    There are reports from many android phone users about such download failure incidents. Users are not able to download applications from the android market. The error will appear as “Download Unsuccessful”. The user needs to do the following to get this issue resolved. The user needs to selects the settings option from the main menu. Now in settings there will be an option called Applications and inside that Manage applications. There you will find Android market. In that you will have to clear the cache and then restart the android phone. Then the user needs to check the user settings for android market.

    Maintaining the Android device is more important in order to get maximum performance out of it. i advice you to clear all the caches and cookies from your Android Device.

    Go to Menu --> Settings --> Applications--> Manage Applications --> Choose the tab "All" , You will get "Android Keyboard" and "Android System", choose individually and clear the data associated with it.

    Check Available Memory:

    Check your Android device for remaining memory, sometimes when you have very low memory on the SD card or Internal, the apps wont work, You nee sufficient space to download and install Apps.

    All the Best.

    1. Check if your internet connection is working properly or not. If yes ok. If not change your operator or move to a place where your internet strength is strong or internet is working properly.
    2. Check if you have added you gmail account on your phone or not. If yes ok. If not add your account, to do so go to setting > account and sync and add your account.
    3. Check if you have sufficeient internal/phone memory or not. Use MOVE 2 SD app, download and insall it from PLAY STORE. Also clear all the cache.

    If nothing works RESET your phone but backup your data first.

    Dear Friend,

    I think your phone memory has not enough space for download such apps. So delete some apps which are not in use. Delete some ram memory from phone. You must sure that your phone memory has enough space to install such application.

    Regards,

    Re: I am not able to download apps from the android market. What should I do?

    If you have any issues with Play Store, clear its app data.

    To clear App Data,
    go to Setting--->Applications---> Manage Applications---> All Tab---> select play store and hit clear data.

    This will remove all the issues with play store.

    If it doesn't help try doing a factory data reset...

    Re: I am not able to download apps from the android market. What should I do?

    Hey Dear..

    Possible solution could be this.

    Try to check your internet settings first. If it is connected to the web, then download the apps and if not then contact with your service provider.

    Second option which you need to check that whether your Micro SD card is empty, if not then remove some data and then try to download.

    The last option if anything doesn't work, try to download the Android Market App from your PC web and then send it to your device.
    Now install the app, connect to the internet with proper settings and then try to download the apps from android market.

    You can even follow this you tube video as well if it help you:-

    If the problem still persist, then contact with your Service Center immediately.
    Thank You..

    Hi,friend





    you are not able to download apps from the android market,


    I think cache memory of play stored gets full.

    may be internet connection problem,


    Check if your internet connection is working properly or not.
    Also Check you have added you gmail account on your phone or not.
    also Check there are sufficeient internal/phone memory or not.


    also clear the cache memory...



    >> Press Menu button
    >> Tap on "Settings".
    >> Tap on "Applications" to open once done will see a new window.
    >> Then tap on "Manage Applications"
    >> And then open above an option as "ALL" appear.
    >> Hit that and then drag below there will find "Google Play Store".
    >> Tap to open that ,
    >> And then scroll down & tap on "Clear cache".


    after that restart your device,


    then your problem is solved.


    I hope you will understood,


    All the best.
