    when I pick an app to download from market, it won't download. They just sit there "preparing to download"

    Any thoughts ?

    There is several things that you can try, make sure you have the WiFi turned off for the market will not let me download if connected, also make sure you have checked off the Unknown Sources under your Application Settings just to make sure. Other than that I would make sure you can browse the web and if that fails then I am not sure.

    Well you don't need to turn off wifi or check unknown sources. Those won't be the problem.

    are you signed into google talk? Apps won't download unless you are

    I also had the same problem.

    I used SE Update Service to re-install he firmware. I haven't had no problems since. *touch wood*

    I use Wi-Fi only to download apps and there hasn't been a problem. I have never signed in to Google Talk and still have no problem. Sometimes it will look like the app isn't doing anything but preparing to download or sometimes it doesn't even show that for a while but as long as I wait for a while, it will eventually kick and do what it is supposed to do. The wait usually is at most 20 seconds or so.

    Though I also had reinstalled the firmware because the phone funtionality stopped working once, so maybe that is the way to go. I'm not sure. If you choose this route, make sure you back everything up first.

    Thanks - that indeed was the problem. I changed back to "googlemail.com" from "gmail.com" and that fixed it instantly. Can I buy you a beer ?

    you can do. .live in Wycombe UK, next time u around, give a shout ;-)

    you can change to Gmail, but I had to do a clean install, wipe it clean and start again to get my gmail working properly.

    their might be an other way.. but the fresh install worked for me.
