    Update.

    I've finally activated my Wirecard account, but the Catalog app rejects my new "virtual" Mastercard saying that it's probably a fraud.
    (I guess it's because the number doesn't match with the selected country, which is USA)

    I'm sad. Really really sad.

I cannot register the credit card and therefore cannot pay any app.

    I am totally frustrated. Without apps, a Palm Pre is not comparable to any other smartphone, including I-phone, Symbian, or even Windows Mobile phones.

    If Palm does not fix this, I will NEVER buy a Palm device anymore (I've been a Palm IIIx, Palm V, Palm m-515 and a Palm Tx user).
    I've been told by Palm support that this failure (only USA, Mexico and Canada in the country filed when registering a credit card) is not particular to my case. They say Palm is working on it.

    Let's give them some time...

    I've got an O2 Palm Pre bought in Germany via ebay.
    I don't khnow if it was previously activated in Germany.
    When it arrives, I've made my personal Palm Profile setting it to Italy (PRE is set to italian language)
    I alway was able to see app store: I'm pretty sure it is German App Store (initially many free app was only in german).
    I've correctly downloaded 1.4.1 firmware, and since one week I can see paid apps too.
    I try to download one of them: no results! It seems it doesn't accept my italian credit card (VISA, I receive a message talkin' of a stole or fraudolent CreditCard!)
    I've opened a WireCard account (MASTERCARD, Wirebank is Germany).
    It's been ACCEPTED, and now I'm able to pay and download apps.

    I'd interested in trying to connect to USA App Store, but I'm not to be able to pay apps from it....

    I quote the request above! I'm in the same situation as yours (in Italy with a German Pre)

    It's very simple:
    - go there: Wirecard
    - click on "Register" red button (bottom of page, or click here: https://secure.mywirecard.com/wireca...anguageCode=it)
    - follow steps to register (requires 10 minutes, an another credit card from which transfer money, or alternatively a bank account)
    - I've choosed to have a virtual MASTERCARD credit card and I've transferred 10 on it.
    - at the end you have all codes (CC number, PIN, date) of a new virtual CreditCArd, but this is a "German" credit card
    - then I've registered it on my PRE Account, and it's been accepted. Remember to choose Germany as predefined country.

    I finally have purchased SplashID (that I've since some years in PalmOS)

    I couldn't guarantee it work for all cases. It works in mine: O2 Palm PRE bought in Germany, Palm Profile set to Italy and PRE Language set to Italian, 1.4.1 firmware. Carrier: WIND IT

    Hope I can help someone. But I hope Palm works on this ... it's incredible ...

    i guess also that using a proxy for credit card info might not be the wisest.

    Entropay doesn't use an address at all, so it doesn't matter. Entropay won't work.

    anyone have any ideas of how one could use wirecard from an unofficial country?

    or any other ideas? I made a topic in the apps section of the forum about how much this is ****ing me off. Anyone interested in getting together and nutting out a problem, like in a communal way? monetarily?

    Well, since there hasn't been any significant progress on how to get paid apps (easily) on an existing WebOS device activated outside Palm territory I'm seriously considering getting me a German Pre Plus in Germany and activate it there with an O2 SIM and a new profile. Then I'll use my current Dutch KPN SIM again but should be able to see paid apps. I read at a Dutch Palm site: Duitse PALM werkt niet in Nederland. Hij is wel unlocked. - Palmclub: Forums - alles over de Palm Pre met webOS, de Palm Treo smartphone of PalmOS pda that, as expected from the billing countries in the app catalog, Dutch Credit Cards are supported out of the box!!

    So just to be sure. I need to activate in Germany, with official supported SIM, language put on German, and create a new Palm Profile, right?

    And will I see English paid apps in the catalog when I switch language to English?

    Is there a way to look at the German app catalog on a web site. So I can look at the paid apps here at PreCentral. Just to be sure that the apps I want are there? Oops, apparently yes: webOS appcatalog

    Mmm, I'm tempted to get a Pre Plus
