    This used to work great, but somehow I noticed within the past week it has not.

    I cannot download/install any apps from the Android marketplace on the web. I click on the download button, click OK, and it says it will be dowloaded to the phone shortly, but it never does.

    (I have no problem downloading directly from the phone)

    Anyone else have this problem? Thanks all for your help!

    Try this. Try Menu | Applications | Manage Applications and for each application, select it and try moving them to the SD card.

    Then reboot the phone and go back into the Market and try another download.

    If this doesn't work, perhaps your Google account is messed up.

    Did you root your device?

    Did you have a replacement? I did, and I was showing 2 MT's on there. Make sure you are selecting the correct one.

    Thanks for the help! My phone is not rooted (yet!). I tried moving apps to the SD card, and still apps weren't installing from the web site.

    Then later I got a couple apps to work. Then one didn't. So it seems to be hit or miss for me. I guess it's not a huge deal since I can just get the app directly on the phone if I need to.

    Things either download from the market fine, or they don't.

    Your problem sounds as if you have an iffy 3G connection, or your WiFi is flakey.

    You might want to try re-activating your phone.
