    I installed an app yesterday, (appbrain web downloader) but couldn't get appbrain app to download, so I uninstalled the appbrain web app. Today I tried to update a couple apps, and niether would update- either I got a message that said download paused, with no way to re start, our it would just show it as downloading, but not making any progress. I tried to install another app off the market, just to see, and out wouldn't install either....

    Clearing market updater
    Rebooting phone
    Removing battery and re starting phone
    going to titanium backup and wiping market data

    Any other suggestions?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    From what I'm reading on other sites, the Market is having problems. You may want to give it some time and try again later.

    I haven't been able to download or update any apps for at least 2 weeks.

    It's a joke - an Iphone is looking more and more attractive.

    First, if you're willing to jump ship just because of this, then go right ahead. The android system is so much more than apps.

    Second, the market was down for a day and intermittent for a couple weeks. However, I haven't had a problem with it since last thursday. That being the case, you may (and probably do) have something else going on with your phone.

    If you are rooted, let us know what phone you have, what kernel you are running, the ROM, themes, etc.

    If you are not rooted, maybe try contacting your carrier. There may be a problem with their service or they may be able to help fix your phone.

    All in all, I personally would never jump from Android to iOS just because of apps and the market. Then again, that is just me.

    I was having the same problem for the last few dyas. Market place wasnt downloading anything, i made a thread about it and one guy replied lol. Anyway, fixing it for me was as simple as going into the market place help section. All i had to do is sign into Google talk.

    I am desperate need of help....I have the LG Ally and I rooted it just to get rid of some of the factory apps. Well apparently gtalk is very important cause now phone won't download anything from the market. I tried facyory reset and have found lnks with some ways to possibly fix the problem but I don't understand it. Which just goes to show I should have left well enough alone. Can someone put in dummy terms so I can figure out how to return my phone to normal.
