    The only thing I can think of is for some reason the bank that handles that prepaid card has decided not to allow transactions. I doubt it's Google.

    Afraid you're going to have to break out a real credit card and see if you get the same message. What message is it giving you anyway?

    It happened to me once when i was using a prepaid card. I switched to a standard CC and it works fine. (only drawback of most prepaid cards is no international purchasing)

    I've only really had that problem with prepaid when trying to make an international purchase. The first CC I had on there allowed international purchases, the next one did not.

    Is this issue just with one specific application, or any paid app from Google's Android Market? Sometimes I have read that the market will accept only bank issued credit cards, because they are having problems with prepaid/gift cards with visa/mastercard logo. Not any help on your issue I know, but be aware that the market is trying to phase out the use of non bank issued cards

    i know this has been reiterated already, but what most likely happened is your Credit Card redflagged one of your recent purchases (maybe from gameloft)... and they froze your acct to prevent "Fraud"...

    you will need to contact them when your holiday is over to settle it. it has happened to me before when i tried to purchase something from China
