Can I use CardValet on the phone I brought from their home country?
During a new phone activation process, you select your resident country. From an App store perspective, this selection determines your native country. When publishing an app on Apple or Google App stores, the publisher designates the territories where the app will be available. CardValet is set up as a United States app. Smartphone users will only be able to download apps that are available in their native territory (or country) even if they happen to be visiting or relocating to a foreign country where different apps may be available.
This has the following implication for consumers.
- If the native country set up on the phone and the app territory do not match, the consumer cannot use the app on their phone.
- CardValet is specifically set up for the US, so phones set up for any other territory cannot use the CardValet app.
