I set my country as UK to begin with, they didnt ask for any address. I did receive an email from Amazon asking if I wanted to change my country to FR as they noticed I was buying from France. I declined and said I commuted between the UK and France and since then I've had no problems.

I should just put any UK address in. I don't have a credit card with a UK address either.

When I try to do this, it wants a UK address....but I do not have a credit card with a UK address...Can I still do this?

Janes and Sevendaver1 - this is great news! According to Amazon it can't be done!
So, I just go into my amazon.fr account, gerer mon compte, parametres de pays....and then I just change pays of residence to Royaume Uni instead of France. Presumably , I don't need to put a UK address in there?
Once this is done, does my Kindle automatically look for new books to buy from amazon.co.uk?

I had no problem changing my kindle to be able to buy from amazon.co.uk. I simply logged on to my amazon account and selected manage my kindle and changed the country settings from France to the UK. It was very simple! I don't think I even had to put in an address just change the country.

No - I just have an amazon.co.uk voucher. Amazon have replied to my query and I cannot use the .co.uk voucher for my kindle. Irrespective of where the Kindle was bought (in my case. .co.uk), I can only buy books from amazon.fr. There is a possinbility of transferring the account to amazon.com but not the voucher.....
Am I first person to come across this? Surely not?
