    There have been some threads about the Market in general. You've gotten the same error message they've gotten. Yesterday I had the Market reboot several times after pressing the Download button. Today there were two updates which worked fine.

    In other words, you're not alone on this. There does seem to be an problem with the Market.

    Hold up. If you're trying to purchase something that's in foreign currency or if you're using a prepaid card and it's a foreign purchase that could be the hang up. Some banks won't let you purchase outside of the US (assuming you are in the US) and prepaid cards just don't work period.

    I disagree on the prepaid cards. I have one through netspend.com (or ACE Cash Express) that works without a problem anywhere online including google checkout.

    I'm talking about using prepaid cards to purchase apps that have foreign currency. I never had one myself but this has been discussed many times in this forum. I'm quite positive if you buy one at Walmart and try to use it on something with British pounds it wont work.

    maybe not the walmart variety then but mine has let me buy from China in Yen, Canada in Canadian Dollars, Australia in Australian Dollars, all over Europe in both Euros and Pounds. I've purchased apps in both Yen and Euros through the market.

    I haven't found any international restrictions with it yet. Maybe it's a different species of prepaid card, it's the reloadable variety if that matters.
