    So, I've been having issues with my Droid X and downloads in the Market not starting, I've had to do a few data resets to fix the problem. I recently called Verizon complaining and they sent me out a replacement Droid X. The first app that I installed was Launcher Pro and then downloaded quite a few more apps. A few hours later I tried download more apps and they have again gotten stuck on "starting download". I called Verizon tech support and explained what was going on, he then proceeded to tell me that he can guarantee that Launcher Pro is the cause of the problems and that I need to delete it. He claims that it does not work properly with the X. I told him that I got an X on July 1 and did not have a problem with the Market until recently and he again said that LP is causing the problem. Has anyone else heard of this, it makes no sense at all.

    Have you tried removing it to test his suggestion? To prove him wrong?

    Yes, I uninstalled it with him on the phone and they still wouldn't start. I had to do a data reset and once I had it set back up apps would download again.

    Yea, the only way to really find out is by removing LPP and seeing if you can d/l apps that way. Personally, I have LPP and don't have this issue, so I have every reason to believe the tech is wrong. Maybe you downloaded a bad app that might be an issue.

    I always have issues with the market downloads. IMO it's the buggiest part about Android... you tell it to download but it'll just do it when it feels like it!!!
