beleive that is a limitation that Apple has built into the IOS, so unles you utilize a alternate method of getting the phone to do things that Apple blocks - nope

Apple placed this limit to avoid excessive use of cellular data for larger downloads.

You have to use wifi or iTunes.

The 20mb limit has been around since the only data plan was unlimited. I don't think the restriction was originally put in place to avoid excessive use of cellular data but rather to avoid tying up Apple's servers because downloading over the cellular network tended to take very long. With faster download speeds now available, maybe it's time for Apple to remove that restriction.

"Faster", in what way--data speed throughput (i.e., your cellular data speed is much faster than that of your ISP or some other Wifi hotspot)...or is it because you need to download that app ASAP that you can't wait until you are able to connect to iTunes or d/l via Wifi hotspot?  If the former--then boy, I can only dream that the 3G speeds I get in my area can be anywhere near as fast as what I get from my ISP...

Re: D/L Apps beyond 20mb limit

You must have a terrible ISP where you live...the fastest speeds I've ever gotten on my phone are in the 5Mbps range, and my cable normally is 15-25Mbps. Normally, I don't get above ~2.5Mbps on cellular data.

 

On another note, you do realize you just used between 10 & 12% of your friend's data plan allotment (depending on whether she's on the 4 or 5GB hotspot plan) to download your game, don't you?

LOL--I hadn't caught that; imagine the potential cost savings you'd reap from using someone else's hotspot plan rather than shelling out money to pay for your own hotspot plan, plus not having to worry about that 500 MB chunk of d/l eating into your own available data bucket.  Talk about scoring big time--LOL!!!
