Android Market Download Fix

Some suggestions to fix problems downloading apps from Market on Android smart phones.

Numerous users of HTC, Motorola and Samsung Android phones have experienced trouble in downloading apps from Market. After choosing an app or just trying update existing, the download freezes at "Starting download..." phase what seems permanently. The following things might work, for me it was simply turning on WiFi

  1. Cancel all downloads (manually)
  2. Stop Market and Download manager apps from Settings ->Applications -> Manage applications
  3. Clear cache and Data for Market and Download manager
  4. Restart phone
  5. Turn on WiFi and see that you can connect to it
  6. Open Market and try again
