Have been hunting for a solution to this but couldn't find one...
My wifes old phone packed in so bought a Huawei X5 from The Warehouse last night to bring her into the 21st centry with an Android phone. Seems a great phone for $399! Ive got a HTC Desire (bought a while ago for much more than 399) and the Huawei is just as good I'd say -well almost as good but for....
We seem to have one problem with it after setting it up. Applications do not want to download from the Market Place. You can browse/search the market place, set the app to download and it all looks like its going to work as intended (i.e. added to a download list) but it just gets stuck there with the download percentage bar sat at 0%
Reset the phone to factory defaults etc and set it up again but same symptoms exactly. Everything else seems to work eg it even identified that the Facebook app should be updated.
I dont have the phone to hand so cannot provide current versions etc, but its a vanilla unmodified X5 (I remember its running Android 2.2.1 but no other OS versions spring to mind).
Its connected to our home wifi - browses the internet fine etc (so don't believe this to be an issue).
We did add a MicroSD card (4GB) that it sees fine but nothing on it. Was freshly formatted (Fat32) etc.
And I guess the only other thing that may be factor was that I also moved our domain to Google Apps last night and my wife is using that account to sync with (i.e its the primary account on the phone). But its brought down all the contacts we had set up fine.
This thread was a similar problem (different phone), however, haven't been able to get the downloads to kick off at all: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=97&topicid=87450
Any ideas anyone? Do I take it back to the big red shed and ask for another one?
Or do I just root the phone and find a good custom ROM to install :-) In all seriousness, I'd rather make sure we get the stock stuff working before going down that path - dont want to invalidate the warranty if this is a bung phone.
