    I'm getting a little tired of seeing that the 'Where' app is still asking to be updated in the market even though I removed it from my phone.

    Ideas on how to stop?

    this happened to me, even worse actually. I installed an app and didnt want it, so i uninstalled and refunded... Later that day I realized I DID want it, but it said it was still installed so I couldnt pay and download it again? So odd? I didnt know how to fix it at the time so I did a clean system wipe... sux

    yes, I even searched the system for the word 'where' and no traces. I wonder if it's dug in like an Alabama tick ;)

    bump in the hopes someone see this and knows the fix. All I can assume at this point is the issue is likely with my market account.

    Try going Menu...Settings...Applications...ApplicationSettings...Filter...Downloaded

    Then see if there is anything with even a hint of"Where" in the title. Not positive but I believe that this is where market update info is kept and there could be little where-nuggets hiding and reporting from there.

    Nope, as stated previously I figured a fulltext search for 'where' via Astro would have given the biggest clue in that regard.

    bump again, hopefully someone very intimate with the internal workings of the Market and Android OS can provide some insight.

    final bump to say that a recovery mode factory reset and cache wipe fixed this issue

    Also fixed a lot more, namely speed and app issues I've had no doubt as a result of doing manual upgrades from 2.0 and 2.01. Stock phone runs like a dream after the factory reset and app reinstalls. Highly recommended, takes about 1 hr to get everything reinstalled/configured.
