    hi,
    I am having samasung galaxy fit, android version 2.2.1

    i am connected to the wifi, and the internet is working fine, no issues at all, i am able to send mails from gmail account and receiving mails also.

    BUT when I try to login to gtalk, it gives me the error "Could not connect to server, will retry shortly". Also I am not able to download any thing from the market.

    I have tried doing the factory reset several time, but of no use.

    Please help.

    First of all, im not a galaxyfit user, But found an information on another forum that could help...

    Step 1: In the android menu, go to the settings.
    Step 2: Select applications.
    Step 3: Load list by clicking 'Manage apps"
    Step 4: Click on Google talk; Click clear data and Click ok to confirm.
    Step 5: Under clear button, click clear cache.

    This may not be a fix, but is worth a try. :) let know if it helps!

    I am using Motorola Defy MB525. Connected to internet through Wifi. I could browse and see the mails from gmail and others, but when I try to download some application it stuck with "Starting Download". From a google site I found suggestion to restart gtalk. I subscribed to gtalk and try to connect but that also stuck with "Could not connect to server. Will retry".
    I'm trying the same for several days. I cleared the gtalk and other caches as suggested , switched between 3G and 2G and did few factory resets etc, but no solution yet. :mad:

    Has any body found a solution for this? Please help? I see from others that this doesn't work for internet connections other than Wifi also.

    I had the same problem, try this it works:
    Go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All
    1. Select 'Market' -> Clear Cache -> Clear Data
    Go back
    2. Select 'Google Services Framework' -> clear cache -> clear data
    3 Reboot
