cannot connect to itunes store
Called Apple and apparently they are aware of the issue and they said they have been getting complains about this issue for a couple days and are working on a solution.
So if the support guy is right, then 1 or more of the itunes servers are down primarily the ones that control updates.
Threads are popping at apple's support forum and was wondering if any1 else is noticing this problem?

I t was from my iphone, my ipad, my daughters iphone and my laptop - so i knew there had to be something going on. It cleared itself up by thurs. and no other issues since **knock wood**iHeartMy4S*drink that Kool-Aid, follow my lead. now you're one of us, you're coming with me*

I received that error with just about every app that I tried to download to my new 4S from the app store. Even though I got that message it still downloaded the apps after I hit install. I really hope it gets fixed because that was annoying to keep hitting OK with almost every app.

On my iPhone, I can connect to the store, search, browse new or featured and purchase and download anything I like - but I can't update. But, as I said, "update" works perfectly on my iPad. I'm guessing this is more likely to be a corrupted iOS/corrupted iTunes Store App (corrupted on my phone, that is) problem.
The mystery to me is why so many of us are experiencing the problem. I've done some searching and I find references to this issue dating back to 2008 or earlier, so it doesn't appear that it is exaclty a new problem. The only consistent "fix" I found was "restore original settings." That, apparently, works every time.
