Roses are red, violets are blue and Windows Phone is still alive and kicking, at least for some users. Today, thousands of users with Windows Phone 8.1 phones complain about error 80070020 when downloading applications and games. Windows Phone Store throws error 80070020 when the user tries to download an application and it seems that there is no official solution available.
While Windows phones, as we know, no longer seem to have a future, since Microsoft completely abandoned the platform completely, however, the Windows Phone store should continue to work well. Windows Phone Store error 80070020 seems to be affecting all Lumia phones with the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, but there is an easy solution.
Fix Windows Phone Store error 80070020
- Open configuration.
- Go to the Date and time settings, and change the date of your phone to December 3, 2017.
It is also worth noting that this solution is temporary and has its disadvantages, but we believe that the software giant is already working on a solution to the reported errors.
Last year, Microsoft suspended Windows Phone 8.1, while many expected Microsoft to have supported its smartphone users, but that does not seem to be the case.
The company recently announced that it is withdrawing push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0. This means that devices running the Windows Phone 8.0 operating system will no longer receive notifications, such as WhatsApp messages. However, Microsoft has confirmed that Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile will still support notifications and updates.
“On February 20, 2018, Mobile Push Notification services will be disabled for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0, once this happens: your phone will no longer receive notifications,” says Microsoft.
If the rumors are to be true, it is reported that Microsoft is working on a mobile device with Windows 10 ARM operating system. It will not compete in the category of smartphones, so a project of this type is coming, but it will not replace your Windows phone or your smartphone.
