    Hi,

    Just got my desire today and updated to froyo (vodafone) and have downloaded quite a few apps. Now when im trying to download from the market downloads are starting but just end up as "download unsucsessful"

    Ive tried this on 3G & wifi & rebooting the phone with no luck

    Is this a known problem?

    Me too, there was a thread in the application forum about it yesterday, looks like they've been having problems on and off for a day or two now.

    EDIT: Keep trying, I finally downloaded Chrome to Phone (all 88KBs of it!) after about 20 attempts!

    ahh, thanks :)

    I recall now I had a problem with downloading an app on my galaxy the other day. Ive now managed to start the download for the mario live wallpaper, 10 mins and counting over wifi. Glad to know its the market and not the phone, loving the phone I didnt expect such a big jump from 1.5 to 2.2

    It's been happening to me for the last few days aswell,if you clear the market cache before you go to download or update it should work,at least it has for me.Getting pretty tedious having to do it every time though.

    Happens frequently since updating to 2.2 more often when I try to update all. Would be nice if Android at least rolled back to your last installed version rather than just wiping it out when the download fails!

    Hi kellyh33, and welcome to AF :)

    How did they send it to you? We need to know a bit more in order to suggest solutions.

    If it was a picture message it might be to do with image size, but I never use MMS so am not much good at debugging that.

    Since there are many ways of sending a picture (MMS, bluetooth, email, various cloud services) there's always the option of just trying a different method, but I understand that it's better to fix the problem.
