    is there a way to make my DHD to 'think' that I'm in a country where I won't get the 'this item can't be installed in your device's country' error WITHOUT rooting?

    I think theres something you can download from the market that allows you to download apps that are not available in your region... not sure what it is, but Im sure someone on here will!

    The only way I can think of doing it is checking the developer's website - many offer them there.

    The amazon app store actually works perfectly here in England. However, you need an amazon.com account with card details and an address etc.

    I think plants vs. zombies will be coming to the normal market a few weeks after release so it's not that far off. (Although it won't be free like it was on the amazon market as far as I'm aware).

    Not bothered about paying. Tried to pay for it using Amazon and it gave me the response that it isn't available in my area (UK) :mad:

    No but I mean even for the free app of the day, a US credit card is still required, not a US IP or any info from the phone. Even if you're not paying for stuff, that and the address seem to be how they authenticate you're from the US, meaning a solution like market enabler likely wouldn't work.
