    no, i think they check your ip address and only allow you to do it in those areas.
    I had the same issue so i went to RBC bank and got a prepaid Visa, they cost 3 bucks and you can load as much up on it as you want. I have been using it for all of my needs from apple. It works like a real credit card. And i think that they aren't allowed to use gift cards cause they dont get the tax so they dont bother.

    Is that debt card? Do you charge every time you load it?


    I always ask my cousin from New York for USA itunes gift card and I redeem it with my USA iTunes account. I live in Toronto.

    go into any sobeys and you can buy a prepaid credit card with no additional fees final price for my 25 card was like 28.50 ($3 and change in prepaid service fees) or something ordered up 3.0 and NFS undercover which strangly enough i wasnt charged for found that really weird i am thinking they arent charging people downloading it with the 3.0 firmware already inplace due to known problems

    Wait. Try a proxy.

    Google UltraSurf and make a US account

    Enter the your gift card code and try?

    Doesnt work. The gift card's code is licsenced to/in Canada. The gift card would only work with Canadian accounts. Apple only allows the gift card to buy music, movies, but not apps in Canada.
