    Hi all, got my new Desire yesterday and when I'm trying to download an app, I click install and a box opens to say download will start soon, however when I go into downloads and open whichever app I want it says "starting download". Doesn't go any further than that? I waited 20 mins earlier and nothing happened!

    Can anyone offer any advice please? I have changed the SD card and although I don't think this will make a difference I thought it best to mention.

    Oh I'm connecting via wi-fi.

    TIA Paul.

    Turn the phone off and on again. That often clears random bugs like this one.

    What network are you on? I remember that when I got mine I had to contact T-Mobile to get a content lock taken off before I could download anything from the market.

    Don't quote me on this, im sure someone will be able to correct anything I get wrong but wasn't there a "glitch" when downloading apps from the market where if you had a @googlemail.com email address and recently changed it to @gmail.com then things wouldn't download.

    It probably doesn't relate to your issues but it's the only reason i've heard of when people can't download from the market

    Hello again guys thanks for all your help and advice, I must have set my phone up wrong because after a factory reset all is working fine. Cheers.

    I changed from googlemail to gmail and haven't got that problem.

    Glad you got it sorted sar050680.
