"download unsuccessful" only from internet, not market
If ever I try to download a file from the internet on my htc desire s the message comes up after about 1 second of trying to download: 'download unsuccessful'. The only threads I can find on this subject concern problems with downloading apps from the market, but I can download from the market with no problems. I have had the phone since Jan 2012 and for about 6 months it would download from the internet with no problems.
I have tried to download various files, e.g. PDFs and podcasts. There is nothing wrong with the websites because I can download from the same sites on my laptop and have tried to download files that I had previously downloaded when it was working but this is now not working.
SD card toal space: 7.50G, available space: 2.23GB.
Internal storage available space: 0.90G
In 'internet settings', it says 'download storage: storage card', but this is greyed out so that I cannot change it. cache size: 6mb, plugins: always on.
I have tried unmounting and remounting the SD card, downloading from wifi and mobile network (e.g. 3G), clearing data in download manager and calling my service provider but none of this has worked.
I am in the UK and bought the phone new.
I will greatly appreciate any help, thanks.
