When I login to windowsphone.com, then click on FIND MY PHONE, it just loads the home screen again.. can anyone here with a Windows Phone confirm this? It seems all the links just redirect to Home Page.

TIA

i cant confirm this for you but just a thought, have you contacted your carrier? they can possibly tell you where the phone last was tracked. that happened for me once

Thanks Chronic.
It is my daughters phone.
:) I know where everyone is, it is just the fact that I logged into her account, AND my account, BOTH seem to be behaving the same..

That's weird, same thing happening to me (and I had used find my phone yesterday, so I know it's working with my phone). I've also been getting a c101a006 error when trying to purchase apps, don't know if they're related O.o

I've been getting an error trying to download apps or stream music on my WP8 phone. Something on their end must be going haywire.

I tried to find my phone using the site and it worked. I have a WP7 if it makes any difference.

I tested it and it is actually doing the same for me as well. It's not just "Find My Phone" its also any link that has details about my device just reloads the same page. Could it be a Windows Phone 7.8 thing or do you have 8?

I am unfortunately on Mango still. I am on TMOUS and they will not give the 7.8 update to use...

So we can confirm it is happening to Windows Phone 7x and 8 and is effecting Marketplace and WindowsPhone.com..
