Linking the account to the respective other country now works in both directions by simply clicking the button.

I just ran into a geographic restriction.
On Kindle Fire HD:
When switching to the German account, I can't buy at all = "country settings not supported".
When switching to the US account, I get one step closer = "billing address and payment don't match". I guess, I could circumvent this with gift card...

So, obviously it doesn't change restrictions.
Question is, whether I could link to the US without having had a US address before...

Maybe this all has changed for me, because of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" I've ordered from the US 1 week ago?
I had ordered some Kindles from the US before, but this had been before the international versions = ca. 2009.
And there are differences between my 7" Fire HD from Amazon Germany and my 8.9" from Amazon US: I can access lovefilm Germany on the "German" Fire HD, but not on the "US" Fire HD; although both are within the same account with the very same settings.
