    Ok, so here's the deal. I got phished out of my Live ID. They used it to spam my contact list via Hotmail. Account got locked, I got it back after dealing with customer support. Obviously, during this lockout, I couldn't use any Live ID associated services on my Focus S.

    During this time, I was also unable to perform any Twitter functions on my phone. The error said that the Live ID could be the problem, so I assumed it was. I figured I would go ahead and delete the Twitter account and just re-add it when my Live ID was functional again. It will not let me delete it, still saying that it could be my Live ID. Eventually, My Live ID is back in order and working fine on my phone, but now, I am unable to do anything with Twitter, including delete it. Again, error code 80048861.

    I've went on Twitter.com and revoked access to Windows Live, hoping to remedy it; but alas, nothing. I've searched these forums and the web and found one guy with my exact problem, but no answer.

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Got the solution! You must remove the Twitter connection from profile.live.com.

    Sent from my Samsung Focus S using Board Express.
