Ok turn off wifi for now and let me know if you get the same error while using the 3/4g connection.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

its working using the 3g updating the apps and downloading a new one


Expert:  Freddy M. replied 5 years ago.
Ok thank you that is what I thought may be happening. This usually happens due to a bandwidth error. Similar to what makes videos stop and start when watching them on youtube. The error means that the download is basically doing that and may get corrupted. If you are using a gaming system, downloading with another device, or streaming internet videos that can all contribute to this. A firewall on your wireless router can cause it as well. If it worked before turn your phone completely off and remove the battery. Wait at least 10 minutes and then try it again. That should give it enough time to reset and get it working again.
