Cannot install or transfer apps on Iphone! Application tab greyed out on Itunes!
The other day I almost went crazy because I downloaded an application from Itunes Appstore and couldn’t transfer my applications to my Iphone 2G (as much as I want to have an Iphone 3G, I will wait until this one dies).
After some time of troubleshooting, googling, authorize computer on the itunes, and many other steps, I was able to find out what the problem was.
I needed to remove the restrictions on my iphone. To do that go to Settings > General > Restrictions and set them to off.
I have no idea why they were set to on, but that did the trick.
Geeeee, Thanks a lot mate, that worked!
I gave up on it already as the apple site said that I could only use the apps in the country where I registered my credit card. As I’m travelling around the world, that didn’t really make sense to have an iphone then.
I’ll let you know when I’m around Costa Rica, the beer is on my tab.
Excellent! Glad that it worked! I was also really annoyed by the fact that I couldn’t install apps. It’s kind of weird that Apple doesn’t have a “Your IPhone has restrictions turned on. Please turn off restrictions to be able to install applications” message. They are well known to be user friendly, but I guess we found an exception.
thanks dear it works
My pleasure! Glad I was of assistance!
