Could you point me to right direction as I have not found the answer I was looking for? – Lamin Sanneh Aug 7 '12 at 8:07
I tryed my best with my previous answer. I'm not familiar with windows-phone programming, so I can't help you anything here. But from the speed that your questions come I see that you didn't even try to see what the previous answers were about. If you don't read the answers and the links, than what's the point of asking questions? – superM Aug 7 '12 at 8:11
Could you just give me a genric answer then, one that does not apply to windows phone? Just looking for help thats all. And cheers for even bothering to comment, I will look better next time. – Lamin Sanneh Aug 7 '12 at 8:14
There can be no trivial answers. I can only advise you to encapsulate exception-handling, and to find some good tutorial. unfortunately, I can't suggest any – superM Aug 7 '12 at 8:26

There are different ways how to handle errors. basically you use framework to handle the application errors as well as there is a way to handle device related exceptions.

Here is a good intro to how to handle device specific exceptions on windows phone: - Windows Phone 7 Development : Handling Device Exception

There is a related pots in SE - Windows Phone 7 - Handle Error in Application_UnhandledException with WebClient.

Nice video-tutorial from Channel 9 - Code Cleanup, Exception Handling, and Preparing for the Marketplace
