    this may seem like a dumb question, but are you connected to the internet?

    sometimes i accidentally leave wifi on/mobile internet off when i leave the house (so it can't connect to the internet)

    Thanks, but no luck, it didn't work.:thinking::(

    I have always been able to download apps and music still, but for some reason when i am on the internet and want to save a picture or quote,it wont do it anymore. It just says " waiting for data connection " stays on that for 5 mins then says "download unsuccessfull" have done the remove battery,remove sim etc etc and did what you said which ive done previously hoping it would work,but nope!

    I used to be able to do it no probs, so it is bizarre and frustrating.

    Try this:
    Settings>Applications>Check Unknown Resources
    Hope this works! :)

    I am having the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy, and tried both fixes shown above: cleared Download Manager, and made sure "Unknown sources" is checked under Applications. I still can't download: the "waiting for data connection" message, then Unsuccessful Download.
    Can anyone offer another suggestion? I download a lot from my browser, and suddenly losing this capability a few days ago is really bothering me.
    Thanks!

    Have you tried using a different browser like opera mobile or Dolphin HD.
