    Hi there,

    Im a newbie to the Android world and HTC Desire's.

    I got mine on Monday and am very happy with it apart from that when I am at
    work and using the WiFi here, I cant download any apps.
    They just sit there and says starting download.

    I then turn off the WiFi and put on Data Connection and they still dont download.

    But when I go home and am connected to my WiFi, it all seems to work.

    I have read about the problem with googlemail and gmail but I have always had a gmail
    account so dont know what it could be.

    Maybe your provider has applied a content lock which is preventing you downloading from the market using your data connection. I seem to remember that there was on mine on T-Mobile when I first got my phone. If so you need to phone them to get it taken off (or it can be done online using a credit card number to prove you are over 18)

    If it works on your home wifi then this is pointless - it's not your phone that's at fault but the connection. The problem at work maybe a firewall, the 3g connection solution may be the one mentioned above.
