    Strange issue of my stock Nexus S. I get prompted to accept the new terms and service agreement for the Google Play store but the app never upgrades and I still have version 3.4.4 of the android market. I have cleared the data and cache for the market and can always get to the new terms of service but no upgrade. I do have the Google Play Music and Books and have tried to get the the play store through these apps but always get sent to the Market. I even did a factory reset since I don't have much on my phone yet. Any ideas on how to force the app to do the changeover.

    Thanks in advance.

    Delete the Market icon on your phone. The new icon's name is "Play Store". I thought I had this problem as well.

    Clear data and uninstall all updates via Settings-->Manage Apps

    Then restart and open the Market. It SHOULD tell you it's updating then. That's how I got mine to show up. The Market icon went away on its own.

    I cleared the data and unistalled all updates and then restarted. The phone updated the market and gave me the Google Play terms and service to agree to but I still have Android Market 3.4.4 and not Google Play 3.4.6. I do not even have a Google Play icon in my app drawer. Strange issue on this phone. My friend has the same phone and no problem on his and all that is running on this is stock programs.

    Same problem here as vg7702. Stock Nexus S. version2.3.6 I9020A. I did recieve the Play Books app that kept crashing until I downloaded a book from the Google play store(?) now it works, but my old market apps icon still shows when I am in the store and in my apps collection as well. I have also cleared all the data, rebooted etc. still no change, still shows as 3.4.4 hmmm strange. Any suggestions other than above?

    Try clearing data and uninstalling updates and the checkin trick then relaunch app. That's what finally got it to work for me.

    When I said "restart" I meant to say turn phone off then reboot. I don't know if that really makes a difference...but just unintalling updates and restarting the app didn't do anything for me. I actually turned it off, pulled the battery for a minute then restarted and it worked.

    I did turn the phone off and restart to no avail when I uninstalled the market updates. I have tried this now with the checkin command and still no dice. Maybe this update wasn't meant for me or will all be fixed once ICS finally drops.

    It updated for me on my previous oICS ROM and now isn't doing it on Pete's ROM.

    Gotta ask though...is the icon really bothering you that much? None of the functionality is any different.

    sooo, you're saying the change from 3.4.4 - 3.4.6 is just the icons?

    Yes. I don't see anything crazy in the update code.
    @Chud I can't get mine to update either on Pete's ROM. It shows me to accept but that's it.
    Not a big deal.

    :::Update::::: I cleared data, uninstalled updates. Then I rebooted.
    After a fresh reboot I clicked on the market. It brought me to accept or decline.
    I accepted. I closed out of the app. waited for a minute and checked my app drawer.
    Play Store was there.

    I tried to update by doing force close and clearing cache and uninstalling updates, it brought me back to market version 2.3.4. I can't access the music store through the market either. I tried reboot and also the checkin trick, nothing is working

    I've ran into a similar issue before. Just download an app or update one and let it install.l and exit the Market. After a little bit go back into it and you see this.

    Of course your font will be different.

    The update is for ICS devices only. The most current one is 3.4.7 which came out today with bug fixes.

    The update from Android Market to Google Play Store is for 2.2+ phones. this includes everything except Eclair and below.

    The 3.4.7 update is for any device, or at least it works on my Nexus S 4G running 2.3.7.

    Mine hadn't updated either so I just came to the forum to search for a solution. I found this thread, picked up my phone to delete the icon, looked at the phone and HEY! suddenly the Play icon was there and it asked me to agree to the update! I don't know why it took so long but finally here on March 10th it showed up.
