Just got Lumia activated today. set up my microsoft live mail account in order to download apps  but dumb thing will not allow me to pay the 50 cents MS requires to allow children to use(and I dont have anychildren). And you cannot sign up and download apps without giving it that permission so I cant download any apps Get same message on my laptop using safari, firefox don't matter. Term moron has an entirely new meaning

There is a problem in that I have never seen a message to access the Windows Store on my Windows 8 computers, or laptops. Google the message and see what others have done to correct it.

Good Luck

Thx. Problem is/was when you sign up for a Microsoft account  and make a mistake as I did the MS server remembers the  info you signed up with even when you delete that MS account/start over as I did. A VZ tech was able to solve problem by deleting my old info in the server which allowed me to start over.

Glad you got it fixed. But you taught me something I knew nothing about. Wow a .50¢ charge.

I mistakenly checked off the parental controls box when I signed up for a microsoft account which then charges 50 cents to process to access that feature. So I deleted that Microsoft account and did a new one but it was still asking me for the 50 cents. A VZ tech had to go in servers to delete the data explaining to me that MS servers remember your account data even if you delete it.
