    Default Help?! My Samsung Galaxy S will not let me download apps!

    Hello, I'm new to this site but my phone has been making me frustrated so I found this site in willing to get help.

    My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S.

    Since I got it I've been trying to get free apps from the Google Play store but every time I try to get an app it says "Package file is invalid."

    I have Gmail already on my phone and it works perfectly, but every time I try to do updates it says the same thing.

    Any help?

    Remove your Google Account and re-log in. See if that helps. Also try deleting the Play Store updates/cache form the device by going into Menu > Settiings > Apps > Play Store

    I had a similar problem to yours, but i had a Samsung Galaxy S Plus and the thing i did was clearing my cache and then it worked.
    But as i read the other posts it doesnt seem to help you.

    Just enter "Market" and it should automaticly ask about it or update to Google Play. It did for me when i had "Market" Try that.

    You can download any app that's compatible with the phone. You can't download apps that aren't compatible with the phone. NO one can change that. (Even if you managed to download a Kit Kat app and tried to install it, it either wouldn't install [usually a parse error] or it wouldn't work once it was installed.)
