    Cant download files

    Up until about 2 weeks ago I was able to download large files onto my phone over the 3G network. I work on computers alot out and about and use this feature to get drivers and software updates to put onto computers. Yet recently I haven't been able to download anything other than android market apps. I tried a bunch of different things, new browser, factory reset of my phone, nothing seems to work. Im wondering if anyone has any suggestions or maybe has a solution to this. The next step im going to do when I get time is format my SD card and see if there are any files on there that are causing the issue. Along with desync my account and phone so nothing will be installed without me knowing. Any tips or help would be appricated.

    Not exacly, Im running stock OS, what happens is the file said Untitled, then under downloads it says waiting for connection. It seems to connect and then says the download is complete. What I end up with is a file that is 32 or 33kb in size and the title is of what I'm trying to download. I tried 3 browsers, got the same results. After a factory reset I got it to download one file, then suddenly no more after that. I thought maybe Verizon blocked downloads now, but that wouldnt make much sense. Any ideas?

    I'd have to try it on my own Droid to see what happens. Give me a download link and let me see. I'll use my D1 on WiFi and see if I can't pull it in.

    Good question, I thought it might be something like an update too. I could do it all the time before I factory reset my phone the first time. After I did, it worked a few times then down hill from there. Maybe something updated and I wasn't aware? If that's the case we would probably have to wait it out for a while. Wouldnt it prompt for an update though?

    So I tried factory reset again. No different. So it's either on the SD card, 3G, or Verizon. It could be where Im downloading from too, but I doubt it since I get the same results everywhere >_>
