    So today I was reading on the forums and wanted to try the Ultra Keyboard which people seem to like so I bought it and it says purchased next to the app in the market, but when I go and push install it says my item will be downloaded yet it does not download at all. Any ideas??

    Go into your phone's settings/applications/manage applications/all - find Market in the list, clear data/cache and try again - it should work now

    Make sure you are looking in the "All" or "Running" list and not the "Downloads" one

    Sometimes it just takes awhile, but clearing out the cache and data will force it to recheck again. Sometimes just going into the market and clicking on Settings > Downloads and allowing it to refresh will enable it to download to.

    If that doesn't work try rebooting and go back into the market downloads area.

    When items won't Download from the Market, go into your apps and open Google talk and make sure you're logged in. Then it SHOULD work fine after that.

    Sometimes when i DL an app it downloads but hangs in the install process. That i usually stop and re-install.

    Hope this helps

    Double check that you are not set for WIFI only. Go to email settings, and make sure that you sync over WIFI is not checked.

    This does affect the MARKET function also.

    Just cancel and keep retrying. It will come eventually. You are just another casuality of the market wars

    The download unsuccessful is usually a market data/cache issue so I would clear both again and then reboot the phone for good measure and try the market once more. Make sure you have connectivity, either 3G or wifi, browse to a web site or something first.

    You could also do a battery pull, can't hurt.

    In addition to clearing the market data, clear the data and cache of Download manager too. This happens to me all the time and that always fixes it. You just have to accept the market terms again.
