    Almost all the apps I try to download on my t-mobile pulse don't download, a message appears in the message window saying 'download unsuccessful.' It happens alot even thought I have full connection and alot of memory space. Does anyone know what is wrong and how can I fix it?

    i know it sounds simple, but have you tried rebooting the phone and trying again? this happened with me and seemed to do the trick.

    might seem like a dumb question, but these are apps your getting from the market? You have to turn on 3rd party app installation.

    I have the same problem. It comes up with download unsuccessful and i have heaps of space left. How do you turn on 3rd party app installation?

    i think its a known problem with the new market and something to do with the amount of space the phone reserves for downloads, i was having the problem before and every now and again i just cleared the dalvik cache and rebooted and all worked fine. should hopefully be fixed soon its a common problem.

    until then this is a workaround:
    go to apktop website and download your apps, put them on phone by connecting usb (or just download them through your mobile browser) and click on them to install, simples, this is your only option until they fix it themselves as it seems alot of people cant download the bigger apps and games.

    hmmm, just as a word of caution... i have no personal knowledge of the above referenced site but just wanted to give a general word of warning when downloading apk's from "non" official websites, they can be risky
