Slide Sam 4.0 is slideme.org's market app. It seems whatever new version he has updated to has replaced the android market with the slideMe.org's market? Could this be because he is in India, would the sony update service give him a different rom because of his location?

The thing is, I googled Slide SAM and my first two complaints I received were from Vishnu. If anyone else is having this problem (I would assume so, there are a lot of cellphone users in India), then I would've thought that someone would have heard another complaint by now. I am stumped honestly. I haven't heard of a case where a telecom completely removed the Android Market app from their phone.

Hi guys,

the same happened to me. I just got the phone 5days ago, updated it 2 days ago ....checked my phone and there it was (the same thing...slide me!!!).
should we take it back?

I'm thinking about what you guys should do. I haven't heard of this happening before, and I'm not sure what you should do. You may have two better options:

1. Install a hacked version of the Android market.

2. Root your phone and install a ROM that works on the phone with a correctly working Android Market.
