Even if I couldn't do that, there are plenty of sources for epub books so I can copy them to the SD card and get the Nook to read them from there (I thinks it's called side-loading).
My question is, can I register the Nook at all from Argentina? I read on this forum that you'd need to get an IP address and a fisical US address... how can I get that?
I mean, even if I could get behind a proxy or something to get a US IP, where do I get the shipping/billing address? I know it sounds dumb, but honestly I got no idea.
I read someone suggested usunlock, but that's for buying and shipping, I just would need to register it.
Any clues?
Thanks in advanced
You can register your Nook anywhere in the world.
You can buy books using your PC and a VPN like Hotspot Shield (free) or alwaysVPN ($8.50).
You can use any valid US address as shipping and billing address. Just google something (for example a hotel in New York). Nothing will be send to this address.
