- Was working when first got upgrade now says "You must add an account to the device continue. Do you want to add one now?" Yes or No. Click Yes and does nothing...
I feel your pain; I browse and download applications from the Android Market continuously and I'd be frustrated if I was not able to access it. This sounds like an authentication issue. Make sure you've cleared the cache and data of both the Market app and the Download manager. Here's how:
I have tried this and about everything else to fix my issue with my apps. It all started after doing a factory reset after receiving new SIM card I cannot access the My apps section of Android Market. If I uninstall my updates to market it tells me I have a connection issue after the update it just defaults to a blank screen which is the default if you dont have anything installed.
It shows my Google Account in the grey bar in the middle of the screen. I have even created a seperate account, that one shows all the default apps on my phone, so I know it has to be something not allowing that one account to connect to the Google Server. I am on my 2nd replacement or my third phone in general. I would assume having them try to do something like that with the os would void my warranty. I can switch between the 2 I see apps for the new one but not my old account.
This issue has been going on for six weeks with my apps in market. It is a known issue and is being addressed by Google, albeit slow progress. Many people have this problem with a multitude of Android devices, it is not specific to the Bionic by any means!
May I suggest using appbrain available on the market? It is a work around, but has been working for me so I can see my apps and check if any updates are needed.
I have been using app brain and Amazon market place both, but it doesn't always give you the updates for all applications, and Amazon requires Wifi a lot. When I troubleshooted the issue with Google they blamed it on Verizon sending me another SIM card, that it through off the connection authentication. I know this isn't the problem and it a connection issue on Google's side, but the Service provider, the phone manufacture, and the OS supplier, need to get together and put a fix on this, not just sit back and blame each other.
