Small update,

There seems to be plenty of threads about this on the android market forums and it may be that 'copy protected' apps - which is MOST paid and SOME free ones are blocked because Orange is not a member of the Open Handset Alliance.

Seems that Google have recently put in place an anti-piracy policy that if your handset is a) a developer one, b) unlocked or c) being used through non-OHA carrier then you cannot access 'copy protected' apps.

There seems to be quite an uproar about this and petitions to get Google to change the policy as (as is pointed out) it won't stop your average pirate anyway and only genuine users, such as those of us on Orange are suffering as a result.

Ho Hum....
