    I've heard of a bug where the phone starts to lag when downloading an app, it will be stuck on "starting download" when in reality it is actually downloading the app. Wait a bit and see if the phone jumps to the app appearing to be installed successfully.

    I purchased a Samsung Captivate a few days ago and I am having the same issue. When I try to download an app, it stays on downloading forever.

    Any luck finding a solution?


    Thanks

    Did you mess around with any of those third party connection managers, task killers, or battery savers? Try uninstalling them.

    Try clearing the cache in the market app. It worked for me. Mine wasn't hanging on "starting downloading" though. It was just failing to download.

    /Settings/Application/Manage Applications/Market/Clear Cache...

    You may try to clear saved info in other apps too. google voice etc...

    i just realized that all of this has been happening ever since i rooted the phone..

    do you think if i un-root and return to the phone to stock, the problem will get solved?
