timmy1 I now have direct access to paid apps on my Telus Milestone. We just lagged Rogers by a couple of days.

thatdaveguy The Nexus One works on Bell/Telus as well despite what the Goog says.

jvincent Interesting. I might have to put one on my Xmas list.

Veee The Nexus One is officially shipping to Canada now (Rogers 3G only).


Edit: It looks like the T-Mobile (Wind) version can be shipped to Canada too.

timmy1 No love for Telus users yet. It's still pretty easy to get paid apps if you have a sim card from a U.S. carrier (I use an AT&T sim), but it would be nice to be able to get there directly.

jvincent Yeah, I saw that yesterday when I did my weekly-ish troll of the market for new stuff.

I haven't looked too hard at paid apps yet but I doubt I'd pay more than $1 for anything. All the neat stuff is free from Google anyway.

gnunn Paid apps are working for me and it's been confirmed in several blogs and forum posts. Only problem I have is my market application doesn't show the top paid tab, one user claims it will appear after a factory refresh but that is something I would prefer to avoid.

thatdaveguy Can anyone else confirm ?

Stargazer Just saw today that full paid apps are now available in the Canadian Android market.

Stargazer Yes, it does work. The Mobile Defense app lets you keep track of and secure your cell phone in case it gets stolen. It's supposed to only work in the US (must have US phone number to activate), but when I inserted my Rogers SIM card back in the phone, I was notified by email that my SIM card had been replaced and that the phone was in Canada.

Nuje Does it work once you put your Rogers SIM back into the phone once your back in Canada?

Stargazer Went across the border to Washington state yesterday and stuck my pre-paid AT&T SIM card into my Rogers Android phone. The Android Market had all the apps that I could not find up here in Canada: free and paid ones.

I downloaded one of the free US-only apps (Mobile Defense) and installed it no problem. It works fine on the phone.

Stargazer Only free apps are available, meaning if you like the "light" version of an app, you have no ability to buy and use the full version.

You said full access to the market is restricted. How much of the market can be accessed?

Stargazer I bought an unlock code off of ebay for $6 to unlock my Roger's Eve that I picked up earlier this month.

Worked no problem, although I had to stop into an AT&T store so they could enter the APN settings on the phone to access the 3G network. Telephone support had no idea what I was talking about, but the person at the store knew as soon as I showed him the screen.
