All of a sudden my iPhone 4 (iOS4.0.2) can no longer download apps. It says:
The Apple Id you entered Couldn't be found or was incorrect. Please try again.
I know for certain that the password is entered correctly. I have only 1 iTunes ID. I downloaded an app successfully this morning, over 3G. But now I consistently get this message when I try to download any app! I'm still on 3G with adequate signal strength.
I've quit all running apps, I've restarted (twice) and even a hard reset. But still I get this message. I've also noticed that the battery level is falling rapidly (1% every 2 min's) despite no other running apps/wifi/Bluetooth, so it must be doing some heavy 3G traffic.
What's up? How can I solve this? Preferably without involving my PC at home because I will be travelling for the next few days...
My exact steps:
- tap on App Store
- find any (free) app, tap on
Install. Itunes closes, I see a white placeholder app icon labeled
Waiting..., and I'm asked my iTunes password.
- I enter the correct password and tap
- The white placeholder icon is still
Waiting...for a long time.
- After ~5min's the correct app icon is show, but still labeled
- After additionally ~5min's there's a new popup with the text
The Apple Id you entered Couldn't be found or was incorrect. Please try again.and buttons
Note: I've seen entries like this one but they are based on working on a Macintosh. I'm at work so I hope for a mobile solution.
