    Hi, I moved from Ireland to Australia, and need to change my GooglePlay store so I can download apps here. I have a Nexus5. I have done all steps advised ( Delete all of your payment methods from Google Wallet, and only add a card to one with a billing address located inside your desired country. Clear data from the Google Play Store application). However, I cannot do the last step which is to log out and then log back into my play account. When I go to remove account it says it will delete all messages, contacts and data from my phone. Will this come back when I log back in? Or is there another way to change my country? It is urgent I get these apps for work and also banking. Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central!

    Just make sure all your photos and contacts are backed up to Google. You can back up your messages with an app along with your call log. Just make sure you move the backup files to your PC just in case something happens.

    I am not sure you can switch back and forth among countries, especially when you already buy something on the current Google Play store. Maybe a new Gmail / Google Play account with the Australia address will be better
