    Hello Guys,

    Now You can install Samsung Or HTC Collection's apps on Your Lumia devices.

    Hello guys i found a trick to install samsung or Htc collection apps on YOur Lumia Phone. Its Amazing.
    A small Trick is giving access to all apps from samsung and HTC collection.
    And more over you can install Nokia Pro Camera on LUmia 820 by doing the same trick.
    I have Lumia 820 and now i have alomost all applications from Samsung, HTC and NOkia.
    The only thing you need to do is connect to a wifi network and enable proxy for that wifi connection. Please follow instructions bellow.

    1. Change your phone region to United States

    2. Connect to a WiFi network

    3. Under Settings - WiFi, click on the WiFi network you are connected to

    4. Switch 'Proxy' to on. Now type "117.135.139.179" into "Server/URL". In "Port", type in "8888", then click on the tick at the bottom of the screen

    7. Go to the Store and click on 'Nokia Collection' - now you will see all apps from HTC, Samsung and Nokia all together. install them all :P

    Enjoyeeee Guys :D

    Yes You may get that problem (I got it too). But dont worry when it gives any error message simply go back and tap on any other application. keep on taping on all apps and you will see an option to install after some time. i think its a glitch from the microsoft server. Install them all before they disappear

    Go to Settings>language+region. Change Country/Region to United States. You need to restart the phone.
    Once you are done with Installing the apps, go back to your orignal region settings..

    What makes you Nokia users think you are entitled to the exclusive apps from HTC and Samsung, don't you have enough apps of your own?

    I'm guessing, the same things that makes HTC and Samsung users feel entitled to install Nokia apps, using this same method.

    This in theory should allow HTC and Samsung owners get Nokia Apps as well so it goes both ways.

    Besides the App Folder to me personally is useless as when I think about what apps i need as a surplus on my home screen. Nothing comes to my mind however some may find use for it. Also there are connectivity shortcut apps in the store and some are free to boot.

    Where did you see me say it was right? I simply stated that it works the other way too, so don't single out Nokia users. Every person can choose for themselves what they consider right/wrong.

    The point is that Samsung and HTC users aren't actively bragging about it though, are they?

    Yes, they have. Try looking through the forums. This is hardly the first thread pertaining to this proxy trick. Also, this is not the only way to accomplish installing other manufacturers' apps; just a simpler way.

    And, I'd hardly call it bragging. I'd say, sharing. If anything, HTC and Samsung users benefit from this more than Nokia users, since Nokia has a larger base of exclusive apps.

    You don't have to convince me, or anyone else, whether it's right/wrong. If it's wrong for you, don't do it. I'm sure others will do what they decide to do.

    You can bet that Microsoft are watching the accounts using this "hack", patch the flaw that allows this, remove the apps that you shouldn't have and bans accounts for violating the terms of use.
