Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Download from the Android Market via mobile data plan paused?

In case you are trying to download applications from the Android market through your carrier's data plan and it gets paused, If you haven't already done so, try the following steps:
1) Go to 'Menu > Settings > Data manager > Data saver', and make sure that the 'Enable data saver' checkbox is unchecked.
2) Press the back button once, and, then, tap 'Data delivery', and make sure both 'All mobile data' and 'Background data' checkboxes are checked.
3) On that same settings page, click on 'Blur applications', and make sure that 'Sync over Wi-Fi only' is unchecked;
4) Press the back button 4 times to return to the home page you were in, prior to start changing these settings;
5) You can play with these settings (as well as other ones around there) the way which better suits your needs, at any given moment.

Of course you can also activate your phone's Wi-Fi feature, connect to your home or any other Wi-Fi network, and download the applications you want this way.

Really hope these simple tips might work for you, somehow.


Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.

Best regards,Carlos

cant download apps on android market


You see, I posted these tips about downloading applications through our carrier's data plan. If this is your case, take a look at them. Anyway, in case you keep being unable to downaload applications, try to make sure the market application is not running, either by resetting your phone (press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, until a context menu comes up, and select 'Power off'', and, then, after your phone is powered off, press and hold the power button again, to turn it on), or simply killing the market application process (from any of the home screens, go to 'Start > Task manager'. Wait a while for the applications list to be updated, tap over the 'Market' application, and select 'End application'). Either way, run the market application again.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon.

Anyway, please, let me know if I can assist you any further.

show download is queued and download has paused


In case you are trying to download applications from the Android market through your carrier's data plan, If you haven't already done so, go to 'Menu > Settings > Data manager > Data saver', and make sure that the 'Enable data saver' checkbox is unchecked. Then, press the back button, and 'Data delivery', and check both 'All mobile data' and 'Background data' checkboxes are checked. On that same settings page, click on 'Blur applications', and make sure that 'Sync over Wi-Fi only' is unchecked. Press the back button 4 times to return to the home page you were in, prior to start changing these settings. Of course you can play with these settings (as well as other ones around) the ways which better suit your needs, at any given moment.

Of course you can also activate your phone's Wi-Fi network and download the applications you want through your home's wireless network (if it is present there, that is).

Hope these instructions might work for you, somehow.
