    Was checking in to see if anyone had any store problems. I can browse the store and pretty much anything else just fine however when I go to download or purchase an app I get "We can't connect to the Store right now, check your data connection or try again later." Was wondering if anyone else experienced this.

    *Edit*
    Tried Wifi and LTE.
    Looks like its a hit or miss so I'm guessing the MS Store is on the fritz. I was able to download the app I wanted but same error on another app I tried.

    Thanks!

    When I was with AT&T the same thing happened with their Lumia, Titan and Focus 2. I think store models have a display OS installed and certain features won't work. It's not a good way to show it (saying there is no network connection) but I believe that is what's going on.

    Others (as am I) are reporting issues with the store currently on the 8X boards. Looks like the "lackluster' sales of WP8 have brought the store to its knees ;)

    Wait... I just realized something, when a WP device is connected via USB to a computer of any sort it won't let you download any apps with that message (check your connection). I believe this is the real issue!

    Huh. I just got my Grey Verizon 822, so I'll check in a moment once I'm activated.

    Turns out it also has bad timing, the marketplace is kind of wonky right now apparently. But yeah sometimes when USB connected to a PC you can't download.

    Welcome to what's usually a day in my worklife when another iPhone launches.

    Nice to see the Windows Phones are doing well enough to kill the market! LOL
