    Have you set up a gmail account?
    Market requires you to log in via a gmail account.

    Yes, but you need to update to Android 2.1, root your phone, and remove and replace Pantheon with another Home App. ie. HelixLauncher.

    If this all sounds "Double Dutch" to you, check out the Galaxy Spica and Galaxy Lite forums. (Same phone as Portal, just different name).

    There is a recognised problem with Gmail at the moment

    It is down to the new ability to change from the old @googlemail.com to @gmail.com

    The phone will not recognise your account if you change from @googlemail.com to @gmail.com

    If you have changed over you will need to revert back to the old email address extention of @googlemail.com

    You can do this through the settings section of the googlemail account

    Once your back as @googlemail.com you should be able to sync and use the market place

    Google are working on a fix for this issue
