    I have a Motorola Razr with Verizon. In the last 1-2 weeks apps will not download/update from the Android Market unless I'm connected via wireless/wifi. My phone has 4G LTE with a download speed that is sometimes greater than what I can get connected to wifi. Why is the Android Market not letting me update or download apps unless I'm connected via wifi? I am not using a SD Card and have not fiddled (rooted) with the phone in any way. Is this happening with other phones and/or providers?

    On this same topic a friend with a Motorola smartphone, model unknown to me, asked me to come help her as she could only update her Slot Game and down load the MurphyUSA app with her MiFi on? She is on Verizo 4g and had strong signals.
    I had my Samsung Fascinate 3gphone and have never had to turn/connect to wi-fi to download any thing???

    There is a setting in the Market settings menu for "Update Apps on WiFi Only", be sure that is not checked.
