    Problems downloading from Market

    When I try to download from Android market, it just goes to "starting download" and never actually downloads the apps.

    Worked fine a couple of days ago and now nothing.

    Ok, I have had this problem on multiple Android phones. 90% of the time it happens when using wifi. Have you tried turning wifi on and off? How about just using data?

    I am having this issue right now as well. I'm always connected using data (3g) and my downloads were working just fine until it just randomly stopped cooperating. In the "My Downloads" section in the market, it shows the apps under "Currently downloading" as "Starting download..." and that progress never changes, nor do I see the active downloads appear in the notification bar like they normally would after pressing Install.

    I've only experienced this when trying to download on Wifi (I have another problem when downloading while on Edge but that's due to the crappy connection), and only after the update to 13.35.

    Did you get the limited release update to 13.35 awhile back when it was available?

    Negatory. Still running 1.5 and no updates are available.

    I've had this several times in the past. Normally after some random time minutes up to several days it will just start downloading my software. Last time I got tired of waiting just reflashed the phone and installed all software again been doing fine now.

    Yea I'm thinking about just resetting back to factory defaults anyway. Seems like swiping and loading menus takes longer than it should

    Seems like this issue persists even when using data only or wi-fi only.

    Does anyone know a solution without restoring the phone to factory defaults? I have had two apps stuck on "Starting download" for like the past 5 days. It does it on 3g and wifi.
