    I'm new to this tablet stuff. Just purchased a Light-in-the-Box Tablet (Android 2.3 version). Settings set to download to SD Card, but when I try to download free files from Android Market through Google Login, tablet says "no android phone associated with this account". I thought an Android Phone was not needed if you have the tablet. Any assistance would be appreciated.
