    Thanks - I tried that. No luck. This started after I tried the NFC for the first time. Nothing seemed to happen between the phones - at least nothing happened that we could see. Then couldn't download...

    People having this issue..Are you on a GSM Nexus or a VZW Nexus? Are you stock or rooted with a custom rom?

    I found another site ([Q] Android Market error -101 - xda-developers) and followed this person's suggestions and it worked (YAY!)

    I had the same problem, here is what I did!

    Here is what I did:

    1. Settings
    2. Personal: Accounts and Sync
    3. Selected my Google account
    4. Once within my Google account, clicking on the context menu/settings menu I selected "Remove Account"
    5. Once the account was removed it prompted and asked for a new account, I entered the credentials for the same account and then rebooted
    6. Once it rebooted I went to the Market, accepted the EULA and downloaded Google Gesture (I wanted to try a free app first) without any issues!

    FYI - the account I deleted was fine, there were no issues in how it showed up but deleted it anyway.

    I hope this helps people out! Good luck!

    Thanks it works
    what i did was remove the account reboot my phone
    add the account then reboot the phone again and it worked
