    I have a question. I live in Canada and as you know the gift cards don't work on the App Store. If I made a new account saying I was from the U.S but then using my gift card would that change anything? Or does it actually have to do with the card?
    Thanks

    if you create a new account and provide the information that youre from the US then the gift card should work

    Two things,
    1) AFAIK, Gift cards can only be redeemed from the country it was brought from.
    2) I have used my Gift Card to buy stuff from the App store, thats on the PC

    Apple claims that due to restrictions on selling software in Canada - NO App store purchases will be allowed using iTunes Gift Cards - including the 2.0 Upgrade.

    Why this is the case considering I bought the January App Pack for iPod Touch with a gift card and no problems - is beyond me. But that's the fact.

    No credit card on file? No upgrade or Apps for you.

    Is horsecrap.
