    I am waiting for car repairs and thought I would update some apps and this pops up.

    I am connected to 3G ~ I am confused ~ which is not hard these days.

    Hi Marie! The app you are trying to update is more than 20mgs. So you cannot use 3G to update this app. That is why it tells you to wait until you get to a wifi hotspot. ATT limits the amount of data it will transport--anything less than 20 Mg is okay. I think there is also the possibility that your download will experience a disconnection during this big download and the file might get corrupted and you would have to start all over again AND pay for it again (costs money to use 3G).

    Because it says AT&T 3G in the upper left corner of your screen!

    "I'm just sayin'..."

    Also, you ONLY get this message when trying to download 20+mb applications using the 3G function. Even on the wi-fi + 3G iPad you'll get this message if the wi-fi is turned off or you are not connected to a network.
