New Error on Marketplace – 805A01f4

Windows Phone users are not new to errors when trying to use the app marketplace.  Especially in the last few months errors and service interruptions have been common occurrences.  Unfortunately there may be a brand new error affecting the marketplace.  Users have been reporting an error code 805a01f4 when trying to download applications from the Windows Phone marketplace during the last few weeks.

I myself have been affected irregularly since the beginning of the week.  A Microsoft Answers page  for the error started up on the first of the month and is the first reference to the error that I have been able to find on the web.  Most of those who have been affected, it seems, have been since around the 10th of the month.  The error usually presents occurs randomly denoting that the Marketplace is not available.  Usually after a phone reboot or a bit of time, however, users are able to download without a problem.  There is no Microsoft knowledge article about this error and Microsoft employees have not responded on the Microsoft Answers page.  Have any of our readers experienced this problem?  If you have has it been a regular occurrence or has it infrequently affected you?
