    Cannot Re-download an app that I deleted.

    Good afternoon. I'm hoping that someone can help me here.

    I deleted a program called Battery Life when I got a new battery, hoping to avoid problems. It seemed to have issues during the uninstall, but eventually I was able to remove it from my phone.

    Now though, I want to download the program again, and I can't seem to do it. When I go to the program on the Market, there are two options that are grayed out (uninstall and open). It appears that for some reason, the market/phone is not reading it as uninstalled, even though I can't seem to find traces of it on my Droid. I would really like to have this program back. I've emailed the company and Google, but neither have responded.

    Any idea of what I can do to get the program back?

    Haven't tried Astro let. Good idea!

    Let me give that a shot

    Edit: Hmm, I have never really used Astro before. Where are programs usually kept? I can't seem to locate anything I've downloaded...

    I just noticed that you said you "deleted" the program. How did you actually accomplish this? Did you uninstall it or delete it? That may give us a clue how to help.

    i just found this information thru google.....
    Go to menu, applications, manage applications, open Market app, and select uninstall Market updates. When you start the Market app again you have again accept the terms and it starts clean. Then you can reinstall apps that have trouble or delete through the Market Download area. This technique reopens the options to install a grayed lower menu on the detail area of an app.

    Great find Ccakes. I've read a number of threads about this issue, both here and on other boards, and that's cleanest fix I've seen. Google, huh? Who knew.

    Thanks for the info. I think I'm either doing something wrong, or the phone will not allow me to delete the updates. There isn't an uninstall or delete option.

    To answer the other question, I uninstalled the program...but all traces of it appear to be gone.
