    Hi all
    Since last night (let's say about 36 hours) I haven't been able to download/update anything from the android market. Is just a problem with me or is the market down at the moment. Most frustrating. I really want to get a bookmark organiser. Can anyone recommend one? 'Bookmark Tree Manager' or 'GoTo Web' look good.
    Thx in advance, David
    :)

    Try this, it fixes some problems...

    Remove battery while the phone is Turned On

    Remove Sim card and SD card

    Wait 30 seconds

    Re-insert the sim, sd and battery

    Turn on phone and try again :)

    I was having install app problems until the other day. Somewhere on this board I read to uninstall the 'Android market updater' and I can now download stuff again.
