Default getting google play store on china SGS2

Im in china and I just bought a samsung galaxy s2, which was a huge improvement from my uk bought htc wildfire.

The biggest problem atm is that it doesn't come with android market/google play store. i have to put up with the crappy samsung apps store.

now i have downloaded google play store apk (latest one), put it on my phone, installed it.

I open it and it says:

"you must add an account to the device to continue. do you want to add one now?"

I press YES and nothing happens. Im returned to the home screen.

I have gone to the account settings and tried to create/login my google account but there is no add/create a google account option.

I heard there was a work around with just adding my google credentials into Microsoft Exchange Server account thing but this has failed me.

Any ideas how I can solve this problem? I really want to use Google Play Store rather than Samsung Appstore.

Thanks

For the account settings page of Google that you mentioned, is it
the Edit Google account page https://accounts.google.com/UpdateAccountRecoveryOptions?You should be able to add your cell phone number there.

Hope this helps.

hi zhanpeng1987,

did you end up working this problem out? I just bought a samsung galaxy player 5.0 and am having the exact same problem you just described.

Cheers!
