    Hi,

    I have just bought a N1 and was surprised when I realised I can only install free apps onto it (I live in Brazil).

    Is there a way of buying those apps from Brazil? I don't want to root the phone (for now).

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Nope you're stuck I'm afraid, it's free only or root for you.

    I had to root mine to get over this problem :(

    However, a lot of the developers have their own web-sites where you can buy a particular app. There is also the slideme market where you can buy some apps.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Would I overcome that limitation by using a US VPN?

    Has anyone tried that?

    Cheers

    I haven't tried it, but I would love to hear how you get on with it!

    You could go to androidplayground as well, they have a decent selection of apps for a decent monthly fee.
