    Heyy i`m from Canada , and i jsut bought a 16GB ipod Touch 2G from Futureshop thinking that I could buy apps , buy it turns out that itunes doesn`t let you use PayPal in Canada .

    I went to buy 2 $20 itunes gift cards from futureshop , and redeemed it when i got home , but stoopid itunes wouldn`t let me use it because i`m in Canada DD: <

    so i`m wondering if it`s possible for me to send the itunes store credit ($40) to someone in the united states , and then i switch countries . After i switch countries , the person can send it back ?

    will that work ? can i send the gift to someone in a different country ?

    anyone willing to help me do that ?

    thanks ,
    vapour

    Maybe just setting your account settings in iTunes to USA instead of Canada, you can use Paypal

    For future reference.
    Buy prepaid visa giftcards.
    You can use them for online iTunes shopping.

    You can get them at shoppers drug mart.
    It's just like a gift card , but in visa form.
    Prepaid of course.
    So you can't go over limits or anything.
    No monthly bills.

    You can't use Visa giftcards, I tried.
    Unless it changed. (Tried using one 2 months ago)

    Well , I used a prepaid mastercard.
    But I assume it's the same thing mostly.

    I use google, and got thishttp://www.giftcardblogger.com/itunes-gift-card-questions-answers/

    I checked the date of the website, and the last time it was updated was 2008, so not much out of date.

    I don't know how you used a Mastercard though
