    Hello, i buyed about 10 new games today, but when i want to download more, this message pops up:

    Error downloading "the game". There is insufficient space on the device.
    (have also tried app2sd but still the same message)

    Why do i get this message when i have this much free space?

    phone memory: 900 MB (1.5gb)
    internal memory: 4.39 GB (8gb)
    External memory: 9.82 GB (32gb)

    My phone: LG optimus 2X (android 2.3.4)

    Is there really an limit of how many apps my phone can have installed?
    (got 69 apps installed)

    Push your menu button. Then Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All tab > Scroll to and tap Market > clear data.

    Then try again.

    No, it just clears the cache and settings. You wont lose anything.

    It also forces the app to shut down. Just an overall reset of the program.
