  2. Welcome to the forums... and to clear the cache from the market simply go to settings > applications > manage applications > market and then click the clear cache button

    but its still showing the keywords i have searched for ?
     

  7. then clear your browser

    2 ways to do it...

    1) settings> applications > manage applications > CLICK browser and clear

    2) Open Browser click menu button then more > settings then clear specific things like data, cookies, passwords etc...

    AFAIK it cannot be done from phone settings. I believe it can be done if you have root and you delete the relevant file. I have seen a post on here before that names the file.

    Any app that use cache can be cleared by the following method :

    System settings > Applications > Manage Applications

    Then search for That Application, long press it then hit clear cache

    SO.....

    System settings > Applications > Manage Applications

    Then Find Market, LongPress Market then hit clear cache

    Then Find Browser, LongPress Browser then hit clear cache

    On my N1, Settings=> Privacy => Factory Data Reset

    - clears it, along with shed-loads of other stuff (like downloaded apps..).


    Thankfully Google sync's back yr contacts & calendar & which APPs you'd purchased so you can download again for no-extra-charge....

    Cheers!

    HistoryEraser will do it. Installed and not tried yet, but the user reviews in the market are all good!:D

    Just downloaded MarketSearchEraser and it worked awesome.:)

    FINALLY.....after reading all the talk about rooting and of course the dreaded expert's feedback of "clearing cache" in manage application settings!!
