    Hey all.

    So I switched to the WP platform when I got my Lumia 920. Love it.

    But I need more than the 7GB of skydrive space. I want to store my music on there.

    So I've tried to buy some but there are no options for me to purchase more.

    I am located in Canada, does this have something to do with it?

    Has anyone else in Canada (or anywhere else) successfully purchased more space?

    No such problem here in Seattle, WA. Perhaps you can Blame Canada?

    What's really strange is a big corporation not wanting to take your money. Do you have a Microsoft account setup yet? Also are you on live, hotmail or outlook? The MS account may need to be setup to get option outside of US. I'm just guessing but may confirm account is setup and a cc is attached and try it then.

    Just have to ask a dumb question: Is your LiveID Location set to a supported country and your Zune Pass region isn't in an unsupported country? Either one might bump the system into preventing you to obtain features that are limited in other locales.

    Depending on whether you chagned regions, you may need to change your account region or migrate it.
