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.

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.
