    For some reason when trying to download an App from the market it just sits on "Starting Download..." even when connected to wifi etc. Its been like this for a couple of days now. I've tried everything but can't seem to get it working.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    Open google talk and let it sign in. That should fix it :)

    I had that problem once when I removed one of the system critical apps after rooting my phone. Reflashing your ROM should do the trick. Unless you're on vanilla then I have no clue...

    I solved the very same problem by changing my email address back to @googlemail.com rather than @gmail.com, when i did this my downloads instantly kicked in, hope this helps some folk.:cool:

    Good idea; switching between the two has messed it up for a lot of people.

    I think emails sent to @gmail will still go to you anyway. That's how mines always worked.

    I've got the same issue. Last week I was in Android Market and I wanted to download a few applications, which just sit on Downloads. I tried it many times, no way. Then I made a few factory resets. Now I can even sign up with my ...@gmail.com account. Because of it I cannot use any Google related application such as Android, GMail or GTalk.

    Any idea?
