    So I can't download ANY apps at all. Turns out the Marketplace isn't supported in my country. I made my location and system locale set to the US but it still won't download..

    and if ever I do get to download anything, they're all free apps. I need a US credit card number to buy apps. :|

    I love Windows Phone but this experience is just killing it. Right now, the phone feels like a useless brick.

    What country are you in and did you buy the phone in your country or did you import it?

    You can normally buy prepaid Visa cards on eBay.

    Set your Windows Live Mail account to USA and use real zip codes and whatnot. Then it'll work. That's the way I've done it.

    I got my phone in the Philippines, but the phone's from T-Mobile USA. It's an unlocked version since I didn't have problems sending SMS here.

    palandri and justop26, thanks for the suggestions!

    You can try to register a Philippinian credit card, just need to specify US postcode. :-)
    Also you can try to change your Live ID location to USA, but I doubt they have fixed it.(Few months ago it was impossible to edit your location once you set it up) I did same mistake at the beginning and I just reset the phone. (If you don't have any apps, reseting the phone, shouldn't be big of a deal)
