Can't download apps over the air (iPhone only)

Hey everyone, I've been having a problem the last couple weeks of having my iPhone 3G. I can't download apps through the AppStore on the iPhone itself. This happens whether I am connected through EDGE, 3G, and even WiFi.

After I select an app to download, the progress bar goes almost the whole way saying "Installing" and then hangs at the end. It then displays the dialogue box you see in the screenshot.


Also, I have reset/turned off my iPhone multiple times, so that doesn't seem to fix this issue.



PS: My backups are still also taking forever, it might be related to this issue because iTunes app store and the app store on my phone constantly have to sync/delete because they never bloody work correctly.
