update. He wiped the phone, returning it to new but with the updated operating system installed. Then I synced to iTunes and restored my apps, contacts, etc. Now it works fine.
