    I just sent my phone for servicing so all the data were erased and I was told I could EASILY restore my settings and app list later.

    So today, I got my phone back. Nokia care changed the battery for me (and it was almost 1 year old!) as well as the screen (my original screen had scratch on it) for free!!!!

    However, beside this exciting service offered by Nokia, I was really annoyed by the restoration process!

    I restored the phone according to Microsoft's website, and everything went fine initially until I noticed something very awkward: I have 240+ apps downloading that "require attention" in the store.

    Obviously the app listing restoration was not successful. So I tapped on those problematic downloads and a message popped out "You need to accept the Store's Terms of Use to download this app."


    This is supposed to be a restoration of my apps, and should be an AUTOMATIC process. There was no option for me to accept "Store's Terms of Use" before downloading and I don't know what to do now. All my app downloads are paused and I cannot remove them from the list easily (have to long press ONE BY ONE). This is really really very annoying.

    Could anybody advise me what to do or is this a BUG of windows phone OS?

    Try to sync your MSFT account once. You download any new app from the store prior restoring it. I think it will start to download if you initiate it by downloading some new app once from the store.

    OK, issue solved.....

    I logged on to The Smartphone Reinvented Around You | Windows Phone (United States) and accepted store's "terms of use" from there.

    But it's still a bit ridiculous as why must I use the web service to activate store and cannot accept TOU right from store directly?
