    If you got the error message while downloading a paid application, then you will have to ensure that the credit card information given is correct by signing on to your Google Wallet Account. If it is up to date, then you will have to clear the cache of the Google Play Store by navigating to Settings and then choosing the option denoted as Applications. Under Applications, you will have to click on the option denoted as ‘Clear Cache’. The restart the android phone and then try downloading the app again. If still the issue is not fixed, you will then have to ensure that they are connected to a wireless or cellular network on the device. Also ensure that there is enough space on the android phone for the app to be installed. Finally if nothing fixes the issue, you will have to remount the SD card.

    Hello ,
    downloading apps from Google Play Store is easy and got least issues regarding downloads . If it shows Download Unsuccessful it means that your could be lacking memory to complete the download . Simply clear some your memory and make some space for the downloads . It can also happen that there could be network fluctuation in your area . Try to check that by changing your connection . Hope that helps . Thanks

    Well dear
    it has many various reason.
    -Low space on your device
    -The information you have given to buy app is incorrect
    -software damage in your device etc.
    If there is a software damage you should try restarting your device .
    Still have a problem then go for factory data reset or go to authorised service centre.
