Default Why is my market not downloading anything?

Ive been trying to download a few applications on my t-mobile pulse recently and nothing seems to work

ive cleared the market cache and rebooted the phone and yet nothing seems to work?

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?!! It sooo annoying!

Please Help!!

What's happening when you try and download? Are you getting the "download unsuccessful" message?

If so, then there's a couple of things you can try, but in my experience (this has happened twice with my son's Pulse) they don't work and you end up with the last option:

Clear Market Cache
Force Close Market
Re-Boot

Remove SD Card
Force Close Market
Re-Boot
Re-install SD Card

Set Auto-Update of Time/Date to OFF
Force Close Market
Re-Boot

Set Auto-Update of Time/Date to ON
Force Close Market
Re-Boot

Last option: Factory Wipe/Reset the handset (this will lose everything on the phone - SD card will be safe, contacts and calendar are safe in sync'd to either Google or desktop)

As I said, we have had to do that twice with son's phone. One point there - when you factory reset phone, the FIRST time you go into the "My Downloads" section of the Market it'll list ALL your previously downloaded apps (free and paid for). Should you then exit the Market and go back in, you'll find it only lists the paid for apps. Good idea to write down your apps BEFORE resetting cos you're bound to forget something!

If you want a laugh, go and have a look at this forum thread. Started by a Google employee in May last year asking for people's experience with the "Download Unsuccessful" issue. At the time of writing, 419 responses and not one acknowledgment from Google.

Download issues: Download Unsuccessful - Android Market Help

It's not confirmed if it's a handset, network or Market problem but considering it's happening to all kinds of people all over the world on different networks and handsets, it's a fair bet that it's a Google problem.

But they HAVE given us animated wallpapers, remember!

there's a solution written on the google discussion thread mentioned above which works for me very well: if you can't download from the market, start the google talk application and check if you're signed in. if not, sign in manually, then downloads will start instantly. i think the reason for that is that the market uses google talk to authenticate your account so you have to be signed in to download from it.

Google Talk sign-in has been mentioned in various places as a solution - didn't work for my son's Pulse. Signed out, back in, etc, made no difference.

There's a really easy way to get the market working again (worked for me anyway)

Open the TALK app, and hit menu, then sign out

Then go to the settings and uncheck the auto sign-in option

Close talk, and go back to the market app and should work fine.

Hope this helps someone, as it really frustrated me for a few days when it happened to my Desire

Thanks for the tips!!

Removing the SD card, downloading the app(s), and re-installing the SD worked for me.
