    Default Market - not installed?

    Market version 3.1.5. I think it's the newest. Everything is "working" fine. I update/install apps routinely.

    However, at the bottom of the list of apps in the Market, I have two apps that say uninstalled. Both are VZW apps. Both are installed (came with the phone), and the only choice is to [open]. No install or update choice.

    Google Search
    VZW Navigator

    I use Google Search (including the default TBolt widget) but not VZW Navigator. Although, both are listed in my apps drawer.

    I have cleared the Market cache, force closed and retried, same thing. I have not cleared the Market data. Did that once and it took me a while to recover my listings

    What does this indicate?

    It indicates that we both have the same issue. I'm sure we're not alone.

    On mine I still have Google Search installed, but I see VZW Navigator is now "VZ Navigator for Thunderbolt."

    Is it possible that during the upgrade process that these two apps that are showing up as uninstalled somehow uninstalled properly when they were being replaced?

    I have no actual advice or knowledge on this. Just trying to get the gears working.

    Cool Re: Market - not installed?

    Have same scenario. Noticed it this morning. I use google search and it works, when I hit open in market it opened with my last search item listed below search box. Do not use VZW Nav.

    I've been having the same problem. Sorry Frank, I
    had to clear data on the market and relaunch for things to return to "normal". Damn, I wish Google would fix this!

    I've had this happen. Try going into Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Market. Clear your cache and also your data, force stop the Market, then get to your home screen or apps list and run the Market again. Agree to the terms, and you should be back in business with a correct apps list.

    Thanks all.

    Clearing data worked. And this time it recovered from that nicely, unlike last time under Froyo and an older version of the Market.

    Thanks; I've been having trouble with the market latching on to an alternate google account (for which I have never purchased any apps). I followed the tip from ALCingularUser and am really hoping I won't be plagued anymore with having to change account.s


    Argh! 2 minutes later - just opened Market & the account is my other google account, not my main one. I can't figure out what is the matter with this idiocy.

    Since the GB update, I've also noticed some strange behavior by the Market (version 3.1.5). Besides listing bloatware apps at the bottom, a couple days ago, it decided to automatically update four of those apps (TuneWiki, Google Books, My Verizon, and Google Search) without any intervention on my part, despite the fact I had already turned off "Allow automatic updating" on everything!

    I just went in and cleared the cache and data and now only TuneWiki shows at the bottom under "Not installed", but there are four (Blockbuster 2.4 for HTC, Rhapsody, V Cast Music, Verizon Video) now showing at the top under "Manual Updates", all of which I've NEVER downloaded or used before. The kicker, while I'm typing this, it decides again to auto update TuneWiki and Google Books without prompting me! Strange...

    It updated the same apps on me without permission. I've never used any of them. The market itself also updated itself without my permission. I liked the old froyo market better. This business of secondary account opening for no reason is more than just a minor annoyance. I doubt HTC or vzw are even aware of it and I don't relish the idea of trying to explain it to a "technician" who simply assumes I don't know what I'm talking about. I've had enough of that.

    Yes, all of those updated on mine too. Fine with me. But the two I mentioned in the first post in this thread wouldn't update, they just kept sitting at the bottom of the list without an update choice. But, as I mentioned, clearing the data fixed that issue.

    Whenever I see a VZW app ready for update, or appear at the bottom with an update choice, I just go ahead and update it. Why pick a battle you can't win (without rooting). But when those two got "stuck", I wanted to do something about it.

    Tunewiki just updated again on mine. No idea why. No input from me. I don't even know what tunewiki is! I listen to sports on my tb - never music.

    I got two back-to-back Tunewiki updates too. I assumed it was an update to fix the update. It happens. Or, a hiccup in the Market. But it's easy enough to let it run through, no big deal.

    Well I'm pretty pissed about it. No excuse that tunewiki and verizon navigator, two crap apps that i have no use for automatically update themselves and take up memory. tune wiki nearly triples the amount of storage space w/its update and verizon navigator nearly doubles. this is the kind of crap that makes me sorely consider rooting my phone even more than the garbage already installed on the phone such as the blockbuster and cityid apps that I can't get rid of.

    I want Verizon and HTC to be blocked from putting crap apps on my phone which I cannot uninstall. They have my permission to put as much garbage as they think they can sell to me on the phone prior to purchase as long as I have the ability to remove it, it is after all supposed to be my phone.

    Good question. Mine does that too, but I've only noticed it on apps that I've purchased but are no longer installed on that device.
