Hi and ni hao Evilberto.
Are you in China now and using a Chinese carrier, like China Mobile or Unicom? It's free apps only in China, no paid at all, no music or movies either.
You might be able to get around the block by spoofing your IP address with a proxy or VPN. But it might not work if Google is still seeing the phone as say "China Mobile Google Nexus 4" because of the SIM.
How did you manage to buy a Google Nexus phone in China? AFAIK
it's not officially distributed and sold here, although there may be grey imports.
