I'd like to get an account for the Ad service, so I filled in the form. I live in Holland, so i chose Netherlands as my country. Now the form keeps whining about State being a required field... we don't have any states here, only provinces. I tried all kinds of things, filling in nothing, just a '-' , different province names, even American state names, but it keeps telling me 'This field is required'. Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm in the Netherlands aswell and signed up for the AdService last monday (jun20).
I encounterd exactely the same problem concerning the required state field ...
(makes you wonder about the quality of those developers, doesn't it ?....) and the good news is that I finally managed to get past this error...The bad news however is that I have no idea what I changed in the end to make it pass.. (makes me wonder about my own quality ) Probably like you I tried all kind of combinations and suddenly it worked. The only thing I clearly remember that for this succesfull attempt the state-field was empty ... So this is probably not of much help ...but maybe you could give it another try....

After getting no replies here I sent an email to RIM. They told me they we're having difficulties with registrations outside North America, and it would probably be fixed in 24-48 hours. I tried it last evening and it worked, so you changed nothing, RIM did . Anyway, its ok now, i'm currently waiting for my login code.
