i bought a kindle fire HD for my mother and only now realized that amazon's app store requires a US based credit card. I dont have one of those. I really just need to install a file explorer so i can side load apps, but if i cant do that, i might have to return it. Any recommendations? Thanks

nope, you need that card.

i have the regular one that i purchased in 2010 and also the ipad that i used my card on and i'm able to download any app (though my wife mostly use them, i tend to go for the free ones and if i like i upgrade it after)

maybe you can (if you have) let a relative in the US give you their card info and you can register it with that.
tons of free apps, there is no monthly/yearly fee so they /you wont have to worry about getting billed.

also , i don't think you may be able to retun it if there is no actual problem with the device as if ordered through a skybox, you may not have informed them it would have been used outside the US.


it's a nice device (gonna get the large HD after all the christmas rush)

This was why i went Galaxy Tab instead of Kindle Fire.

Dislike the Kindle UI as well. Even with Prime, you can't take advantage of the content outside the US.
