This has me stumped. I have several Apple devices using my iTunes account, but only my iPhone is giving me grief lately.


iPhone 4S

iOS 5.1.1

iTunes Match is ON for music (does not affect podcasts in theory)



  1. Search for podcast I want to download using iTunes store app
  2. Find it and click on name to see episodes
  3. Results screen loads partially, then does nothing. Can see list of episodes, but cannot activate "Download" buttons.
  4. Wait for a few minutes. Wait a lot of minutes. Nothing changes, but network activity indicator is spinning around next to WiFi indicator.
  5. Quit iTunes app
  6. Restart app and it crashes
  7. Lather, rinse, repeat


I usually listen to episodes of the same 5 or 6 podcast series, like most folks. I was able to grab any of them directly from the iPhone before, but in the last few days it simply can't be done.


Clue: I CAN download music. I can pay for it. Just can't get podcasts.


What I've tried:

  • Log out and back in to store
  • Turn iTunes Match off and back on
  • Restart iPhone


No joy. Any ideas before I contact Apple support??

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1
