    I upgraded from an Eris to an Incredible yesterday, and to my dismay, when I went to download apps that I had on my Eris from the market, many were not there. For example, I had several family guy sound boards. Searching "family guy" from my increrdible, i got a total of 33 hits. Only 2 soundboards. I got at least 100 if not more searching from the Eris. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I simply must have the Mr. Herbert "Guess who?" again for a ringtone lol.

    Yeah, this is weird. My friend said freaking angry birds doesn't show up in the market on his phone. I also couldn't find typo clock on my phone.

    I once heard a rumor that the market is device specific for many of the apps.

    i'm having the same issue. my phone (optimus s) shipped with froyo and well over half my paid apps aren't showing up. i can't imaging why espn radio or world festivals would be device specific. emailed google with no luck. of course.

    Could this be some kind of competition? If so it really does harm to Android's openess!

    It's not about openness or anything but about information flow between Google and phone manufacturers.
