Problems with Market and Youtube

    Hi everybody, recently I just got a Motorola Droid 2 Global from Verizon, with Gingerbread 2.3.3 installed on it (a Gift), and the first two days everything was working fine, I used Android Market to download and install Skype, to update other apps, like Youtube.
    But suddenly, Market doesn't download anything anymore. If I choose to install an app, Market will get stuck in "downloading", with a cycling bar, and will continue like that like for 45 minutes, when it will show a message saying that the app could not be downloaded. If that isn't enough, I can't no longer watch videos on Youtube, as they never load no matter what I do.

    Tried many many solutions that I found on the forum, like clearing cache and data, removing updates from market, trying with Micro SD Memory mounted and unmounted, the solution of Gtalk, rebooting phone, changing the memory, and so far, nothing has worked...

    I'm desperate, since I already spent hours searching for a solution in the forum and in youtube and nothing seems to work.
    Only thing I haven't tried is to hard reset the phone, I prefer to leave that as the last option.

    I hope anybody can help me.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry to hear about all those problems you're having. Anyway, what i would have suggest for you to try - it seem like you have already tried.

    Have you tried Uninstall/ reinstall Adobe Flash update. Usually, clearing data from the market and YouTube applications normally would have fixed the problem. If none of these troubleshooting tips don't work, then you have no other choice than to reset the device.

    But before doing so, I have two more questions

    It's located in the system updates. I've noticed that sometimes when I'm on WiFi I seem to have occasional problems connecting to some application. I'm not sure if that's the problem you're having. If you had access to 3G or 4G - it would be a lot easier to find out the cause of the problem.

    Ps. Try to keep all applications up to date with the latest/recent version.

    Well, I found system updates on about phone, and when I click on it it just says that my device is up to date.
    That's the procedure that I needed to do?

    And I think that I need to do that, because I can make calls and everything, but the info shows the number that the cellphone had with another SIM card, and it doesn't changes.
    Also, it doesn't shows to be in the range of the 3G network (only shows the normal signal bars).
    In the place where I live, if I send an sms to a number of the company, I can get temporal access to 3G to test if it works with another connection.

    Can you take the device in to be checked out by a technician...or try resetting it to see if that could possibly help.

    Best of luck. ;)

    Thanks, I'll try first to reset it. Should I reset it in the option that is on settings, or do a hard reset?

    Either way the phone will reset to factory default settings.

    Good luck.

    I tried that and didn't work, but I found something that may actually be the problem.
    I used a Nokia E63 with my Wi-Fi and youtube can't be watched on it like on the Droid 2 Global, so it seems that for some reason, the router may be blocking the phones to use some port I guess.
    Any idea?

    Now, I think I found the source of the problem.
    For some strange reason, youtube is not working on my cellphones, like I said.
    I tried on my PC, and I can watch videos, but they took a long time to load, which didn't happen before.
    Rebooted router, reconnected modem, and nothing has solved the problem. :S
    It is Google the one of the problem, my ISP or my router?

    And things get just more odd. Tried to stream a Youtube video via my Nokia E63 (I'll try with Droid 2) and video showed up perfectly. :S
