Android market place upgradation problem

I am developing an application which I have installed directly on phone, later I intend to provide an updated version and upload it to android market place. I want the "Update Available" notification to be available for this new version. I have tried the above scenario but market place does not show the indication of the upgrade.
Can anybody help with this regards?

I think there is a service running on the Android devices which periodically(not sure what that interval or time is) checks for upgrades.
1. Have you waited long enough to conclude that upgrade-check was made but not found?
2. Any chance that this check-for-update-service has been disabled on your handset?
3. Have you versioned your app properly?
4. Did you change the version name and version code in the manifest file when publishing upgrades?

Hi Monu, Thanks for your reply.
I have waited for 2 days and I have also changed both Version name & code in manifest

Actuallly I have transferd my application on Android phone with some version, and later I am uploading same application with higher version on Android Market place. It does not show "Update Available" in front of my application on market place.

Rather if my application is already there on Android market place and then after that I transfer it on android phone & again upload higher version on market place in this case it immediatly shows me "Update Available" in market place.

But I dont want to upload my application first on Android Market Place.
I agree. Here's the link:
