Today, anything Bing-related on my phone stopped working. Trying Bing gets a "We can't connect to search right now;" Bing Maps and Local Scout won't work because they can't get my location (Nokia Maps works just fine), and the voice search won't work at all.
I know from doing some quick searches that this was a factor with several phones back in March, but I never really found out how it was resolved. Any ideas?
Edit: New Lumia 900, Verision 7.10 (8112 build). The only thing I did today was to sync a new CD with the phone (and I still have 8.9 GB of free space).

I am in a similar situation :( I have a nokia lumia 900 and I regret buying this phone :(
When use internet explorer on the phone it works fine. I can browse the internet, check emails, etc. BUT Bing related applications do not work. I get the same error message on the screen. Bing, Maps, Zune, Xbox blah blah ... at this point the phone serves its basic purpose ... it is a phone with a huge screen. That is all ...
When I use wireless home network everything works fine though ... So I am thinking the pathetic Bing does not like my service provider or data plan? I see full bars on my phone screen and 4G sign :( I am not sure what the problem is :(
Did you figure out what was wrong with it?
I called ATT and got nothing ... I called nokia and they said they will get back to be in 2 days - I doubt they care ...
Sadly my wife saw me using this phone and wanted one too ... now I have 2 of these pathetic windows phones ...
please let me know if you found a solution <<firstname.lastname@example.org>>

If you are using straight talk or a prepaid carrier, you HAVE to have an APN set up in the carrier settings. Otherwise, Microsoft stuff won't work. For me, on Straight Talk, my Lumia 900 has to have an APN of "att.mvno" in the APN field (that's all I put and save it). That's just for internet/Bing stuff, and you have to download Network Setup for MMS settings...
