Hi,

I've got a new HTC 8s which I bought off trade me but can't get into the app store or update my phone as the accounts I have synced are my fb and my hotmail/outlook.
On the phone it has Microsoft account but I can't get it too work.
It says I need to ring Microsoft to get a code.
I think this phone is a demo from overseas so maybe that's the issue?
Bloody frustrating as it asks if I want to use my outlook account to access the appstore and if I say no my hotmail will sync but if I say yes it won't work for either.
My wife has the same phone and hers works fine- bought from the warehouse.
I even made a new account thinking that might work but still no good.
Anyone else had this issue or anything similar?

Thanks

Nik

Hi,
Yeah its covered on this link so I'll ring Microsoft tomorrow and see if I can get a code.
Hopefully that'll fix it.
