Why can I not install some items from the Android Market due to my country of residency?

Why does the Android Market site show these errors?

Many friends of mine from the same country (India) have been able to download and install the apps from the site, some with the same handset.

    Have you tried using a proxy?


    Select "Advanced Options" and chose a USA server.

        Can you clear your data in the market app and try another proxy or install a VPN. Do you have to install the app from Google?

        This looks like a good alternative: http://www.appbrain.com/app/marketenabler/ch.racic.android.marketenabler
