I have purchased a Nokia 800 and wish to add a credit card to my Zune account so I buy apps. I keep receiving a "Error. Please try again soon". The Zune support suggestions of checking the billing address are no help. The card works with Itunes and Google so international is not the problem. A 2nd card also fails. I just want to give people some money. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Go to and sign in with your Windows live ID that you used to sign into to the Nokia Lumia 800. If you never had a gamertag, the phone created a temp one for you and you just need to sign into the Xbox website and make a permanent one. You can also add your credit card there.

You can also go to or to manage your credit card info related to that Windows live ID.

Do whatever you want to do man.
