    I bought a 20$ gift card and redeemed it in the store.

    Now when I go to update to 2.0 it asks me to "buy now" ok normal... then it makes me accept the agreement, ok, and then i enter password and then it takes me to a billing information page.... can i not use a gift card???

    It should work... Apple asks for quite a bit of information, that frankly seems unnecessary...

    Maybe I have to enter in that information to be able to choose to enter in my payment as gift card.

    You just need to enter your address and everything else. Just do not provide a credit card number.

    Nope. The reason why this is happening is because you're likely using a Canadian iTunes Gift Card, right?

    Canadian iTunes Gift Cards are not working because of certain Canadian tax laws and software laws.

    I'm Canadian, and it sucks.

    Software tax laws? Odd... I've bought software online without issues. Or do they mean GST? If so, that could come out of the credit, couldn't it?
