We have been waiting for an answer from the forum's conclave of experts, on the problem of countries that are not supposed to have Playbooks under Blackberry's political ideologies,   but none has come yet




I would suggest you try pretending to be in the UK. Answer all the questions as if you were in UK. Come back if it works.
