THen it should be fine for the App store downloading.
P.S. I always wonder why microsoft cant fix this simple problem and post it out the solution publicly .
Letting users searhc so hard to find such solution is really stupid for you! mircosoft!!
Sorry to say but this method didn't work for me. The error code is still showing.
And now for a rant: I got my Lumia 920 when it released in Australia. Randomly I got this error and couldn't download apps for a week. Then I somehow fixed it by installing an app through the Store Deals app, which I already had on the device. Then my Lumia got dust in the front camera, so I took it back to Telstra and they sent it off for repair. A week and a half later, I got it back with the dust still visible in the camera. I sent it back, and then a week later it returned with around 8 large scratches in the screen, which was in mint condition before I sent it off. I sent it off again, and a week and a half later it came back with a new screen and no dust. I am just waiting for the phone to have the same problem again, as I've read up on the reason why it got there in the first place. Just to keep things interesting, my lumia is now showing that damn error again, and try as I may, there's no way to get around it.
Dear Nokia, Microsoft and Telstra. This experience has been very very bad. I will not be buying another Nokia product, nor another Windows phone, when you can't get the simple stuff right. I don't care about an optically stable camera, wireless charging, or whatever other spin you put on it, when I can't download apps, or even make calls because there's dust in the camera lens. What's the point of having a smartphone that can't even do these things right? There are thousands of people with the dust issue, and you haven't even announced any official fix. Times may be tough for your company, but failing to address your shortcomings will not make them go away.
Microsoft does report that Xbox Music and Video (aka Zune) is having issues for browsing and purchasing items and we’re quite certain that overlaps with the Windows Phone Store. The good news is Microsoft is well aware of the problem and on top of it, meaning this could be fixed by the time we post (or be a few hours).
Update: Looks like Bing, Xbox Music + Video and Windows Phone (all separate, but related) are being affected. Yikes.
