Default Unable to purchase apps on Marketplace

Hello there, I'm having some trouble with purchasing apps on Marketplace.

When I try to buy an app on my phone I get an error saying: A problem with your account is preventing us from completing your request. I get a different error if I try to buy an app on the PC, this time saying: Error in the service. Please try purchase again (Take note, this was translated from swedish, so it might not be correct) For some reason they're not giving me any error codes.

I'm thinking it's because I force updated my phone, but I'm not sure. Can anybody please help me? I've been trying to fix this all day.

2 things are coming to my mind:
- enable cookies for your IE
- does your Live ID contain the information of a creditcard to pay the app

If he tried on both his PC and his HTC, I'm quite sure it isn't a cookie issue. I'm also quite sure that he would have his card details inserted otherwise he wouldn't even be able to get near to checking out. Only thing I can think of is the wrong details being entered.
Thanks,
Terrum.

Bump. Marketplace is still not working for me and I've waited almost 3 weeks for a solution now.

Only to that single application or to another applications too ?
Same problem with free apps ?

The most problem I ever find with installing from Marketplace seems to be problem with the Live ID identification server or something. If it canít recognize me, then unable to download is not so weird.

But it usually resolve itself after a while and/or phone restart + better internet connection.
