My Question or Issue

Aparently I need to change my country settings to use Spotify for whatever reason. When I try to change the Country setting to Costa Rica, its says my Email address is already registered ..... yeah no idea what to do to sort this out so I can have music while I'm in Costa Rica.

 

Any help will be appreciated!

Got it to work with tech support's help. If anyone else runs into this problem, try to change the country settings in private tab where no data is stored. And see if that works for you!

 

Thanks for all your help!

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. You could try creating a temporary account for costa rica. This could help because it is free and you could set it to costa rica.

Please Like it means alot!!

I guess I could use my work email to create an account. I really only have the two email addresses

Hey @4thgenlude,

 

So you have followed the following instructions to change your country?


To change your settings for the country you’re in:

  1. Log in to your account page
  2. Click EDIT PROFILE
  3. Scroll down to Country and select your new country from the dropdown list.
    Note: Your new country only shows when you’re actually there.
  4. Click SAVE PROFILE.

 

Kinda weird that it says that your email address is already registered when you're only changing your country setting.

 

Best,

Felix

Yes I tried those directions. When I click the Save Profile button it pops up and says my email address is already registered. 

 

No idea why it says that..,

That's odd. Have you contacted @SpotifyCares yet? They are usually quite good at helping regarding to tech queries.

 

I hope they can help you!

I dont have twitter. Is there a normal way to get in touch with tech support? This community support is all I could find.

 

Thanks!

Sure, here's a way to contact tech support without Twitter: https://support.spotify.com/us/contact-spotify-support

 

Keep me posted!
