    Buying through AT&T in the market

    Hello - I am having trouble buying through AT&T in the Android Market on my phone. For some reason it times out every time I try (I've only had the phone for a couple of weeks). I can downlaoad with a credit card.

    Thank you!! Hank

    You have to go into your Google account and set up Checkout with your credit card info. Then it should work. Good luck.

    Yes - I am trying to buy on the market through AT&T. It gives me an option to do it but times out (sometimes) or isn't highllighted (sometimes).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again!

    You have to be connected to the AT&T mobile data network for this to be used. AT&T sends the billing data to your Google account to bill you. If you're not on AT&T data then it won't be an available option; if you're on a weak signal then it might show up as an option, but if you drop signal after selecting it then it would probably cause it to timeout. Does this sound like could be happening?

    Do you mean the data plan (I have that) or connected to a data line (wifi)? I can see the option now (when I'm connected to wifi) but it is still not an option to choose (it is stilll not highlighted).

    Thanks again

    Don't worry buddy, it doesn't work for me either. I tried it once or twice trying to buy something and it just timed out. I don't think they got all their crap together to be honest.

    Yep, it appears there's something not right there... I had never gone all the way trying to use the AT&T billing (easier to use Google checkout already set up), but now that I have tried I'm getting the Network Error message. Not sure if AT&T has everything hashed out like NaLoMo said.

    It works now (it looks like I needed: wifi enabled and a connected plus a good phone signal).

    Thank you for the help! Hank
