I have the same problem. Can't download apps or activate an account over 3g/2g(I can browse the internet though ). When I'm using wifi everything works perfect.

I'm sure you have already done this but worth putting out there anyway. . .


You have set up a google or gmail account?


I know when I got mine I tried using the market before connecting to my google account and it just hung.

Ditto what HTC-Fandroid said... plus a bit!

-You can't get anything off the Market until you have a gmail account and I couldn't set that up on the wildfire using the wifi - it just claimed I had no connection.
- I registered with gmail on my laptop, STILL couldn't connect to the market over wifi, but internet/mail access was fine.
- I turned off wifi, and let it connect over the mobile network. Allowed me to register and connect to the Market, no problem!
- Now it works fine over wifi or mobile...

I am having the same problem.
What has worked for me so far is what moggieandmarmite said. I had been trying to download text to speech all day. I plugged my phone in to the laptop, went to the marketplace and started download connected to the computer. Worked first time.
I should also mention that my computer does not recognise my phone yet even though I have installed HTC synch.
Weird.
I hope they find a fix for this.

Default It works!

I have finally managed to connect my wildfire to my PC. I had to switch on USB debugging in settings. It didn't connect first time but then I disconnected the USB and then plugged it in again and it worked fine. I did a synch and ever since then I have been able to download all apps in the marketplace without problems through wi-fi and using 3g.
Hope this helps.

hi, i had the same problem, and it is simple to fix, back up your phone, factory reset your phone and create a gmail account NOT google mail for example john@gmail.com NOT john@googlemail.com once you have created the gmail account then go to the market app and sign in with your gmail account and wala your done, hope this works for people like it worked for me good luck peps

Dear friend,

You need not to worry.just do one thing, go on your android market and select free apps menu.then simply click on app which you wanna download when you click. it will display and downloading on background.If this not appear then you have to upgrade your os 2.1 to 2.2 froyo.

thanx,
honey dhillon

Default Market won't download apps

As long as you have set your google account up you should be ok to use android market,what i have found is that google talk is required to run,this can be found in your "App Drawer"(left option button)activate google talk
and you should be ok to download after that, it seems that after it has been activated once the market works as normal.
Hope this helps.

I know this is an oldish post but I just thought I would reply anyway. This happened to me today but It was because the phone was low on memory. Cleared off some stuff I didnt need and downloads started straight away.

I have a similar problem, however mine doesn't even start downloading before it says "download unsuccessful". I have tried plugging it into my computer and logging into "talk", but it still won't work. It has worked before, since I got it four weeks ago.
Any Ideas???

Default HTC Wildfire Won't download apps

Two weeks ago I changed my phone, to a HTC Wildfire. I have been really pleased with this however, I also had problems trying to download apps. I researched many sites, rang through to my provider with no luck initially. After trying all ideas people had posted I tried resetting my phone to factory settings. Unbelievable but this finally did the trick. I have no problems now

Cry can't download things

Hey guys. I'm new here, and I'm sure many of the Wildfire users came across this one little problem. There are some apps and games in the market that are not compatible with the phone. I don't know where I can download them from so that they work properly and don't force close. can anyone please help or something? Thanks in advance
