    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Make sure you have this enabled. Settings - App Store - use cellular data. I've never used this for downloading apps so I'm not sure if it will allow over 20mb. Others will maybe chime in here to inform you.

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad. There is a wealth of information already here in the many threads we have so doing some searches will answer most of the questions you have. If then you cannot find the answer you are seeking then by all means post your question. There are many friendly and informed members here only too willing to help you.

    We also have our own App - Discussion Forum for IPad Users. It is a very simple app to navigate.
    Reading the IPad manual is a great place to start so please download a copy of these.

    I've since found out that you cannot download apps over 20mb using 3G. You need to do this with a wifi connection. Although if you were jail broken you could, but having said that you cannot as there isn't a jailbreak available for IOS5 as yet.
