Market won't update to Google Play

My Rhyme is still stuck in the old green and white market, and won't update to anything newer.  I waited around for a little bit hoping that I would get it soon, but all of my other apps updated such as Play Music, Play Movies and Play Books.  I'm just stuck with the old old market.  Any suggestions?

Clear Cache is grayed out and not an option to select.  it says 0.0 Bytes.  The only available options are Force Stop and Clear Data.

I would suggest pressing the "Clear data" button and the "Uninstall Updates" button if available.  This will force you to accept the terms again, but it should force the app to update to the latest version.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

the thread that wildman linked has a post with the QR code (or whatever those things are called). you can use barcode scanner or any other qr scanner app to easily update it.

You rock Wildman!  I have been searching for months trying to figure out why my market wasn't updating and finally stumbled upon this thread today.  My market is now Google Play!
