I bought this Samsung S3 as an unlocked ATT phone. When we try to down load some apps, we are told it is not available in our country? Therefore I want to change the country code on this phone.
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Sign into your Google Payments account at payments.google.com and click the Settings icon in the top corner.

2. Click Edit next to the "Home Address" listed and update the address (please note this is different from the "Address Book" which holds shipping addresses).

3. Open the Play Store and navigate to any item available for download.

4. Click to begin a download until you reach the "Accept and buy" screen (no need to complete the purchase)

5. Close the Play Store, force stop and then clear data for the Google Play Store application (Settings > Apps > Google Play Store > Force Stop then Clear Data) or clear your browser cache

6. Re-open the Play Store. You should now see the Play Store that matches your default payment method’s billing country.
