    Android Market: "Download of "----" was unsuccessful, please try again."

    I'm having trouble downloading any apps on Android Market. Every one that I've selected gives me the "Your Item Will Be Downloaded" message, and then a notification with an orange triangle with an exclamation point inside comes up saying, "Download of "(name of the app)" was unsuccessful, please try again." I try again, same message comes back.

    I've downloaded apps in the past with zero issues.

    I've tried powering off, and pulling the battery. Neither of those methods do anything to solve the problem. I'm relatively new to Android, so I'm wondering what else I can try.

    Thanks for any help!

    I've only had that issue with Pandora. I've installed plenty of apps, but pandora is the only one that wont install.

    Well, whatever it was, it's gone now. I didn't mess with it any more and just let it be. It's working just fine now.

    I was just having the same problem.. I tried clearing the market cache but still nothing.. I found that if I heald my droidx in my hand while it was downloading, it worked great but if I sat it down, it kept saying "Download unsuccessful".. My guess is that I was losing 3G signal when I wasnt holding it.. Dunno..

    Hey I finally installed pandora. I found that it was the custom themed pandora that was messing me up.

    I used root explorer and removed the apk then rebooted and it installed fine.
