    I noticed the update for metro.am today and tried to download but got the aforementioned error. I tried a few different apps, some let me download and some gave me the error. Any idea on a fix?

    It seems that purchase history on the Marketplace website doesn't respond too. At least for me. Strange is that it occured to me right after upgrading to Windows Phone 7.8

    https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/my/purchase-history

    Edit: But in some cases I can download trial versions of apps... And the free W Phone 8 app.

    Same problem here trying to download a free app (Whatsapp) to my Nokia 920. However what I can't understand is that I can download other free apps just fine.
    WiFi is good, Location is good, Mains power is connected. Been trying literally for 8 hours.

    I was able to download 'Sleep' as a free app, but after that I wasn't able to download free apps since.

    UPDATE: So I'm still able to download free apps that I haven't downloaded before, but ANY apps that I previously purchased or downloaded gets me that error.

    Same problem. MS has made announcement on their support website : http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/

    January 15, 2013
    Windows Phone Store is currently experiencing some problems with purchasing and billing. You may receive one of the follow error codes while purchasing an app from Store on Windows Phone: c101a006, c101a007, 805a01f4. Or, you may see a "service not available" error message. This outage impacts both Windows Phone and WindowsPhone.com purchase experiences.
    Free app downloads are not affected.

    hmm, app store stability seems a little wishy washy. Isn't this their second outage in like two weeks? I guess microsoft isn't in to high availability.....
