    Will I be able to continue the app download happening on the android phone if I change the sim card on the phone?

    Would the app download complete itself if I change the sim card on my android phone from Samsung? Will the downloaded app install itself on the android phone?

    The download process will restart once the sim card is changed on the android phone. The major condition is that the new sim card should also have internet connection. The apps have to be downloaded for the android market. Once the download is given on the phone, the transfer will be initiated and will continue as long as it if not forced stop. The app can also be downloaded onto the Google account, and then can be transferred onto the phone as and when an internet connection is available on the phone. The download also be started with an wifi internet connection. The apps will get installed on the phone automatically once the download is completed.

    Yes,you can continue your downloading even after changing of SIM.But it is important that new SIM card has internet connection.
    Without internet connection you won't be able to download any app or do other things.It is important that you have Google Account.You can also download the apps on to Google Account & then can be transferred to your phone.You can directly download any app through your Computer if you have.

    The app downloading will stop once you take out your sim card.

    Then again when you put another sim it will ask you to login to your google account and that app wont be downloaded from where it stopped it will start again from begining.

    Once it gets stopped it doesnt download from where its left off.

    Yes after its downloaded it will install itself thanks.

    I would recommend you not to remove your sim while the phone is in on stage.

    Thanks

    Offcourse dear you can continue the app download happening on the android phone if I change the SIM card on the phone

    When you remove the old SIM card from the phone, the download will automatically stops as the Internet connection is not available which is provided by the service operators. Now when you insert the new SIM card, you have to first make sure that the internet connection package is activated on your New SIM. Then you have to go to the browser and under downloads you can resume downloads for the app which was stopped.

    Yes, you will be able to continue the app download happening on the android phone if you change the sim card on the phone.
    But you must be sure that the new Sim card must have internet connection.
    From Google account & android market, you can able to download the apps.
    When internet connection is available & when the app is not forcefully stopped the app will continue to download.

    Hi Friend,

    Nothing to do with the SIM card to download a App, If you are in progress in downloading the app and you are going to remove the SIM, Your download will cancel.
    After inserting the New SIM you need to download from scratch. For any app download the SIM should have Internet enabled.

    Thank You
