hmm.. updated to 2.1 but now can't download anything...problem with the market or my phone?
Hi a couple of days ago I upgraded my phone to 2.1 and I love the little improvements. However, one thing that does seem to be a problem is downloading from the market.
Basically I've been trying to download three app updates for the past two days and it can't do it. It also won't let me cancel them. I think there's a glitch somewhere which has made these things go wrong. When I go to the download area in the market there are three bars, one for each o these apps, with the word "installing" beneath. However, they are not installing anything as they have been like this for days now, and I can't even cancel them.
And if I try and and download anything else, eg Retro camera, or the kindle app for android, the same thing happens - Basically it always LOOKS like it's downloading as I get the little arrow in the notifications window to indicate the download, but then it just... disappears! Sometimes it gets to 100% before disappearing into the ether. There is no indication to show that it has downloaded successfully or unsuccessfully, no message, nothing! It's almost like it didn't happen.
But often in the market downloads window it says the app is "installing", but the download bar is blank. So I have to cancel and start again, to no avail.
Has anyone else had this happen and how did you sort it?
