comment Which market am I currently in?
This is the first time I hear anyone suggesting changing the location of your Google account. Note that Google uses your credit card as well as your IP address and SIM card, so event if you are browsing the UK site, but don't have a UK-issued credit card, you can't purchase anything from there. A good way to tell between markets is by looking at the currency being displayed. (£ for UK)

comment Other appsare terminated when I try to copy an auth code from the Google Authenticator
In other words, attempt to login from the app, enter the Google account username/password. When asked for the verification code, press home, the open up authenticator, long press on the code and select copy to clipboard. Now press home again and go back to the Stack Overflow app. select the text field, long press, and select paste.

comment How can I auto-rotate calendar when rotating my Android -phone?
Can you lease specify the device you are using (e.g. HTC Nexus One), the Android version (e.g. Jelly Bean), and whether you are using the stock Calendar app? This will help people answer your question.

comment Is there a in-built setting to login to public hotspots?
Did you try going to a generic webpage? Most redirect Google.com to the login page if you are not authenticated.

comment Android in app purchase issue: You already own this item
Sometimes this happens when there is an error while completing the transaction. Can you do the following: Settings->Apps->All->Google Play Store press Clear data and Clear cache, then check if the issue is resolved?

comment Android Password Recovery + 2 Step Auth. What happens?
I have tested it on a Galaxy Nexus running ICS and another running Jelly Bean, and on a Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean. There might be a possibility that this was different on Android 2.3 but I don't think so.
