    Hello guys
    When i want to download an app which is more than 20mb, my ipad doesn't allow and says u must connect to a wireless network to download more than 20mb !
    Is there any setting that i could change and download more than this amount?

    This is an Apple imposed limit. If you want to download an app, music or movie that's larger than 20 MB then you need to switch from 3G to WiFi. There is no way around this on a non-jail break iPad. It annoys people like me who have a poor broadband connection because I live in a rural area but there's a 3G cell tower on top of the hill within sight of my house and I have an unlimited data plan.

    But, if it's over 20 MB you need to switch to WiFi.

    Jailbreak and download my3g from Cydia, tricking the app or apps into thinking its on wifi when it's not.

    Sent from my iPad using iPF

    wish they had setup the ipad to show a warning, and to ask whether you still want to proceed or not

    maybe we should setup a petition Tim

    I also think an alternative to the problem is to get a wireless router (modem). That way you connect via Wi-Fi but still use 3g, i.e. your iPad connects to the router via wifi and the router connects to the net via 3G.
