Where did tetris for android go?
I can see it on the market and it says purchased in my webbrowser but when i go to the market on my phone it is gone and it is not listed in my installed apps nor is it listed in my settings-applications either.

i'm actually kindof a tetris nerd and i prefer the real version with the TTC rules. and whoah read the comments on the game apparently i'm not the only person that cannot find the game in the market nor re-download it!

Mine disappeared completely from my phone. I went to market.android.com and found it in my list of purchases. I went to click on it to install and it says "Not available on your carrier" (Verizon) but it is available to my Alltel phone.
Something fishy going on.

Unable to re-download purchased EA Games apps from Android Market when I replaced damaged phone - Android Market Help
It's apparently some kind of Market/EA issue. Some people bought for 99 cents. I bought mine at 2.99. I still The Sims on my phone but Tetris went bye bye. I think it has to do with the way EA has listed it in the market at their latest price which cuts off people who bought it when it was on sale.

I fired up my Alltel phone and the only EA games on the market there are The Sims and Fifa. Tetris and Monopoly not available.
Went to Market online and looked up "Worms". Tried to buy it. Not available on my carrier... Who knows where the real issue is at this point.

Having the same problem here. Performed a hard reset to clear up some lingering DX issues and I'm unable to DL any of the EA games I bought on sale other than the Sims. I seem to recall hearing about Gameloft doing something this a while back for the one title they sell in the Market. I think they changed the name of the game slightly or their publisher name and locked out anyone who bought it early from being able to redownload it or receive any updates. Google REALLY needs to police the Market more closely and clobber these crooks when they try this sort of stuff.
Years ago, way back in the old Palm OS days, I kept a list of the titles I had purchased that had been abandoned in an unreasonable amount of time or whose publishers refused to let you have a new Device ID or change to a new Hotsync ID. I periodically thanked developers such as SplashData and Astraware that went the extra mile to offer support after the sale, especially for registration/update/installation issues. Sad to say that I may have to revive my old "publisher blacklist" for Android devs :-(

Titanium backup wont work. When you fire up the app it tells you your device isnt authorized. At least thats what happened to me. Instead I have flagged it twice in the market explaining the issue and hoping that Google will get it fixed.

it appears that there are at least 2 versions of tetris i'm guessing that EA just doesn't understand the android market and keeps re-naming their app?
also can anyone else not login when they hit contact us http://support.eamobile.com/ i even registered a new ea account!
