Getting Error "The Windows Live ID Service is unavailable at the moment. Try again later." when upgrading or installing app from Marketplace

Today I have been getting the following error "The Windows Live ID Service is unavailable at the moment. Try again later." when upgrading or installing app from Marketplace on WP7. My phone is the LG e900. Its only been happening since this morning as far as I am aware, but its 7 hours now and still not working. I have rebooted the phone but no go. Anyone got any ideas, or having the same issue?

I'm getting a message indicating that the license is invalid while trying to reinstall apps, I wonder if marketplace servers are just not working properly.

Ive run into this myself a hand full of times and worked through this with a few customers as well, and found this, as well as a similar coded error in the market as a known issue.

 

the fix ive experienced is to do one of two things:

a) factory reset the device. yes, not the most opportune option, but the reset blows associated error and refreshes the market downloader.

b) if you can find the manual HARD reset for the device, try that option, as it has the same response on the market downloader.

 

I have had sucess after having to do this a few times, and am now working fine for a whole week. wooo  : /

I've finally got mine to work without the need to reset. I've actually ran thru each of the Windows Live Service and try to see if it can connect:

1. Marketplace - gets the error when trying to update

2. XBox Live - unable to edit avatar

3. Posting on ME tile - unable to share a quick message

4. Hotmail - can sync emails

5. OneNote - it tried to sync my notes on skydrive, it failed but asked me to input my password. I then input my password and was able to go thru

After doing step 5, I've retested steps 1-3 and was now able to go thru without any issues.
