    I have a 3GS and I am able to use the iTunes app on the phone to download music and apps but for some reason when I go to download videos it says:

    "this item cannot be downloaded on this network. you must connect to a wifi network or use itunes on a computer to download"

    Is there a reason why it cannot be downloaded using my phone data plan?

    EDIT: oops meant to post this in the iphone forum.

    the package is to large to download on 3g it would take hours wifi maybe 10 minuets. same reason you are only aloud to use them on wifi, to fix just connect to wifi and download, or if your jailbroken download 3g unrestricted and it should work

    it most likely says that because you are not connected to a wifi network, but a 3G/EDGE network.

    You must connect to wifi because it can't download from 3G, it would just be very very slow.

    Thanks. I didn't realize it would take so long on the 3G network.
