    Hi Received my new Desire today, great piece of kit (a lot slimmer than I thought it would be). Great phone. Question though, how do I connect to the google marketplace? I click the widget and then get prompted to enter my details, which I do but when I press the Enter (return) key after the password nothing happens?? What am I doing wrong? Cheers

    I've tried it with both (ie Wifi on then turning it off and using 3G). I enter my google id then the password but then thats when nothing happens, i press enter (return) after enter the password but nothing happens, not even an error message.

    I synced the phone to my yahoo email address, maybe I needed to do it to google mail?? Will that knock off the yahoo address? I only use yahoo not google mail.

    I have a google account, but don't use it, had it for years. So when I clicked the google market place wedget it prompted me to enter my id and password (which i did) but nothing happens after entering the password. Should i synch the phone to my google mail account rather than yahoo??

    If I click the google app it shows my email in my google mail account. Very strange. I go through the google mail Id set up an (ie Sign in with your google account) yet nothing happens. Should i make up a new account and see what happens? Will that **** up my current account? I'd rather stay with my same nameID I have a google.com account rather than gmail does that matter??

    If you can see your mail, then should be OK.

    Market uses your google ID and talk app also has an effect.

    Have you change from googlemail to gmail since setting the phone up? If so, either change back, or you need to factory reset (loose data) and set up again with your new gmail ID

    Fine here. How about if using your mobile network? Could be an ISP issue

    Have you created a new account on your pc?

    If you haven't done anything on hte phone yet then do a hard reset, and enter your google email (your original one) during the phone setup.

    Thanks Lekky, once i'd sobered up I reset the phone and used my google account when prompted, worked a charm. Cheers
