    I seem to have a bit of difficulty with the market (ever since using Market Enabler). All the apps I choose to download just sit at "Starting Download" until I turn wifi off and on and reconnect to my network. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I've tried switching fake carriers a few times, which I seem to need to do anyway, cuz paid apps seem to disappear after a while.

    I used to see this a lot with 1.5, not so much with 1.6 (though that could be coincidence.)

    The workaround I found was to go into the stalled download, cancel the download, then on the very next screen hit download (or install, whatever it says) again. Nine times out of ten it'd fire off into life straight away.
