    I factory reset my phone yesterday and trying to download my apps turned out to be a pain. All my downloads were stuck at "starting download"and I was trying every thing possible to get them to download! This happened a few times even before I reset my phone.

    I was also at the verizon store today and almost all the androids I played with got stuck as well. It was so bad that I couldn't even download 1 app on the 2 droid x's I used. The others eventually worked after a while but not the dx.

    So what's up? Im currently stuck on a download as I write

    Try clicking on them, cancel download, then try again. I usually find that once they get stuck, they're not going to fix themselves.

    Also, i usually dont download more than 2 or 3 apps at the same time for this same reason.

    I tried canceling the download and re trying the download but it didn't work. Neither on my phone or the droid x's. It was only one app I was trying to download. I think this has been a known issue for a while actually because of some of the comments ive seen online...

    Sadly enough, downloading on WiFi seems to fail 2 out of 3 times on my Evo. Hell, on my Hero I couldn't download anything off WiFi if it was through the Market. Same thing on my Moment.

    I have no idea why, but the Android market really hates wifi. :eek:
