Cannot login to microsoft account Lumia 435

I recently bought a Microsoft Lumia 435 from my local second hand shop.

when i got home i began to setup the phone to download some apps like Whatsapp and Messenger only to hit an error when i tried to login to my microsoft account, the exact one im using to write this post!

everytime i try and sign into my microsoft account i get the error "cannot connect right now, please try again later" or words to that effect.

ive tried everything - resetting the phone, hard reset, turning off auto time and date and still cant sort it out. 

if i cant resolve this here then the phone is going back tomorrow and im going back to android :(
