Hello aces,

I can imagine the frustration that you have experienced due to your applications not updating.  Many apps need those constant updates to keep them working efficiently!  Have you tested the connection on Wi-Fi to see if they will update?  There is a setting that will cause applications not to update over the 3G network.  Make sure Data Saver is turned off in the Settings.

Menu>Settings>Battery and Data Manager>Data Saver>Data Saver>Uncheck.

Please keep me updated on the status so that we can work further towards a solution, if needed.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank You,

Re: can not get updates to work?

This has been happening to me for several months, and I even went to a VZW store to try to figure out why.  Today I decided I had time to look into it here on the forum, and lo and behold, there is my answer!  I changed the Data Saver setting and should be able to update or download apps via 3G instead of WiFi now.  Thank you!!
