App rejected because "The applications main functionality cannot be tested". RRS feed

  • Question

  • My WP8 app requires an Internet connection in order to search for and play back music from YouTube. At launch it checks to ensure the phone is connected to a network. If it is not it produces the message, "NOT CONNECTED. This application requires a network connection to find and playback music from the internet. Please connect to a Wifi hotspot (recommended)or cellular network when within range.".

    The app is rejected for certification because "The application cannot be tested for compliance for Windows Phone Application Certification Requirements due to geographic, hardware, and/or software limitation(s). The application's main functionality cannot be tested." The tester reports receiving this message, but apparently still does not attempt to connect to a network.

    I specified in the run instructions that the app requires a network connection. Why then is it failed for certification for this reason? The test device clearly did not have a network connection.
