Fix: Windows Phone Central App should be working again (for those on AT&T)

Last night, we reported that our app was having a few troubles on the AT&T network (and a few of you on Verizon said the same). It was a networking issue, not the app directly and while we won’t bother you with the details, it should be working for most users now.

We just checked on our phones and have finally had a successful connection, but we need to make sure all is good for the rest of you. So if you use our app and are on AT&T, Verizon, etc. please take the poll below and let us know your results!

iknowsingh says:

Never had any issues on Sprint LTE with the ATIV S Neo! Keep up the great work with the app! I downloaded the app and tried it on my gf's AT&T 920 yesterday and it was spotty. I'm sure things are back to normal if everyone else is reporting it's fixed.

I have crashing issues with the app when not using WiFi. I'll try to test it again after I update my AT&T 920 later today.

zeke009 says:

It still crashes on my L920 after the updates.

sqlchicken says:

Same here, even with gdr2 (issue happened yesterday too, pre upgrade)

ravi.tandon says:

As a techie, I really would like to know the details. Daniel, care to shed a light?

DeepK7 says:

Yes, agree, do share the details, we are not bored by the details. It would be good to know what layers were causing the issues.

RayWP7 says:

What if some of us want to be bothered with details? Knowledge is power.

My AT&T 920 still keeps crashing.  Even after uninstalling and reinstalling.
Glad to see it isn't just me.  I thought it was retailiation for checking other carriers' prices and favoriting iMore.com on my phone.  :-)

gamo62 says:

Nope. Still flakey. Works on WI fi.

paulxxwall says:

Sweet quick fixes...i like it!

GMJeff says:

My Lumia 1020 on at&t is now loading the app properly. The app now crashes for me when I try to access the forums. Does the exact same thing, tap on forum tile and crash to the start screen. Open app back up, and get the crash error message.

Jas00555 says:

News reader works, but crashes in the forums

bobsentell says:

Reset your phones. That got it to work for me.

mixxxk says:

Nakazul says:

Ouch, HP is going to abandon Microsoft. The time when Microsoft was a world leader, have started its slow decline now :(

KasakDesign says:

Whoa hp is abandoning Microsoft? And yes wpc is working just fine now. Has been for a couple hours I feel like

SoloXCRacer says:

Okay, the developer in me wants to know what the technical details were. :)

wpgeek820 says:

Hmm.. Well I've had this issue from the day I bought the app- The live tile just goes black with a few letters near the left edge. Anyone else have this problem? This doesn't happen all the time. To make it right I just need to open the app and close it. No biggie but still, a fix would be nice.

Still crashes. I am logged into the forums and news page btw. Lumia 920 on att.

KasakDesign says:

This used to happen to me.

purevibz says:

No it's not for me

Sunofabob says:

I never had issues but I do now.

theavrgjoe says:

I have an AT&T Lumia 920 GDR1, yesterday I could only get on WPCentral if I was on WiFi, otherwise I got a error message. Today, I'm having no problems getting on WPCentral, with or without WiFi. Thanks for your quick fix guys, you should teach AT&T how to do the same with Lumia 920 updates.

ArchieVellie says:

Still having an issue. However, once I send the email, the app actually lets me in.

It was broken, then it started working. Then I did todays ATT update on my 920 and it is broken again.

GDannyboy says:

I keep getting a connection error, but the it works fine. I'm on AT&T, HTC 8x. I've gotten a msg on my phone that I'm now using GSM network, or I will have no network connection at all, a very rare thing, in areas that I normally have a connection. I've just been assuming that AT&T was updating towers or software.

shreyas15 says:

Using an unlocked 720. The wide tile is going black! :(

Rick Smits says:

I'm on ATT and it works on WiFi but not when on LTE.
