Fixes Error In Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 Methods


In Windows phone, error code “80073CF6” normally appears when the phone is running on the Technical Preview of the Windows phone operating system. The error is normally triggered after downloading an app and you are about to install it. The following are the common symptoms of the problem:

  • You receive error code “80073CF6” every time an app tries to update itself using Auto Update.
  • Unable to install any app from the Windows App store.
  • Unable to update any app using the Windows App store.

There are different solutions to fix this problem. One is to perform the update using a different internet connection. If you are updating or installing an app and you are using your phone’s data connection, try connecting your phone to a Wi-Fi network. If this doesn’t work, check your phone’s date and time settings. On your phone, go to “Settings” then “Date + Time”.

See if the date and time settings are correct. If this doesn’t work, check your age in your Microsoft account and make sure you are twenty one (21). Another thing to check is your SD card. If you are installing an app, make sure you have enough space left in your SD card or try using a different SD card.
