Default Apps wont Download from Market

Ok quick question i tried searching but there is sooo much info in these threads haha, got my Nexus yesterday ordered thru ebay from singapore as it seems, anyhow, set it up, everything is fine so far, but apps wont download from the android market. coimes up with a error
Any hints?


somone suggested:
"Might be a regional thing if you imported it? You can fix that by typing in a code that lets you choose from the CSC list to better match your country.


I actually changed mine to Germany (DBT) because they get the updates faster :P Havent had an issue with Market apps. " tho im relatively new to importing and fiddling with phones and i have utterly no idea what this means or if it will work!


also when i go to the market on the Laptop to d/l that way, its trying to send to my old HTC Legend, and i cant see how to update THAT to a nexus?

gimme a break. there's been intermittent probs with the android app market since it's inception. it's not your phone, or ICS.

some apps won't work with ICS properly once downloaded because it's a new OS.

like i said, the android app market's had it's share of issues. i've encountered your situation countless times. it's not as well supported as apple's market.

Are you connected to the Verizon server? Doesn't sound like it.
Are you logged on to a gmail account? I don't know if its required for Market downloads.

But the sound of it, you just bought a (highly questionable "Galaxy Nexus") off market and tried to download things from the Market without having Verizon service.

Are you even in the states?

Im getting constant errors as well. "App could not download from the market due to an error (-101)"

Been like it for a couple of days now.

OK, i have a fix.

Go to settings > account & sync and click on your google account. Click the menu button and remove this account. turn your phone off and on and then open your market app. It will ask you to add a google account to the phone, do so, and then download at your will.

Hope this helps!

Not a problem!

This isnt a permanent fix. But Just repeat if the same error occurs. I havent come across a downside to it yet.

I wonder if simply deleting the Market's data would have the same result ...? Be a lot faster.

You would think so, but sadly not. As far as i can deduce you need to basically reset your account for the phone, well for the market. I would guess that logging out of Market and logging back in would also fix the problem, but i dont believe this option exists.
