    1. Reboot the phone.
    2. Clear Market and Market Storage cache.

    This is working well but I have to clear the cache after every 2 or 3 apps, is there anything I can do about that??

    There should be no need to do that every 2-3 apps.

    I will move this thread to the phone section as you will get more help there.

    Pardon my ignorance, but exactly how do I "Clear Market and Market Storage cache"?

    In my top bar, which I open by pulling down, I have in Notifications "Download unsuccessful". This happens both with Wi-Fi and with 3G. I have deleted Market, and it seemed to re-install itself automatically. I'm currently trying to download Dropbox as a workaraound for Kies not working.

    Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Menu (button) -> View -> All apps -> Market

    Otherwise, cancelling the download and then restarting it for a few times work quite nicely too.
