We know that Microsoft is no longer working on Windows phone operating system. Last year Microsoft confirmed in a document that Windows Phone 8.1 will not receive security updates after July 11, 2017. Microsoft had also commented that Windows Store and other apps will work for another 12 months after the end of life support date for the OS.
But the users of Windows phone 8.1 has revealed on various forums that the Windows store is not able to download any app and showing an error with error code: 80070020. Windows phone users are left with even more frustration now as they have been facing the app gap problem on the OS since the beginning.
This issue would give them one more reason to finally stop using a Windows phone if this error is not resolved quickly. It looks like Microsoft is not aware of this issue otherwise they would have given a solution. This kind of store error is not the first time for Windows Phone users error code 80070020 has been seen many times.
A good news here is that some Windows phone users have discovered a workaround for this issue whereas changing the date of the phone to 3rd December 2017, resolve the error and store start to download apps again. We request those users who are facing this issue to change their date and continue to use their phone and wait for the official solution from Microsoft.
It’s a really sad moment for Windows Phone users. We will post as soon as an official statement is given by Microsoft.
