PSA: Windows Phone Store down for some [Update: It's back]

Update: It appears that the Windows Phone Store is back in business. Download on.

Having trouble accessing the Windows Phone Store? You're not alone. About 3:10 PM PST is when we first started getting errors connecting to the Windows Phone Store. Since then tips are coming in from others that they're unable to access or update apps in the Windows Phone Store.

Having trouble connecting? Let us know which region you're in. We'll let you know when the Windows Phone Store is back up and running.

Thanks for the tips everyone!

  • Hi all, I have just noticed when checking "Activity" on my account is empty. The same with my sons' accounts. One of them cannot cannot even play Xbox Live games on his phone but he can go through the store and install all the apps and games, xbox live games included. The game section in his phone says "Log in or register your XBOX account". Of course, he has got his one for years. Until yesterday before the store update  everything had been OK.   Any clue?
