Hi there. I wanted to stop a download but there was no way I could find. Advanced task killer killed the internet, but not the download.  I switched off the internet connection but when I switched it back on it started up again. Any clues?

Is it a market download (app/game) or from the internet? If it is from the market, go to your downloads and you can cancel the download here. If you are downloading from the internet, when you view the download, you should be able to cancel it using menu option.

Thanks for the reply.  It was downloading a movie clip from the net. The only place I could see the download taking place was from the activity bar (where you are notified of new messages etc) so there is no control...look fwd to further responses.

Go into Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage applications>Download Manager

Clear data in the Download Manager.  That should stop the download.  Turning the phone on and off will not fix it.

Good luck.

If you click and drag down your notification bar you should then be able to select the download and from there get an option to cancel.  Hope this helps.
