    Had same situation first time after switching handsets, did a hard reset again, and it worked fine the second time. Also make sure that you are connected to WiFi instantly after reset.

    Same thing happened to me. I can't remeber what I did, but I was able to confirm they were apps I downloaded/purchased while on WP7.5 and are not currently compatiable with WP8.

    If you look at your purchase history here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us You will see some that can't be redownloaded. Some are Nokia apps too.

    Exact same question posted this morning. Many stuck downloads after profile import

    Try this though. Go to the Nokia section of the store and click on Nokia Drive. I guarantee you there is an update for it. This is one of the apps that was failing to download. There are others as well.

    Those are exclusive apps, either carrier exclusive or OEM, or apps that are no longer available.

    Hey.. I 'm using Lumia 800 from Mumbai, India. Windows 7.8 update is available at Nokia Service centres only and not on Zune. So to get that done, I need to fast backup my contacts on hotmail.
    The issues is, when I see the settings of my email, only sync of email is available and not of contacts. The last updated contacts on my hotmail id are the one's which happened post the minor software update in July 2012. Could you please guide me through the steps of getting the option of syncing contacts? If not then could you let me know when are you getting 7.8 across zune?

    A quick revert would be appreciated.
