can't update apps

When I try to use the play store to update apps it just runs and continues to run but never downloads anything.  All other internet functions that I use are working.  I checked to see if my system needed updates and it says it its good. I also reset the phone and that didnt change anything.

Are you trying to update over the cellular data connection or the wifi connection? Have you checked your Play Store settings to verify you haven't restricted updates to a certain type of connection? Or the battery saving settings in the phone itself?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I'm updating via cellular I don't have WiFi access at all.  I haven't used WiFi while owning this phone but a few times.  I checked my settings and didn't see any settings that will restrict downloads in the main settings menu or the play store menu

I noticed it about 1-2 weeks ago when I tried to update my Verizon Mobile app to pay my bill and still haven't been able to update it

Let's get your apps downloading, cdythms! Do you receive any type of error message when trying to download the applications? Please try this step: Go to the menu–>settings–>apps–>all–>google play store–> remove cache, then try to run your google play again. Any change in downloading ability?
