    Anyone experiencing slow market downloads recently? My phone has always been pretty quick, but recently downloading an app from the market can take minutes instead of seconds.

    I know it's hard to troubleshoot being that everyone's phone is different, but here's what i'm running:

    official 2.1 update
    astro file manager
    launcher pro

    those are the only 2 apps that i've added recently. everything else has been on my phone since the beginning of time.

    could either of the apps above slow down market downloads?

    I have noticed that lately, too. In my case, my phone service keeps cutting out (I will have several bars and the EV one minute and the next minute 1x), so I assumed that was why.

    Yeah I noticed it today. Thought maybe I was having data lock issues again.

    Well mine isn't slow....
    every now and then is plain never downloads.
    i wait and wait it says connecting or waiting or some crap.
    but if i reboot the phone before the phone is fully restarted the download or downloads are all finished.
    i don't get it.
