Google Checkout, Android Market broken with no way to get support

 I have a few things to address here. First lets present the first
problem I have created a bug report for: 

Reported by a user of my application:

I had a replacement phone sent to me and when I try to re-download
application, I get an unsuccessful message.

I switched the phone out first, then set up the new phone. From there,
went to "my downloads" in the market, chose the Remembory icon, then
re-install. The application acted like it was going to re-download,
said, "download unsuccessful" in the notifications area.

Thanks for getting back so soon. This happened with only two of my
downloads, this and another, and they both happen to be the ones I
paid for.

So it would seem, if you purchase an application on one phone, then
that phone dies, you get a replacement phone and try to download a
purchased application, Google Checkout and/or Android Market do not
let you download it.

This goes on top of the bug I reported earlier about a developer not
being able to download their own paid application.

The number of issues with Google Checkout and/or the Android Market is
really annoying. Worst of all, there is no way to contact Google
directly and get things sorted out.

I have given this customer a full refund to make up for Google's bug!


Google Checkout, Android Market broken with no way to get support

 Tried to buy my first item. Says there was an error. Goto to fix it. No idea what the error I am fixing is.
Think, well, maybe when I go to the page it suggests there will be
some kind of message waiting for me. There is none. I test that
everything works and I have bought things in the past just fine via
the web. Try it several more times... Same thing...

Google, you suck ass!

1. Bind a list of items to a view that doesn't act like a list

I have a collection of objects that I want to display in a scroll
viewer.  I played around with a ListView and setting things like
setting focusable to false or clickable to false, etc, but it didn't
look/act like I wanted it to.  I just want scrollable text (don't
highlight each item when focused or touched, don't highlight the list
itself when focused or touched, but allow me enough "focusability" to
actually scroll the thing, etc).  I tried ALOT of attributes on the
ListView and the child items to turn off its "listiness", but none
worked as expected and always left a trace of list behavior.

The only way I have gotten this to work to my liking is to loop
through my list, construct a bunch of TextViews and add them to a
LinearLayout, but I hate the way the code looks.  I also considered
building an html string with the Html helper functions, but that's
weak from both a code standpoint and because css doesn't seem to be
supported (and I'm not going back to font tags!).

I can't seem to find a stream lined way to do this.  Is there such a
thing as defining a layout in xml and binding it to some kind of list
without creating something that acts like a list view?
