Hey everyone.

how do I reinstall the Market app supplied with this phone, it just quit working.

I've pulled the battery and reset it that way but to no avail.

Hello smoothbluz,

I can imagine the inconvenience you have gone through with the Market. Did you notice the Market stopped after making any changes to the phone or downloading any apps?  I would suggest clearing the cache of the Market application.

Press Menu

Choose Settings

Choose Applications

Choose Manage Applications

Choose All

Choose Market

Clear cache and/or data

If the Market still fails to open, try running Safe Mode. This will stop programs from automatically starting in the background and will help determine if the problem is related to an app.  Here is a link with instructions to enable and disable Safe Mode. If the Market opens in Safe Mode the next step would be to start removing apps one by one to determine which is causing this problem. I would be more than happy to troubleshoot further, if needed. Please let me know if you need any additional assistance.

Thank You,

Hey  YaleK_VZW!

I saw that I had a software/firmware update pending and let that run.  When it

completed,

the Market app worked once more! 

I CERTAINLY appreciate your email to offer assistance.

Best,
