    The subject says it all. Market downloads and updates fine with wifi off, hangs forever with wifi on. I've seen other threads on this but no answer. I've had this issue non-rooted, and rooted.

    Even if you don't know the answer, does anyone else have this issue? I know a few other people have seen it.

    Wifi works perfect besides the market issue.

    Happens all the time to me. Even way back in the 1.5 days. Its quite random. Some days they download instantly, others it just hangs there for about 20 minutes at starting download. 3G works everytime, even if it is slower. My only advice is to download apps via 3G, then reenable Wifi, if at all possible.

    Bummer. I'm rooted, but I'll still be glad when I'm done with this phone.

    Lol, its not just you...!

    I've had this problem on my Eris w/1.5, rooted 2.1 and on my un-rooted Droid X (2.1).

    When it doesn't work on wi-fi, I just usually switch-over to 3G for a bit until things start kicking-off... Weird, I know...

    Going by what I could find online, its a problem with Android (or the Google Marketplace), not necessarily the Eris itself. And like I said, its quite random. For some, it works fine, for others, its sort of a hit or miss.

    I have this problem on my Galaxy Nexus. It also affects Google Voice. Just tried it on a fresh 4.0.4 reset with nothing extra installed except Voice and it still continues to fail for both.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having a problem. This is the forum for the HTC Droid Eris. You may have better luck getting a solution if you post a question on our Galaxy Nexus forum, here: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Android Forums

    Even though I have an HTC, I just thought I might mention my thoughts.

    With both my current HTC EVO and my former HTC Hero, the Automatic updates always hang-up. Also if I attempt to download multiple apps or multiple updates together, the all hang.

    I am not saying this is the solution, but just a suggestion, you might want to try installing apps one at a time and only manually installing updates one at a time.

    Just a suggestion.

    Slutter, do you have an HTC Droid Eris or a different phone?

    One thing that you can *try* that won't hurt: from home, go to settings->applications->manage applications. Find "Google Play Store" and tap it. (If you don't have "Google Play Store", look instead for "Market".) Try tapping the button that says "uninstall updates" if you have one and restart the Play Store. If you don't have that button, try "clear data" and see if that helps when you restart the Play Store.

    Also, once you connect to the Play Store with your phone, after a factory reset you can go to https://play.google.com/apps on a PC web browser and reinstall all of your old apps by clicking "install" for each app. The apps will be installed to your phone over-the-air, as long as you have a data or WiFi connection.
