Allow changing your windows id live location
I moved from UK to Switzerland 2 years ago. I bought a phone here a month ago. I now cannot use all the services.
Look, I'm sick of the fact that you can't change regions for your Windows Live ID. I have an xbox, pc and windows phone and I cannot tell you how infuriating it is to not be able to. At the end of the day if MS doesn't change this i'll simply by Apple products. Apple lets me change regions just fine, no hassle. It's no skin off my nose, carry on MS and like others I will jump ship because I don't have to put up with your policies. Thanks for nothing.
I moved to different country and I do not want to create a new account.
I'm sure that was not the intent of windows I'd lives,a over sight,they loves for their app.to be worldwide.

I can't see many apps in my country is this how Microsoft honorer us for choosing WP instead of android thanks MS
There are more and more US apps only available for US regions. It's very annoying, just remove the region process, it's absolutely useless

I dont see any reason why microsoft wont allow us to change our region.everyone tends to move out from a country onve in a while.
I have the same problem!
I moved to another country and now, I can't access the marketplace of my region.
I doesn't make any sense that they don't allow you to change the country you live in.
I can't sing in zune neither.
Please, put that functionality, It should be there!
Absolutely agree this limitation is stupid. I live in Switzerland, have a Swiss WinPhone8, and use a Swiss e-mail based Live acount (all by the book). I am not Swiss though.When I try to access the Music hub from the phone I get served a German language page - and I do not understand German. There is no langauge preference selection possible on the site even though a site supporting Switzerland should at least offer the 3 national languages. There seems to be a pervading arrogance that everyone in Switzerland speaks German. As far as I, and MS support, can work out this web page is served because of the IP address being used (it is not the phone because the same thing happens from my PC) but I think it is also determined by the registration location and other details of the Live ID account. Despite RBJ's comment below, changing the Region on the phone makes no difference to this behaviour. Come on Microsoft - change the stupidity. I do not mind being directed to a particular web site because of my location, but at least give me a free langauge choice when I get there. I will NOT be buying any Microsoft product from this site until it is fixed. Really, really dumb - talk about shooting oneself in the foot!
i cannot sign in my zune because its says there that the location of windows live id is not same here at my computer location
This is stupid. I want to buy apps, but i can't change location from US to my country. This means I can't add payment options and pay. Hello? I want to spend money! This restriction is hurting you badly Microsoft.
This is already possible, guys.
Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 can change region by the flick of a button. :)
Now only Xbox left who are still stuck in the past.
need this feature fast..
im stuck in the wrong place!!
