    Default Android Marketplace and countries?

    I will sooner or later buy an Android phone but I am afraid of one thing: my country (Lebanon) is not listed in the countries that Marketplace support!
    What does that mean? I can't download free apps from there?
    Changing the country in the phone settings would be a solution or they will still see by my IP?

    From what iv read so far doing my research into Android,... Unsupported countries only get the free apps, so you would be unable to get paid apps.
    I wouldn't know if changing the country in phone settings would help or not.

    But i could be very wrong.

    In the third post,... The guy from Lebanon says
    I too have a google checkout account. Why not use the system on PayPal for example. I don't know what to do, but all I want is the ability to access all applications.
    So yeah,... i think you can have free apps but not the paid ones. But im sure you can find the .apk files for paid apps you want.

    Please note,... I do not condone warez but seems like you have no other option.

    Free apps would be more than enough!

    Bruv,... Have just found out that some of the custom roms for handsets have something called Market Enabler, to let you make full use of the Android Marketplace from anywhere.

    You can download it from this page,.. http://strazzere.com/blog/?tag=market-enabler ... So maybe it is possible to install onto standard stock roms.
