3.10 Country/Region Specific Requirements – Windows Phone Marketplace

I recently re-submitted a previously live app to new markets. I was surprised when I was told it failed certification. Reason is Policy 3.10.

Specifically, I got this comments: Your application uses the Bing Maps Silverlight Control for Windows Phone. Bing Maps is not supported for
Group 1 countries at this time. You may resubmit your application and deselect the Group 1 countries.

Result: Fail

So watch out, don’t submit Bing Maps enabled apps to Group 1 countries, which are:

Group 1: China
