Hi all,

I've read on the Pandora site that the service is meant to be available to US residents only. They request a zipcode in order to verify a customers residence.

Whats the scoop for Slimbox users based outside the USA?

Has anyone from outside the US managed to register and use a Pandora account?

I'm hoping as with all things on the internet, just provide some random US zipcode, and so long as you've paid your subscription, noone really cares.???

Michael.

I would be interested in knowing as well.
It seems to be easy to register with a fake address.
But I don't think any non-us based users have gone as far as signing up
for a subscription yet?
(If payment is only by credit-card its billing address would usually
have to match your registration address.)

These services usually only start working best after you've used them
for a while, and I would not want to spend 30 days on Pandora only to
find it unusable at the end of that time...

If you're living in Germany you might not even have to cheat, because some
of Germany's zip codes also exist in the USA... I think there will always
be a way to cheat around that limitation. But it won't legalize your using
the service.

Give it a try. I can't remember what I entered ;-).
