Marketplace down for NoDo phones; outage worldwide? [Update]

Users around the globe are reporting, and we have confirmed, that the Windows Phone Marketplace is unavailable.  It's been hours now, and users from the US to the UK are unable to download apps or update apps that are already installed.  Early on it was believed that all users were affected equally, but many people are reporting that it only applies to NoDo phones (version 7930 and above).  The outage also appears to apply to Zune Pass.

Microsoft is aware of the issue but has yet to comment on it.  With all of the prior woes associated with NoDo, this is just what Microsoft doesn't need.  We will keep you posted as more information comes to light.

Hey, WPCentral users, what's happening amongst the rank and file?

Source: WinRumors Thanks Peter for the tip!

Update: It appears the Marketplace is back in action.  We just got a few update notifications that were processed without problem.  We aren't sure the Marketplace is up across the board but progress is being made to resolve the issue.

Anon targeting Microsoft next? I hope not.

TheVakman says:

I am located in Canada, running NoDo on the AT&T Branded Samsung Focus and the Telus HTC Surround. Both on the Rogers network.The marketplace is not down for me.

Rico says:

Yeah, it's been down for me for at least five hours here in the US. Sucks because I got a notification that three of my apps had an update available, one of which is SuperTube which has been crashing when I try to download videos. I'm on a Focus running NoDo officially though I've yet to get even the notification for the security update.

cannon#WP says:

No updates at all on my Panther so Marketplace isn't down for me.

Well i feel a little bit better now that this is out, I thought I was the only one with this problem this morning.

I saw this very same problem just a couple of hours ago, though it was just me or maybe the app that I was trying to download.Guess not!

RockyBramboa says:

SaltyCactus says:

AT&T Focus with NoDo, and the Marketplace has been down for me all morning.Disappointing, my new game was just published today and the majority of people won't be able to download it while it's on top of the "New" list.Hope MS gets it figured out soon.

Ivan006 says:

I have a LG Quantum on Bell and I live in Toronto, Ontario and I can't download any apps right now. I get the same message about coming back later. I hope this doesn't become like a Sony issue, where they leaves us in the dark for so long. BTW, I have the latest software (NoDo plus the update on top of that - 7392).

kaw203 says:

On t mobile in UK and the market place is still working for me fine. But i dont have th nodo yet so that could be something to do with it

Baka says:

HTC - Arrive, NYC...can browse but cannot download from marketplace.

PhilR8 says:

Same here, HTC Arrive in Baltimore.

psyman says:

Dell Venue Pro, unable to connect Marketplace in Hong Kong. = =

mop#WP says:

ATT - Focus - NoDo updatedNo Marketplace for me. Went to get a couple of well-reviewed apps and the Weather Channel update, both a no-go. Or should I say Nodo-go.--------------------------Update, 10:37 am PDT: I can now get marketplace updates and new applications.

razzazzika says:

Glad to know it's not just me. I was trying to download both a new app, a full version of an app I had been running a trial of, and an update. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait til whenever whatever this is is over.

Here are the limits of all these phones, such as iPhone or WP7, totally locked down and tied to Zune/Marketplace or iTunes.As soon as the system is down, your phone just become as shitty as a stone. Plus you give all your identity info and credit card numbers to MS or Apple, and later any hacker can steal your info and money (see Sony)...Seriously WinMo was a better system, a better philosophy after all.

PhilR8 says:

Eh, maybe. Android has pretty much taken the place of WinMo in today's marketplace. Same system, same philosophy.

veii says:

Same here (Trophy with NoGo and the May security update, Vodafone UK).Can access Marketplace, but can't download or update anything. Definitely a pain because my Zune- **** that I pay £8.99 a month for won't work! Who'd be an early adopter, eh? :)Huh? Why did it block out "pass" from "Zune- **** ?And again?

diego3336 says:

The Marketplace is back online here. Open-EU Optimus 7 in Brazil.

PhilR8 says:

Yep! Just downloaded and installed Flickr. HTC Arrive/USA.

GhostITMG says:

Back online in NY on T-Mobile. Now downloading updates I couldn't a couple of hours ago.

iamkornholio says:

AT&T - Focus w/NODO (updated normally, not hack). All working fine, downloading app now and also able to stream music via zune pass. No security patch available yet though.Location - USA/midwest

mikmik111 says:

Yeah, I think the article should be updated now. AT&T Surround, Marketplace is fine.

Baka says:

onemadrssn says:

chsoriano says:

Los says:

azimutha says:

RockyBramboa says:
