How to fix error code 80070490 on my Nokia Lumia 520?

Ad

Error code 80070490 occurs on your Nokia Lumia 520 when you try to download and install updates to applications like WhatsApp from the Windows Phone Store. To fix this issue, you will need to delete the application that's installed on your phone and that you're trying to update. After it has been uninstalled, go back to the Windows Phone Store and reinstall the application. You should no longer get the error code when you try to update your Nokia Lumia 520's applications. If you do, your Microsoft account may have been entered incorrectly into your phone. Follow these steps to make sure your Microsoft account information is accurate on your phone:

Your Nokia Lumia 520 should now be able to download and install applications and their updates without any issues. If you're still suffering from problems, you will need to call Microsoft's customer support (since Microsoft now owns Nokia phone division) to talk to a customer service representative who can help fix the issue or, in a more serious case, set up a replacement or repair for your phone if it has a hardware defect.

I am unable to download any apps in my Nokia Lumia 1320?

Each time I try to download an app I am asked to enter my Microsoft password but the email shown is not mine.How can I remove that email address and enter my own email

The only way to remove an email that was the "Master" account previously on a Nokia device is to factory reset it. If you do not want to factory reset, then go to Email & Accounts in Settings. Turn off the sync for the master account and put your credentials in. Sync those and try again. The Master email may still prevent you, though, which would mean a factory reset to get your phone working properly again.

For Error Code 80048264, you need to put your password again in the main email account within Settings. Reboot your phone and sync the email account.

For Error Code 85010014, go to your Live/Microsoft Account on the PC and update your password. Make sure that you select the Save button so that the change is reflected in the servers. Then change the password on your phone to the same password. Select Sync.

Both these errors are an issue with your email/password. Microsoft recommends a full hard reset of the device. There is usually a corruption within in Contacts or an app that is interfering with the device. Try to think back to the last app you installed before this began or a Contact that you added. Those may be the culprit.

Can't register with this phone number. you can only register with the phone number that was last used with WhatsApp on this phone.."?

Hello. For my Nokia model Lumia 510, I am not able to register my number can you please help me out. I have done a factory reset and reinstalling of WhatsApp, kindly suggest to me solutions on this

You need to have Windows OS 8.0 or higher. This is why you are getting those errors for WhatsApp. Unfortunately, the Nokia 510 was the last 7.8 device and can not be upgraded to use WhatsApp. Sorry that there are no solutions for you but at least you have the answer as to why WhatsApp is not working. The Windows Store really needs the same message Google Play has if your device is not compatible for a download.

How can I get rid of error 80070940?

Hi! After I reset my phone to read the memory card I have blocked certain things related to internet settings, also I can not make a Microsoft account because it says it is not good internet connection although I am connected to WiFi or mobile data. I can not open access points, network +, display + touch, audio, accessories, etc. and of course can not download applications. Can I solve the problem myself?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Toggle your WiFi on and off then try again to sync your Microsoft account. Check Date and Time Settings on your Lumia to make sure they are correct. If you still can't access your Network within Settings, then perform a factory reset. Although you will lose data, you will be able to use your device again.

How to delete an account from the smartphone to create a new account in Play Store?

My Nokia Lumia 1320 gives an error code 80070490, as it has asked to verify the account; but the email I have written is wrong: it doesn't exist, and now I'm in trouble. I can't download applications from Store. Please help me out in this!

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

There is no Play Store on Nokia Lumia 1320 as it is a Windows Phone smartphone. If the problem is the wrong e-mail address, then you can, first of all, navigate to the Manage your account aliases Web page. Then, just click "Add email" to add a proper e-mail address and verify your account by navigating to http://account.live.com and clicking "Security & privacy" > "More security settings" > "Verify".

The second method is mentioned on this Web page (check the answer to "How can I correct my Microsoft account email ID?").

The third method includes entering absolutely different Microsoft account on the smartphone. For that, hard-reset your Lumia 1320. This will erase the active Microsoft account and let you enter a new one.

Usually, errors such as this have to do with your Microsoft Account being out of sync. You also could have low storage or need to toggle your WiFi a few times.

I don't know anything about this site. Is it a paid service?

I screwed up something on my uncle's new phone while trying to set it up. I have that error code which I read how to resolve, but I also initially put his email in incorrectly and now I am getting a "There's a temporary problem" from Microsoft

I have a problem regarding my data connection in using my Facebook. The pictures don't appear. And it keeps on loading. Do you have any idea on how to fix it?

This is a common bug with Facebook. I even will get it from time to time on my Moto X Play connected to WiFi. When this happens, restart your phone. Then connect to WiFi by toggling on and off a few times. Open Facebook again. You may want to log out before you restart your phone.
