Service Alert - Windows Phone Store unavailable in some regions
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 (opens in new tab) 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?
Thanks, jldirks and AnkitDutta7, for the tips!

Why the hell just let US people use cortana? Europeans know English language aswell(just sayin)
You have to be a freak to add quiet hours feature to cortana, it's so usefull and now europeans have to wait until 2032 to get it. Why add games to app lists? Really?
No more MS messenger of any sort integrated? Rooms kinda sucks aswell now
WP8.1 doesn't feel as fluid as WP8 sometimes Xbox music sucks big bawls, i expected it alteast to have a sync of some sort, but nooooo...
Not a single improvement in office, one of the selling points...
Same with OneNote....
Promised additional wifi settings aren't there
Lots of cool stuff which was supposed to be in WP8.1, got removed(probably keeping for wp8.2 because they have no new ideas) /end
I don't really care about cortana, i just want to sleep tight with quiet hours feature.
PLUS you save battery
PLUS your brain gets less microwaved when you sleep next to your phone!
+games to app list
+calendar tile should have more events on it
It even lags when you scroll your games list.
And why in the world did they remove the comma in the standard keyboard?
I have to tap on the &123 to make it appear, that's reeeeally annoying :/
The same from Italy...
I tried it with WP 8.1 device changed to US region and language. I can access but can't download anything. It keeps saying there's an error.
Hope Microsoft will be quick on resolving these issues, cuz i can't use maps or drive before updating em...
No Cortana (as expected).
No swipe in Portuguese, and don't tell me to change to US cause I'll not be typing in English to my Portuguese friends. It's just retarded.
Rest is pretty awesome!
Cant get cortana to work either :(
The same issue I have been occured for several apps that had been purchased before I updated to WP8.1
Feel free to make a "payment" again since you will not be charged because purchases are linked along with Windows account...
Btw, I was told about this about my Battery Status Pro app - I sent an email today saying I've got an issue with paid app...and they replied to redo a purchase, but it will be cost-free.
But, since Store is still down...I have not been able to restore any of my installed apps yet.
Ps. I'm living in Morocco, Africa
While I did find it great..some features aren't working as expected..they are..
-Music player and Videos missing
-Unable to install apps from the Store
-Unable to update apps like Here Maps..Here Drive+,Zomato
-Unable to open Battery Saver
Does anyone have fixes for these issues pls?:(
