    In Market, the update for this app is stalled. It shows is downloaded but won't install. If you try to cancel it forecloses Market. I tried reboot and battery pull but once I go back to Market there it is again stalled. Any suggestions? I'm not rooted. Thanks.

    Absolutely. Settings/applications/manage applications/all applications/Market. Clear out the cache and the data. I repeat, cache and data. Not just the cache.;)

    Let us know how that worked for you.

    If Hook's suggestion doesn't work (which it probably will) lol, Then you should go to the market and press and HOLD the application that is downloading or updating and you will get a pop-up that will allow you to cancel the download and try again. I had the same thing happen to me and that is what fixed it. Good luck and I'm sure both of the solutions should work for you. Let us know how what happens.

    I had tried the long hold but Market would foreclose every time
    I canceled. Clearing the data did the trick. Thanks again.

    The problems with having a phone that can do all this is the fact that it requires a little more maintenance. It's good idea to wipe your Market data every couple of weeks. :)

    I agree with the "phone that can do all this" statement.

    I tried downloading a zip from a website from my phone not too long ago. It got stuck in a download. First it would have taken an hour or longer to DL so I decided I didn't wanna go that route, so I tried stopping it, nothing. Restarted phone and as soon as it booted it started downloading again. So I went to the market and grabbed a free app and started the DL and the other one went away. Go figure.
