I am from India. I bought a factory unlocked Pre 2 from ebay, which is in transit to me, right now. I have been looking at the forum and found out that App Catalog Access is location locked, which is set when you first make palm profile, location will be determined by the carrier. What I get is that if I install any Indian Carrier SIM card and setup palm profile, I would be locked to India as location forever and won't be able to access US App Catalog.
Is that correct ? Is there any way I can have access to US App Catalog ? Like setting up palm profile by inserting a US Carrier SIM, etc.
I already have a Veer, which I bought from ebay as well, but it was not factory unlocked, rather seller must have unlocked it himself. I am not sure, but when I first powered on Veer, I made palm profile with Indian Carrier SIM inside, and my palm profile shows a US number and US as country. I haven't used Veer yet, so I don't know much about App Catalog for now.
