If you are unable to open the Windows Phone Store application, try restarting your phone. When it has booted back up, try to reopen the application. If you can, you should be able to download applications. If you are not able to open the store again, however, you may need to reset your phone back to its original factory settings. This will wipe all of your data, so before you begin this process, you should back your phone up through your favorite backup program. Once your phone is backed up, do the following:

  • Open your Settings application.
  • Tap About.
  • Tap Reset your phone.
  • Tap Yes twice.

Your phone will now be brought back to its original factory settings. This should take care of your Windows Phone Store issue since you're wiping your software and starting new. If you still can't open the Windows Phone Store, you will need to contact Nokia to ask about getting a repair for your device; a Factory Reset only fixes software issues, and if you're having problems with software after you perform one, there may be something wrong with your phone's hardware.
