    Hi, I'm sorry if I am posting in the wrong place :)

    When I go to download a new app or update one I get this error message:
    There is a problem completing your request. Try again later. Error code: 80070490

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks :)

    Have you ever been able to update or download? The Marketplace server goes down sometimes. But it usually corrects itself after a few hours. Sometimes a day.

    I was having issues with the marketplace last night.

    As with most things, if that doesn't work, reboot the phone (hold down the power button for a couple of seconds)

    Doesn't matter anymore :) The Mango update didn't give me the error code but it told me what the actual problem was :) It was because I switched my xbox live email to the one on my windows phone and the apps were not it my purchase history so it couldn't download the updates :D Thanks anway
