    Unable to update or download apps through Google Play on Samsung Galaxy Ace

    Each time I try to update or download apps through Google Play on my Samsung Galaxy Ace, it says “waiting for Network” and then try to connect to the Wi-Fi network. But, it is possible to download via Wi-Fi as it is not specified in the settings. What should I do to resolve this issue?

    Please make sure that your WiFi connection is working properly. Open the application drawer and select the option as Settings and then open Applications you will find an option to go to All applications select that and open then Google play store application and clear cache and data. Please note that clearing that would make all your search history and list of applications disappear in the Google Play application. The application however will detect them later. After that reboot your phone and try downloading the applications.
    Hope this Helps.

    It is because the Network connection you are trying to connect is not stable. Looks like the problem is associated with the Internet connection so try the following changes and see whether the problem is resolved .

    1) Unplug all the cables of the Router and Reconnect it after 3 Minutes. After that switch on the Modem and Router.
    2) Now Access the path Settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> Choose Google PLAY -->and delete all the data associated with it.
    3) Configure the Play Store Application from Scratch and start connecting surely it will work This time.

    >> To Download from Google Play Store is you need fast internet connection or Fast and stable wifi conncetion.

    >> You getting error like waiting for network because of your network is not stable for internet connection.

    >> So get the sim card that has stable network.

    hello friend You are getting in wrong way so applications are not downloading from google play store.Google play store works well on fully network efficiency.You should choose that simcard which is providing band of 900/1800 frequency well.After installing a good network into phone,you will be able to download applications.before downloading any application you should have big space in memory to eliminate low memory problem.all the best

    I think you can try with update in slow internet connection.
    So, i give only single suggestion...
    you trying to connect your mobile with PC.
    And connect your PC with internet.
    And use Ethernet connection for this purpose.
    So, you get good speed at downloading time.

    I hope by taking action, to follow above instruction.
    You surly fix your mobile update problem.

    Thanks

    My dear friend.

    Sometimes it happens.

    Follow the steps below:-

    --> Make sure you have a working internet connection.

    --> If not then carefully connect to wifi.

    --> After then go to Google Play Store.

    --> Make sure you have logged into your Google Account.

    --> Search for desired apps.

    --> Download and install them.

    --> I hope this would work.

    --> If still it persists then reset your device by opening settings and then going to Backup & Reset.


    I hope this will be helpful.

    Regards
    tanveersandhu.
