    Guys please help...

    I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 from amazon UK but many of the apps are not appearing in the market, even popular ones like Skype, Whatsapp, ..., when I try to download it after scanning the bar code I get the message "Item Not Found".

    FYI in the settings of the Android Market the filter for the Apps is set to "High Maturity" and I tried to change it to show "Everything" but I think it gets reset to "High Maturity" when I close the settings.

    So I figured if I reset the Sales Code I could unlock everything.

    However when I tried the solution (#*272*IMEI#) on my phone I cannot change the sales code option, I tried pasting the code XSG but when I click Install I get a message "Must be THREE chars."

    Please help me to find a solution for this, I dont want to look for each app in softpedia or other websites so I can download popular apps.

    Do you think rooting the phone could be an alternative solution?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Google blocks certain apps in the market based upon your location. Best thing to do is search online, download to PC then move to sd card in phone and install from there.

    You can just use Market Enabler to switch over to a US market. Requires root though.

    I'm wondering if the same thing is going to happen to mine, I put my order in via ExpansysUSA's website. I live in South Florida (Miami) on at&t mobility.
