    So I'd like to give Swiftkey X a try-- ah, nope, can't do that. I go to the Market, search and find what I'm looking for. The app's page in the Market has the "Accept & buy" button dimmed. So I click above it, "Select payment method." Um, I've bought from the market a ton of times before... and when I touch the "Select payment method" button, I get:
    VISA xxx-1234
    VISA xxx-1234 (same as above, odd)
    Add card
    But it won't ever let me choose either VISA xxx-1234 card, even though that's the right card... I'd hate to add it a THIRD time... so what's up Doc? Anyone else having this trouble?

    I usually have a battle in my head before posting here: "Make a new Android bug, or post to the forums?" Anyone got any guidelines there?

    Well, no one's given me any ideas, so no, no progress. On another thread I learned that Swiftkey X is DA BOMB, but I can't get to it until this funniness is resolved, so any help will be MUCH appreciated!

    SwiftkeyX is great and makes my life easier. No problems with market here, downloaded a few things today and made a purchase

    Do purchases go through on the web Market?

    Maybe delete your credit cards and then re-enter?

    Well that was funky-- I couldn't figure out how to delete cards, so I added back in my same card-- for the THIRD time-- and now there's three identical cards associated with my account, but I can only choose the one I just added. So strange. But it worked! Thanks for the assistance!

    Thanks for the pointer to the Google Dashboard! "OH RIGHT, that card expired!"
