    Hi All,
    After hard resetting my phone to factory defaults i have not been able to download apps from android market. When i try and download them i get the "download was unsuccessful" message :(

    Yes i have searched, many forums and google and have tried:
    -soft reset
    - hard reset
    -format sd card
    - remove sd card (use no card)
    - clear market/download manager cache
    - use wifi

    i still cannot get it to download. This is extremely frustrating, and now im left with an appless phone (well apart from the standard apps). Does anyone know how i can fix this? its driving me insane.

    Cheers

    I had the same issue. Only solution was to do a fresh install with RUU.

    Also have you tried logging in to the market from a PC and downloading an app from there?
    That should tell you if your phone is linked to the market?
