Does the store work or not? or will it work soon?
should I install 8.1 update on my lumia 520?
I'd like to point out for those people changing to US region for Cortana, that if you have an accent very un-like the American accent, then you are going out of your way to get a voice assistant who won't understand what you are saying, thus making Cortana virtually useless. It's much better for some of you (including myself) to leave this function out of the phone until they make Cortana available to your region of the world. That is, unless you feel like changing your accent every time you wish Cortana to process a command.
Everything works fine except the fact that i can't connect to apps/games stores. Everytime i tried, it says something along this lines "We can't connect to the stores right now. Check your data connection or try again later.". My data connection always on, and other connection-required apps works well (facebook, twitter, email, browsers). I've reset my phone and it still doesn't work. I've signed on Microsoft account. It works well.

is there any prblm by registrng to preview for developers
Hello, i updated my Ativ S nicely, it works ok. But every 2 minutes my phone goes to flight mode and restarts, i think there's something wrong! thanks!
genio, 14 Apr 2014Guys before you update just change the region to united states and then update and you will re... moreok. ba My Lumia 520 keep searching for the update for a long time now. i cannot be prompted to download. can any u help?
Ok -- Step 1) register as stated in the article. Step 2) install the 'Preview for developers' app from the Store (the Store is down at the moment). Step 3) Open the app and enter your account details - go through the instructions and then check for update. Step 4) You will have installed an update that is prerequisite for 8.1. Step 5) After restarting your phone, update to 8.1 - it will take some time. Step 6) Enjoy. P.S. For Cortana beta, use Region US and language US. It works if changed after update as well. Also, with the store down, please keep in mind that a lot of apps will not work - Sync with Facebook for example, Here maps and Here Drive as well, probably more.

[deleted post]No you don't need to dev unlock,simple make a free studio account,install preview for developers app from store,login,check the box in the app,check for updates,there will be a small update at first of about 4 mb,install it and then check again,there i will be a new update of about 450mb,install that(it will take a very very very long time),and you're done!!!If you're not in US but want to use cortana,download the US language pack and change region to US.
tee.jay, 14 Apr 2014Even i hv got it in India...man this update is awsome.. updating to dev preview in India do we lose the warranty period of device
I have just updated my phone to windows phone 8.1 . But after the update the store doesn't work . And it says that I have error 805a01f7 . Anyone have a solution for this error ??
I changed my region to united states but still my phone showing your phone is up to date, im from india
Guys before you update just change the region to united states and then update and you will receive the Cortana assistant as well. Updated on Lumia 920 in south Africa and received everything included in the developer preview update. I love the action center and the third column of tiles but the best things I can see is the keyboard and Cortana assistant. Flow keyboard is amazing. Register for free and update now. I am now confident I will be upgrading to another windows phone in the future maybe Lumia 930. Well done Microsoft!!!
