App Updates

Does anyone know what's going on here.  The last two apps that I tried to update on my iphone 4 resulted in a grey icon and the message "waiting".  They've both been in the waiting mode for several hours.  Any help would be appreciated.

I had a weird itunes update fail a week or so ago. Next time I synced to iTunes, the borked apps restored successfully. I think this means the update failed in the middle.

My 3G will freeze in the middle of loading an app sometimes. Just hold down on the app, as you would to move one. Then hit the home button, to stop the shake. After that it usually ask for the app store password again and finishes dl'ing. The main times I've seen it do this, is when you're on the phone or net while trying to load.

Actually had the same thing happen to me the about two days ago.  When I logged into iTunes and did a sync it update the two apps and that resolved the problem.  Have not had any more problem when updating an app.
