Nespresso...

Yes, the Paypal thing on Windows Phone is stupid. I have the Paypal Android app so they don't mind having it outside the US.

Amazon's WP7.5 app was region locked to certain countries as well. After constant nagging and telling them that's it available in NZ for iPhone, why not WP7.5? They finally added it for NZ.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Based on the reviews, it does not look like we are missing out at all.

Does anyone have any luck with the Pandora Radio App?

On my iPhone its region locked, and you need a US itunes account. I tried to sign up for one, but got the "you need to talk to one of our Apple customer representatives" which scared me off.

So i tried it on my brothers samsung galaxy SIII, and it wasn't available in the play store, so i tried the download from internet thing, and that failed too. Also tried the web browser because hes got flash, but it simply showed the mobile page. (I need some app/setting to spoof the browser agent).

Please start a new thread for this. It has nothing to do with Android.

The Pandora app works just fine (on Android), the trick is in installing it. You need to use an app like MarketAccess (root required) to make the Play Store think that you're in the US. It'll then let you install the app.

I've done this on my phone and Pandora works great (apart from the annoying ads that take up half the screen).

You also mention your iphone, so I still suggest you start a new thread.

Actually I think there already is one somewhere in here, I know this has been discussed already this year.... a search will help.
