    I'll get the my first WP7 device tomorrow and I just installed the zune software to be ready to sync some stuff once when phone finally arrives and among other things I tried to access the app store and no matter what link I click I'm always getting the: "Sorry the requested item isn't available in your location"

    WTF?! What's that suppose to mean? That I'll not be able to install even freeware applications?!? Without ability to install 3rd party app that I need the most this phone worth nothing!?

    there could be a possibility that; since you haven't really synced a WP7 device yet, it isn't letting you... I would presume you haven't synced a thing yet right?

    Where do you live? I've heard non-USA WP7 phones can get frustrating because of the restrictions. Before I had my phone I was able to browse the marketplace on the Zune desktop software, although I didn't try downloading anything. Hopefully it all works out for you.

    Im in Australia and I had the same annoying issue.

    I just did this:
    Within Windows | Restore Zune 4.0&rsquo;s &ldquo;missing&rdquo; features

    In the comments there is mention of what to do in the latest 4.2 release.

    You have to have a wp7 device registered on your zune software to download anything.
    It will all work out for you once you do that first sync.
