connecting to app world while abroad

[ Edited ]

Hey,

I live in and bought my playbook in the UK.. I'm currently in finland and was trying to download an app on app world, however when it comes to signing in with my BB ID it gives me an error and wont login, Everything else connects to the internet via wifi fine, just not the app world BB ID login. Anyone got any ideas?

 

*Edit* I got it to connect with the BB ID, but when trying to purchase anything via appworld it says "authenticating" then does nothing else, it eventually just stops authenticating and goes back to the app page on appworld.

Not sure about App World, but many ecommerce sites that have regional distribution license issues will use the country-code on the credit card registered to the account to override out-of-country geocode IP blocks. ..?
