    Unlink my Market account from default account or I will be force to Amazon AppStore

    I'm trying to get support for for my Suggestion on the Google support forum here is the link

    As the header read please unlink my Android Market account from the default account. I love the Android Market, but it's just silly to continue with this lock. So far I have only bought about 50 apps from the Android Market, it's a lot but not enough to stop me to change to the Amazon AppStore.

    I believe he's in India where there are restrictions on the market I'm assuming. Because there are restrictions he may not be able to buy certain apps or sale. Amazon doesn't have these types of restrictions.

    I don't think there's a way to unassociate the market from the account.

    But why unassociate anyway? What does that fix?

    I doubt they'll ever let you unassociate, the purchase licensing is tied in. If you wipe your phone to reset everything (or when you move to a new phone), if you re-use the same google credentials, you'll have the ability to download all your paid apps again but at no charge. If they let you change your Market account on the fly (which is what your suggestion would permit), then the piracy would be too easy.

    On the assumption that Market account details are not your real concern... what _is_ your real concern? That is, what do you think would be better for you if you could separate the account details? What is it you're trying to solve?

    Just a heads up, Amazon does the same thing. All apps bought are tied to your Amazon account. Not only that, you are required to be logged in to use their apps, thus you can't use their apps without a connection.

    Are you saying you can't use Amazon-downloaded apps in Airplane Mode? That doesn't sound right. Amazon is just a retailer of apps. Once installed, Amazon's job is done.

    Have to read the fine print:
    Because your application purchases are tied to your Amazon.com account, you will not be able to use apps if you have signed out from the Amazon Appstore. To use the apps that you've purchased, please sign back into your account on the Amazon Appstore app.
