    So it looks like the paid apps are finally available in Canada. I can't believe this has finally happened!
    At this moment you wouldn't see them by browsing categories but a search returns now paid apps as well free ones.

    I finally have access to all the apps I bought while my phone was rooted. This is definitely a relief.

    Now, to get a rootable phone, and Wi-Fi tethering...

    How do we pay for apps? Do we have to set up an account or does it get automatically get billed to our phone bills?

    So do I just set up a Google account with a credit card and just buy apps? Kind of like setting up an itunes account? Sorry yeah, I have an itouch.
    Thanks for the help.

    Every time I try to purchase an app, I am directed to a screen that requires my Google account information. I log in using either my standard Gmail account OR my Google Apps account, and in both cases after about 5 minutes an error message is shown indicating that my phone was unable to establish a reliable connection to Google servers.

    Any ideas?
