    I'm surprised you can get to the market at all. You see, while Android is open source and "free", access is not, so to gain access to the market, among other things, manufacturers must pay licensing fees to Google. A lot of the lower end devices from points east do not have access specifically for this reason.

    There are ways others have got access to the market that are dubious, but that's not entirely fair to Google to be spreading methods to bypass their IP rights. Sorry.

    That said, there are other legitimate ways to get apps that are nonindependent of Google's app market, which might work for you. Just be wary of some free app sites as they are distributing unauthorized copies of apps with potential malware infection vectors.

    I had the same problem with my Ciphone A9 version.

    1) Turn off phone.
    2) Take out back cover
    3) Take off battery
    4) Take out SD card
    5) Put them all back in
    6) Start her up and try again.
