Default Unable to download Samsung apps.

Installed a new firmware but forgot to do a backup . Been able to download all my apps again from the market, but when I try to download anything from the Samsung apps folder ( 8 items ), I get the message ' Network unavailable '. Anyone had the same problem ?.

I had randomly the "network unavailable" message, mostly in the first days after I got the phone. It got better and better through time.
I am not sure if it helps, but maybe you will see the same thing after a firmware update?

Btw, you can't backup most of the apps unless if your phone is rooted.

Phone is rooted. Use MyBackupPro & Titanium to be on the safe side. This time I decided to have a good clean out & formatted the external & internal sd cards without saving to pc first, so I lost my backups. Just annoyed that I cannot download Asphalt5.
