Download failed in Andriod Market

Hi all,

The last couple of days I have been unable to download anything from the marketplace. It is also impossible to update the apps I already downloaded.

I can open and start the download, but after a few minutes the phone reports that the download failed.

Any suggestions for solving this problem?

Thanx!

Re: Download failed in Andriod Market

It must be a problem with your connection. Try inserting a sim of another connection which has high speed internet (or whatever) enabled, change APNs and see if that does the trick. If yes, then you need to talk to your mobile operator.

Re: Download failed in Andriod Market

if u are using a wifi connection then sumtimes it disconnects without u realising so try checking that first, if its still connected try disconnecting then reconnect and see if that helps

Re: Download failed in Andriod Market

When you say you have removed updates I take it you mean you have removed them from here

Settings > Applications > Manage applications >Market > tap on "Uninstall updates".

If you have does your internet connection still work properly, can you access the web OK.
