    Hello Guys, this is my 1st post. But I've been using my iPhone 3GS for 5 months now. Just today I noticed that the App Store app doesn't load the CATEGORIES anymore, as in the screen is just blank. While the other parts like "Featured, Top 25, Search and Updates" worked fine. I already made a restart a couple of time, still doesn't work. This is the 1st time I'm having such problem. Any ideas please?

    I tested mine, and it works. I suggest that you log out of the app store from your device, and then clear the safari cache (settings \ safari).

    Once done, log back into the app store, and then try it...

    Thank you very much for replying naviwilliams. I did all the steps you suggested (2x), but still the
    Categories is not loading. It will just show the "loading..." for a second then blank.

    Are you using wifi? If yes, turn it off, then try it. If it's not on, turn it on connect to a wifi, and then try it...

    Also, are you jailbroken and unlocked, or?

    Yes, I'm using wifi. I turned it off already, made a restart, then turned it on again - still no go. Not jailbroken, I'm not into that. Bought this unit "factory" unlocked, from Hong Kong. The phone worked perfectly well for 5 months now. i just don't understand why this problem suddenly. There was no unusual operation today. Other than this "Categories" not loading, the phone is working fine.

    hey guys. an update.

    i called apple today, and the guy told me that apple is experiencing some problems with the app store in this context, the cat tab.

    So, he told me to try again in the next couple of days when they fixed the issue.

    therefore, do not worry. its not our device but its apple's problem.

    CHEERS!
