Amazon Android App Store "not available in your region"
So after literally counting down the days until the latest "Angry Birds" installment became available, my 7 year old woke me up early and we raced downstairs this a.m. to download it. The developer had announced a few weeks ago the android version would only be available through the new Brazilian River android app store. Fair enough - spent the better part of an hour setting up a new Brazilian River account, downloading the Brazilian River app store app, configuring everything (including, of course, providing credit card info. despite the app being free), etc etc etc.
Finally the moment of truth - with a 7 year old beside himself with excitement looking over my shoulder, I hit "purchase app" from the Brazilian River app store and...
"not available in your region" pops up
It's been about an hour now and, having sent a scathing email to the Brazilian River company and the developer, I've calmed down somewhat - any ideas as to a workaround? I've tried using a US address for the Brazilian River account and using a VPN to try to fool the Brazilian River company into thinking I'm in the US, but no go. I suspect there's something in the phone that's telling the Brazilian River company I'm attempting to download an app in Canada - anything like a VPN for phones?
