    Ok so i have an lg esteem can i still post? My question is....i got a notification that there is am update for the Android market and asks me to download. Can i trust these notifications? Is there a way to know if the are legit? I ask cuz sometimes i get dating notifications for singles and i am married and don't visit those sites...so it is just marketing. Any one know?

    The Android Market should update itself without notifying you...are you sure it was an Android Market update?

    Positive...that is what it said. I almost clicked to update and then thought better and decided to come here first to ask.

    No this was on my phone. It said update market to see all new apps. I got it again but disregarded. I think it must be spam.

    I am new here and don't even have an Android phone yet, but is it possible a user can allow the system to update with no intervention or to require a prompt before updating as is the case with many other systems.

    Maybe the OP originally selected Prompt Before Updating and that is why the message is being received?

    For system updates it should always ask you, but for market updates I have never been asked. That's why I am thinking it could be a B&N Nook thing, especially if they are running a variant of the Android Market...

    Sounds to me like OP is being notified that there are updates available to him in the market. Open the market from your phone. Tap "my downloads". All you apps will be listed. If updates for your apps are available, it will say so.

    Before you "update" the app though, I suggest reading the review and comments posted. Some updates are not always better than the original.

    As for getting notifications sent to you for advertising and services, it sounds like you installed an app that install "air push". I have had the phone for over 2 years. Some apps have ads IN them, but I have never been sent a notification of this sort. Look at the apps you installed and check.

    Ok so i looked at my downloaded apps and there were some updates needed. I went ahead and updated, but i will read comments next time since you said some updates aren't better. It could be that i was being notified for those updates. I will see if i get any more notifications.

    Ok so they were just individual apps, that happens often as devs update their apps.

    I believe that for the automatic update process you gotta set it up on your phone applications options, is like you gotta give the phone permission to to this by itself, check it out
