Today is a big day for the Windows Phone team at Microsoft, but a partial outage of the Windows Phone Store is raining down on the parade for some. If you are able to access store, than you are in excellent position, as some users are receiving the generic “unable to reach store” notice - error code 805a01f7.
Microsoft has released an announcement on their Microsoft Support Community website noting that the “Windows Phone Marketplace [is] Unavailable in Some Regions”, and that “customers in some markets may be unable to access the Windows phone Store”.
We are currently unable to confirm all regions being affected, but it seems a majority of reports are originating from users in European and Indian markets. Users in the United States currently appear to be unaffected.
Stay tuned to Windows Phone Central for the latest news on the release of the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers.
Are you having problems with the Windows Marketplace – what region are you in?
