1. I bought a windows phone 7 weeks ago.what a p.o.s it is.I can’t get any apps from Microsoft store,it always says Microsoft service unavailable try again later.well 43 days later still no store.should have went with the Jitterbug.Help!!!!!

  2. David: did you try the suggestion in this article? If it still does not work, you may want to contact Microsoft for assistance with the phone.

  3. You were on the money, thank you.

    It’s a bit of a shocker that even though I had the date and time on automatic, it hadn’t updated itself to the current date and time.

    Had been off for a month though and doesn’t have sim in, just using wifi, never the less keeping time and time accurate is a basic.

  4. My date and time are up to date and this is the 8th month still trying
    what must i do cos my cellphone always say ‘the microsoft account service is not available right now, try again later

  5. Mines didn’t work, but after reading the article I was able to getting working again. I guess since the setting was in automatic it waits to talk to the network to get the time, but if you don’t have a sim or working network then the automatic setting will not work. I changed it to manual and added the time, and now it works. Thanks.

  6. I tried all the suggested options but it didn’t worked for me. While installing any app it is showing the error “Microsoft account service unavailable right now. Try again later.” also while updating any app it is showing network problem.
    please suggest if any other thing is there to fix this issue.

  7. This did not help. The date and time are correct, and I tried turning off the auto date just in case, but no good. I can’t update any apps, this has been going on for a few weeks.

  8. I had this problem for 2months now but soon as I changed my wrong date setting then everything can back to normal. Thanks

I still got the “Sorry, we couldn’t connect to Microsoft Services right now. If this problem persists, search for “network problems” on the Start screen.” when I try and create an account. Everything else works but that. I have tried every solution I can find but nothing works.
