My friend just got a htc inspire 4g and he can't install apps that aren't from the market.
I don't think it's an htc problem. As I have a moto Droid and it does the same to me and alot of others iv talked to. I'm pretty sure its a market problem.
Moto Droid / S.S. 5.2
Does it have a setting to allow apps from secondary sources to be installed in the settings?

Under Settings, Applications, do you have Unknown sources checked? This enables you to install apk files from any source.

You do know that AT&t prevents installation of non market apps right?

What idk att did that and I went to settings then application it should be the first one there my moto droid 2 has it I guess its the carrier.
OP You have to side load apps.
What's side load?
Honestly I'm not familiar with inspire.
Thanks but I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to root it he just got it and is new to android
^Not sure if you can side load without root on inspire. You might be able to adb push but if he's willing to do that he might as well go all the way & root it.
Another fine example of someone's first *open experience....unless he's a Linux guy.
I'd switch carriers if I were your friend. ATT is my least favorite out of the big four carriers. Verizon > all imo.

Yea att is the least of my favorites that's why I have verizon , but he's new and I hate explaining things to other people.
Well those are his options for now. Give this a look over or maybe show it to him. It's very simple on the Inspire 4G; everything is done for you. (NEW IMPROVED 04-21-2011) HTC Inspire/DHD Hack Kit V10 - xda-developers
