    First off, welcome to the forums :)

    Have you set up your Google account on your phone so you can use the features such as the market, Gmail...

    What are you running? 1.6? 2.2? If its a custom rom you may need to flash again or you can try downloading the apps online and transferring to your SD card.

    1.6, Going to upgrade to 2.2. I haven't tinkered with that phone so I've no idea what's wrong. I've connected my Google Account to my phone and all seemed well until the market problem.

    Thanks for the welcome :D

    So you have the apps installed on the phone but you can't use them? or the applications just aren't there? such as market, maps, latitude?

    Here's the problem:

    I reset my phone two days ago because I couldn't sync with my Google account. I synced my google account to my phone after resetting it, I tried to download apps (from the android market) but I couldn't. I do not want to use Getjar or something like that because of the selection. I can use all of google services besides the Market which is the one I want most.

    Hmm, odd - try doing a google search and downloading a market.apk and copying to your sd card and see if that works...
