    Perhaps it's my cookies. They were off. I will update.

    I can download from here right?

    Spotify seems to have re-opened free registrations

    THe instructions above are a bit basic and there is nothing (I can find) on the www.daveproxy.co.uk/ website with anything detailed on using their service.

    There is a proxy option within the Spotify preferences. Is this where I need to enter www.daveproxy.co.uk?

    I'm in the UK anyway at the moment so I'm not able to test this for myself. Setting up a spotify account was easy enough, but I want to be able to continue to use the service when I return home (Thailand).

    Thanks in advance.

    As long as you are a registered uk user you can use it anywhere

    I use it everyday in the US, it's not a replacement for iTunes, but it's a nice complement.

    Do you have a free or premium account? the Spotify website states a free account only works for 14 days from abroad, you then have to buy a premium account

    You don't need an invitation

    Follow the instructions above, but instead of using daveproxy to pretend you are in the UK, use http://proxify.eu/ (Spotify appear to have blocked daveproxy). Click this link and then enter https://www.spotify.com/en/get-started/ that should take you to the Spotify create account page (i just tested it from here in Thailand and got the correct page). You will still need a UK postcode, http://www.postcodesearch.org.uk/ pic one at random.

    This account will only work for 2 weeks though, unless you pay a premium membership fee or have access to a proxy you can run all your Spotify traffic through. ANYONE ELSE have any instruction on that? My account will freeze up in about a week. Can I get a friend to log in from the UK every 2 weeks?
