Everytime I try to download anything from google play market it says it cannot with error -101. I have tried clear data, force stopping and clearing data on google services framework but nothing seems to work. It also happens on other roms, be it gb or ics. It seems my google account has been blocked?

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

Wait it out, there's no other way to solve it on your end.

I thought it maybe something like that. Times a healer

So a volume download ban, huh?
I just reflashed the rom - had to do it twice because first time the a2sd got screwed. On the first time, though, all the apps restored and installed fine(until the memory filled up, damnit), on the 2nd go there's sh!tload of memory available but nothing downloads because of the 101 error.
Does that make sense?
And how long do I have to wait 'ere it wears out?
thx..

I don't think that the 101 error is anything to do with a download limit - unless Google use it as a general "Something went wrong" error message.

I hardly ever install new apps, so my downloads from the Market (still can't bring myself to call it Google Play) are minimal. This morning I reloaded Reaper onto my phone, signed in to my Google account and started getting the 101 messages whenever I tried doing anything on the Market.

Ran a Factory Reset on my phone, signed in again and it worked perfectly. The only difference was that the first time I enabled my WiFi first, the second time I did it all over the mobile network.

Interesting. I think I used wifi on the first time and just mobile on the second time. And then, later enabled wifi on the 2nd, too. No difference there - it D/L'd everything nicely on the first time and totally blows on the 2nd - no matter what.

edit1:
mkay, seems that the error could be related to the version of the market. I've got 3.4.6 now, but 3.5.15 seems to be needed to use the market correctly. Trying out now, will post back how it went.

edit2:
Yup, that worked.
The final verdict: Google play won't allow you to access if it is outdated. That's where the error 101 comes from.

Got the new version from there

Got error 921 after installing 3.5.15
clearing google play store and google services framework data solved this issue.

I was getting error -101 on Store updates after an upgrade to 4.0.4, and error 921 after forcing an upgrade of Google P* Store to 3.5.15. Clear data/force stop on Google P* Store and Google Services Framework, either with or without a reboot, did not seem to help. I deleted my Google account from the phone and re-added it, and that seemed to fix it.

Unhappy remove google account?
That's a tough thing to ask.
To remove google account, would mean for me to do a Factory reset.

also getting 921 error on Vending 3.5.16
