Hi

 

Anyone using the unlimited photo storage which comes with the Amazon Prime membership.   My Amazon Cloud drive is redirecting to amazon.com.au which is saying my trial is due to expire.  How do I set up unlimited photo storage so that it is under my US amazon.com account.   I am using DNS4ME so not sure why it is redirecting to amazon.com.au.

 

Cheers

Had the same problem and its some other setting on the amazon account which they refused to change for me unless I was actually in the US, and they saw thru my VPN trick and saying I was in San Fran.

The only way I got this to work was to set up a completely new account with Amazon, using a different email address, and setting it up using a VPN (may have been Hulu via browser).  This account has never had a non-US address associated with it.

 

Amazon are very hot on user locations when they want to be.
