Fix: Windows Phone Central App should be working again (for those on AT&T)

Last night, we reported that our app was having a few troubles on the AT&T network (and a few of you on Verizon said the same). It was a networking issue, not the app directly and while we won’t bother you with the details, it should be working for most users now.

We just checked on our phones and have finally had a successful connection, but we need to make sure all is good for the rest of you. So if you use our app and are on AT&T, Verizon, etc. please take the poll below and let us know your results!

Fix: Windows Phone Central App should be working again (for those on AT&T)


I had trouble (on ATT). was blaming my phone before i saw the report. Now its fixed. no issue. You guys are of course the best :-)

Never had any issues on Sprint LTE with the ATIV S Neo! Keep up the great work with the app! I downloaded the app and tried it on my gf's AT&T 920 yesterday and it was spotty. I'm sure things are back to normal if everyone else is reporting it's fixed.

Yes, agree, do share the details, we are not bored by the details. It would be good to know what layers were causing the issues.

My AT&T 920 still keeps crashing.  Even after uninstalling and reinstalling.
Glad to see it isn't just me.  I thought it was retailiation for checking other carriers' prices and favoriting iMore.com on my phone.  :-)

My Lumia 1020 on at&t is now loading the app properly. The app now crashes for me when I try to access the forums. Does the exact same thing, tap on forum tile and crash to the start screen. Open app back up, and get the crash error message.

Ouch, HP is going to abandon Microsoft. The time when Microsoft was a world leader, have started its slow decline now :(

Hmm.. Well I've had this issue from the day I bought the app- The live tile just goes black with a few letters near the left edge. Anyone else have this problem? This doesn't happen all the time. To make it right I just need to open the app and close it. No biggie but still, a fix would be nice.

Didn't work on non-WiFi attempts. Worked fine on WiFi. Turned off WiFi again and now doesn't work again. FWIW, Lumia 1020 on AT&T.

I have an AT&T Lumia 920 GDR1, yesterday I could only get on WPCentral if I was on WiFi, otherwise I got a error message. Today, I'm having no problems getting on WPCentral, with or without WiFi. Thanks for your quick fix guys, you should teach AT&T how to do the same with Lumia 920 updates.

I keep getting a connection error, but the it works fine. I'm on AT&T, HTC 8x. I've gotten a msg on my phone that I'm now using GSM network, or I will have no network connection at all, a very rare thing, in areas that I normally have a connection. I've just been assuming that AT&T was updating towers or software.

It just crashed a couple times now, but then started up ok. ( at&t L1020).

Poll? No poll visible on the app.

I still get the error message at the homepage. Instead of hitting ok or cancel (for the error report), I just hit the back button and it lets me into the app. 1020 on AT&T

Still not working on mine articles load but the forums do not work. The app crash when I click on the forums.

Yeah, it was crashing & not connecting around 8 hours ago. But that was on WiFi, in Australia. The website worked okay though.

Had anyone tried clearing cache? I just did fresh install but didn't think to try that.

still not working on my Lumia 920 ATT network. As soon as I go cellular it crashes and throws errors :(
I have no issues with Tapatalk on the other hand.
