    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
