Though it might not directly solve your issue, you might also want to take a look at similar questions, e.g. How to change country ? –  Izzy Nov 16 '12 at 18:10

Do as follows:

  1. Go to SettingsApplicationsSamsung Apps and then tap the clear data and clear cache buttons.
  2. Back to all applications, find Samsung Apps and click on it. Select now the correct country.

Note: The correct country should be where you currently are, or the country in which you registered first. Try first country first, and if it is still does not work - simply repeat steps 1-2 above with the other country.

Hope it works for you!

Go to Application Manager under Settings and clear the app's stored info. Then, restart the app, and select the proper country.

I got out of a Middle Eastern language and back to English by pressing: Apps > Settings > Language and input > Samsung keyboard settings (and OK) > English UK.

Welcome to the site. The OP is not trying to change language, he's trying to use the Samsung App Store. Does your answer have anything to do with that? –  Dan Hulme Sep 22 '13 at 6:51

You can't change the app store country, it's determined by the carrier you use. you can try searching the internet for the app you want in apk. In china facebook is blocked and google play doesn't allow you to download it, but it's freely available elsewhere online in apk format.

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Guess you've missed some points concerning this question. You still can can e.g. use a proxy abroad to make your device appear "elsewhere than you are". Apart from that, 2 different answers point out how to change the country within the app, one of them was accepted as solution. Did anything change? Does the solution no longer work? And who asked about "Google Play" here, and what has that to do with Samsung App Store? –  Izzy Jul 17 '14 at 16:15

Open samsung app, click samsung galaxy app link, read the URL at the end it should say "country code= ", delete the country code you see, press enter, it will open a page saying select the country. I hope it helps, let me know how it goes.

I have the solution!

  • Purchase a used SIM card from eBay from a carrier from a country where the Samsung app store is allowed.
  • Insert the SIM and connect to WiFi and the Samsung app store would then work and you can download everything you want.
  • When you're done remove the SIM and put back in your carrier's SIM card.

You can try un-installing the app (in Application Manager), it will ask if you want to replace the un-installed version with the "factory version". When that is complete you should be able to select the country of your choice.


I also un-installed all updates on the app before I un-installed the app, I'm not sure if this helped with the outcome.
