I’ve mentioned a number of times before on this blog how irritating it is to be saddled with a Zune/Xbox Live/Windows Phone account that has the wrong country shown for my country of residence, and being totally unable to correct it.

The issue is now spelt out in detail over at the It Is Our Data web site, and there’s a petition set up asking Microsoft to rectify this shortcoming.

I’ve signed, and will be sending letters to Microsoft and the relevant Data Protection authority. Will you?

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
