I had a Pre 2 activated in France and I bought many apps using a French credit card.
I switched to a Pre 3 that I had sent from the US to France in 2011, around the time HP killed webOS. I unlocked it in France and so assumed it was first activated in France with a French credit card.
There have been a few paid apps that I haven't been able to re-install to the Pre 3, and I had assumed it was because of device incompatibility. Thanks to App Tuckerbox, I didn't have to worry about - I could find and re-install all my old paid apps.
Recently, I've been having a problem (403) with App Tuckerbox that Rod believes is due to a change on the HP side. I looked more closely at my Pre 3 with Impostah:
- Activation: Catalog Settings: "United States (Palm)", "English"
- App Catalog: Check Access Country: "FR"
Here's my problem: I see Apps in the App catalog, but apparently not all: Although I've already purchased "Guitarist's Reference Pro & Guitar Tuner", the catalog tells me "This is not a valid HP webOS application" when I try to install (hitting catalog button from Preware). It doesn't exist in the App Catalog even though Preware shows it's for US and FR. Why is this?
I can still purchase apps with my French credit card - I just tried it now.
I'm about to experiment using a US credit card, and by changing the access country using GMMan's app, or doing both together but has anyone else had problems with a semi-working setup caused by "mismatched" activation country, credit card country and/or access country?
