There’s been a pretty good sale going on in the Google Android Market’s new Music section that offers a number of songs for free as well as deep discounts on many other songs. I thought that sounded pretty good, decided to take advantage of it and try out Google Music. So I clicked the free song of the day and Android returned an error; “Error retrieving information from server.” I figured okay maybe my reception is too low, so I tried from a different location and time. Same error on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. I kept trying with different songs thinking maybe there was a mistake in the Market for just the songs I was trying to purchase. Every single one had the error! I tried with an Infuse 4G on WiFi running an older version of Android… same error! I asked about it on twitter. Other people are having the same problem.
Have you had this issue as well or is Google Music working perfectly for you?
UPDATE: It turns out the above error regarding server connectivity problems (at least in my situation) really means that the payment method associated with your Google account has expired and needs to be updated by logging into your Google account on a PC.
