I can't download any apps from the Google Play Store. I have tried everything but it doesn't work. The download says "paused" on the notifications bar for ever and I can't get it to start.


I couldn't get Play to connect at all and i found out that the time setting on my device was incorrect, so i set the time correctly and it connected straight away. Ensure that the time and date is correct on your device.


Make sure you are connected to the internet

Restart your phone and then try again

Otherwise clear the cache for the Play Store in The Applications settings.


Clear all cookies and cache from settings->apps -> all running apps -> open the app -> click on clear data.
