I am getting error for almost all the apps while I am trying to install from web android market (market.android.com), it gives error "This item cannot be installed in your device's country.". But same time If I tries to install same application from my mobile then it installs successfully. So does anybody have any idea why it's giving this error ? (Note : I had installed new market and then uninstalled it. This problem starts after installation of new market only).

Mobile model : Samsung Galaxy 3

Country : India

  • You could try Market Enabler to fake being in the US and see if that helps, though it doesn't explain why this happens. Aug 4 '11 at 23:55
  • Can you check if there are more than one device registered in your market account?

This is because the device location is detected from the SIM card in use.

I'm not sure how the web market location is detected. Perhaps look at using a proxy.

But if you wish your change your SIM location check this out: https://market.android.com/details?id=ch.racic.android.marketenabler


Such sites have geographic filters so you may need to access those sites in mobile which passes the IP barrier.
