Hello,

I've seen one report of this in the B927 thread, but after having a great day with ICS, I've come to download some of my other apps from Google Play.

I'm getting "your device is not compatible with this application" for a few basic apps, such as Natwest, Barclays and a few others.

Has anyone got a clue why this would be, or how I can overcome it?

If there's no cure, looks like it's back to my B888 backup :(

Cheers.

If I go into Google Play on my Mac, it shows:

This app is compatible with some of your devices.

T-Mobile HUAWEI HUAWEI U8815
This item is not compatible with your device.
Vodafone ZTE Crescent


Interestingly, it shows compatible with the "Vodafone ZTE Crescent" which was a T-Mobile Vivacity, but not the U8815.

Where does Google get the device name from?

The ZTE was never on Vodafone.

Have you tried clearing data in App Manager for Google Play Store? That's been reported to work on other ICS devices when they get this error? Also comments elsewhere about non-default pixel densities confusing things. Maybe nothing to do with this but worth a try maybe.

Strange it works with B826 but not B827. What's the difference other than device ID and a slightly newer kernel?

None of these show in Settings -> Apps

Any idea where to go?

Thanks.

I saw your suggestion for this earlier, and no luck unfortunately. :(

I don't think banking apps work with root. I remember seeing a thread somewhere saying its a security risk...

How about editing build.prop to make it identify itself as lthe U8818 rather than the U8815 variant as in B826? You'd need root for this but you can unroot afterwards if it works,

I have no idea how to do this, unfortunately.

U8815 is it's official model number though, so surely it should work?

Just a shot in the dark but does your google play app need updating itself?

I checked for updates through it, and nothing showed.

Does the Natwest and Barclays apps show for you?

It does show, but says it's incompatible with the device

Exactly the same.

Did you use B926 before? Did they work on there?

Barclays worked, but only after I unrooted the phone on B926, the apps I am having problems with worked fine on B926, but cannot even download them on B927
