Isn't it awkward that you feel so left out, because you can't download that awesome game from the OVI Store?
Now you don't have to be anymore!
I've found a nice workaround for you all people
What you need is:
- A laptop with WiFi and a LAN port (or a PC with a wireless card that can be used as a AD HOC network and also a LAN Port)
- LAN Cable
We're going to act as if we're in the US so we can download the US apps for our devices
First of all, remove your simcard and change your phone language and regional settings to English (United States), otherwise it wont work!!!
Now download Tunnel Bear for your PC/MAC
Go to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] download and install it.
If you're using a laptop that is connected with the wireless, disconnect with your wireless and plug in the LAN cable into your router to your laptop.
Now run TunnelBear.
Create a free account so you can connect with tunnlebear (free account lets you use 500mb a month, should be fair enough for the ovi games)
Log in with your TunnelBear account and turn the dialer from the TunnelBear app to "ON" and on "US".
(Be sure to disable your firewall if you have connection problems)
Next, create a new ad hoc network.
Windows users: Go to network center > New connection > Ad hoc network
I'm using Windows, so I dont know where the options are on a mac...
It will ask you if you want to share the internet. Just ignore that. Close the connection wizard once you've created a new ad hoc network.
Once that's done, we need to share the internet from TunnelBear (thats why you had to ignore it before, otherwise it wouldn't work)
Go to Network center > Adapter settings > Right click on TunnelBear > Properties > Share > and enable the internet sharing > and select the "Wireless network connection" from the dropdown menu > click on OK
Now remove the OVI account on your Nokia device.
Use your laptop and change your language preferences of your browser.
for Firefox users:
Firefox > Options > Content > Language (choose..) > Move [en-us] to the top > OK
Now go to the ovi store and register a new account:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Be sure that the country is United States!
Once that is done, connect your Nokia device with the ad hoc network that you made and log in with your new OVI account on your Nokia device...
Once you're done, and you want to revert things back:
Turn off TunnelBear and be sure that you disable the Internet Sharing from the Adapter settings
Go to Network center > Adapter settings > Right click on TunnelBear > Properties > Share > and disable the internet sharing > OK
Don't forget to login with your own OVI Account back on your device (if preferred)
