Windows Phone 7 - Bing Maps - Unable to contact Server. Please try again later.

I've been building a Windows Phone 7 application that uses a Bing Map control.  Until recently it was working fine but since I've updated the phones software (Feb update) I am getting the error message " Unable to contact Server. Please try again later." in the map control instead of the map showing my location.  Has anyone heard of this issue since the software update was released... or is it just a coincidence?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

Managed to answer my own question... FINALLY!  Been fighting with it for too long.  Turned out that it was a missing <Capability Name="ID_CAP_NETWORKING"/> item in my WMAppManifest.xml file.  I had removed it after running the capabilities tester and inadvertantly removed it when I was removing the rest that I didn't need.  Thought it was worth leaving the question here in case it will help someone else :)
