    Hey, I have some trouble with my magic and I really hope somebody can help me! When I want to download a new app, it doesn't start the download. I also have the same problem with upgrading other apps I already have. Can somebody help me out with this?

    Are you trying to download over WiFi or 3G/Data?

    It can. 3G is using your wireless carrier's system, so if you don't have a good/strong (any) signal, you can have difficulty downloading.

    Unless someone else here knows a better immediate answer, I suggest you try doing the same thing using a WiFi connection instead of your 3G connection.

    If the downloads work using WiFi, try it once again using 3G. If you still have trouble via 3G, but not via WiFi, you will know that the problem is with your 3G connection.

    If you have the same problem using both 3G _and_ WiFi, then we have to look elsewhere for the problem.

    No problem. Sounds like it might have just been a bad 3G connection when you tried originally.
