is there a downloader application with resume support that is available for PC and Mobile devices? I tried to look for a Java downloader but it seems what I found would not work for iPhones... then - what works for iPhones doesn't work for other devices...

or could anyone point me to multiple applications that at least look similar and work on all/most modern mobile devices and PCs? preferably free ones :-)

EDIT: I need to download large (around 300-500MB) media files, which would normally need to be re-downloaded once a connection is lost (like when you download a DVD image in Firefox and you loose Internet connection in the middle)

so far, I have been able to find Jumploader (http://www.jumploader.com/documentation.html) and JDownload (http://jdownload.jupload.biz) for PCs, but I'm new to mobile devices, so that's why I'm asking you :-)

you need to be more specific. "Downloader" is a very generic word. What do you need to download? –  bruno077 Jan 27 '11 at 12:28
I agree, be more specific. I don't know if iPhones even have download managers (Apple store, etc). And they certainly have no Java MIDLETs like MANY phones. –  sinni800 Jan 27 '11 at 12:34
I've edited the question, providing more details of what I need... so for iPhones, there are downloaders at all? –  Zathrus Writer Jan 27 '11 at 13:57
