    I was trying to download an app that was about 3 mbs and it wouldnt download. It would show the spinny bar but it wasnt actually downloading. It finally downloaded while I was in wifi. This was the same case with downloading pdf files and really anything that involves downloading. I am currently using the galaxy s4 on the AT&T network. The thing that is weird about this problem is that I can surf the web and do anything else that requires internet on mobile data its just I cant download anything over mobile data. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Weird. Did you try restarting your phone? Data outage in your area maybe?

    Yeah I tried everything. Its been going on for about 2 weeks now. It used to work perfectly and now it wont work at all. But my friend has the gs4 and his still downloads things off of cellular data perfectly fine.

    I would call AT&T and if they can't help, Samsung to troubleshoot.

    Sorry I can't be of further help.
