    Hi, I cant actually help but I have the same problem, have you managed to solve the issue? I cant seem to use google maps or street view, or any sky services because the dam thing thinks I am in China.

    I really regret buying this

    Every tablet I have purchased when I first turned it on asked what country I was in, then it went through a setup process where I selected time zone, keyboard, etc.
    I have never used Android 4.0 yet so it may be different.
    What version of Android does your tablet run? Maybe if we know that we can figure out the rest.
    Also is your gps turned on. If not, try turning it on in settings. Not the gps app but the function.
    Maybe of it is on the tablet will see that it is not in china and auto correct itself.

    As far as the market is concerned... use the apps management is SETTINGS to wipe out the current data in the market app, THEN restart it and do whatever setup it asks for...

    Have you set up your timezone, etc yet? They ALWAYS start out in the china timezone... When you 'factory reset' it will go BACK to china.
    Always.

    As to the location/gps, there are SOOOOO MMMAAANNNNYYY threads about this... You MUST enable the GPS and give it enough time to lock into AT LEAST 4 satellites... THEN it will change the location on the MAPS, etc so you dont live in China.

    Try these things... they should help.
    :D

    Alot of the problems you'll find is that even if you set your tablet to uk it may still not show all apps cos it wont be on googles compatibility list.
    The way to get round this is to "side load" the apps.
    This just means finding the .apk and downloading it, then install it.

    For instance, search google from the browser for "youtupe.apk", (dont use the quote marks),
    download it then tap on the .apk and it will install

    Hope this helps

    to gain full market apps paid and free you need to root your tablet and alter the build.prop and framework.jar files.
