I am accessing an Android market and trying to download Free applications, when i have tried to download any application by clicking on "Install" button.

When i click on "Download" button, it always shows the downloading application with the message : "Starting Download", i am seeing this message since last 2 hours, but application is not getting donwload to my phone.

Whats the problem ?

  • @Bryan Denny that answer was regarding Cancel the download, whereas i want to donwload the applications but remain unsuccessful in downloading applications Commented Oct 4, 2010 at 15:50
  • That's the catch. You have to cancel the download then try to run the update again. See if that resolves your problem.

  • Did you successfully cancel the download, had it disappear from the "starting download" list, and start it all over again?
