When my iPhone (3GS) is connected via 3G, I can't connect to the AppStore. It just loads a while and then says "Could not connect" and that's that.

When I have a WLAN connection, everything works fine.

This has been like this for quite some time now - it also didn't change after rebooting or updating to new versions of iOS.

What's going wrong there?

    are you able to browse websites on 3G, else your Cellular Data settings might be incorrect (Settings -> General -> Cellular -> Cellular Data Network) Jan 24 '13 at 13:09
  • Yes. I can browse Websites, use apps that need Network connections, send Messages in WhatsApp, everything except accessing the AppStore.

I also had a problem where the App Store was working on Wi-Fi, but not on 3G and 4G networks. I solved it by going into:

SettingsMobile Data (also called Cellular). Under the heading Use Mobile Data For, enable App Store.
