    hi, i have a question regarding the ipod touch 3g.

    if i purchase it from amazon, and i live in Bruges (near Brussels in Belgium), will i have all the functions i would have had in the usa? i don't mean charging or anything (i already have a local charger), but functions like internet access or the app store? will i have normal access?

    anyway, my question is: what won't i be able to do with an american ipod touch 3g in europe, that i would have been able to do in the usa?
    btw: it's the 32gb version if that makes a difference.

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure you can do everything. The main concern is the appstore but it depends on where you set the country when you make your iTunes account

    the iTunes Account depends on your credit card number.

    great! thanks, i'll order it this evening. hope it's worth buying... i never owned an ipod touch before, but i heard good things, and 280$ is a bargain for 32gb and a touch screen.

    have 2 choices: buying an ipod touch 2nd gen 32gb new + 3 cases for 270$ shipped
    or buying an ipod touch 3rd gen 32gb new shipped for 340$
    which is a better choice?

    Depends on whether you prefer to go for the faster performance of the 3g or the better 2g offer... Do you have any use for so many cases, btw? If not, might as well go for the 3g instead...

    alright... all set to order, b&h offers international shipping, and it'll total 325$ (approx. 220euros, and if you know the ipod touch here costs 280euros, it makes a difference). just checking, but will i need some sort of special cable to make sure i don't fry my ipod on the 220v net? or will my charger i bought in belgium do?
