    View your account and switch countries, but i was going to try it but it says that i have to have an empty account before i can do that, and i have 49.10$ so im not wasting it, but if someone has no money on their account, try switching countries and buying some cards and trying to get the update

    Dont trust me on this, its just another theory

    Won't Work... iTunes Cards are only good for the countries in which they are purchased.

    Also, you can locate an IP address geographically, so Apple would most likely know where you are roughly located. The accuracy is not like GPS, but they can tell what country for sure, then sometimes even the province/state or in extreme cases the city.

    lol - I live in Hamilton which is even closer to the border (try like an hour or so...)

    It wouldn't work

    The ISPs have a set of IP address that they can assign to a specific area. This means that they know roughly where the person is.

    Ottawa is NOT close to the border, the only border its close to is the quebec/ontario border. Ottawa to the CAN/US border is a mission.

    Using a american itunes prepaid card works anywhere in the world. Im all the way, thousands of miles away from the us and i have been using the itunes prepaid card to buy my music and now apps. so just buy a itunes card and create another account. or can an ipod only sync with one itunes account?

    It all depends on your ISP, your service package, and location. Anyways, you can just use a proxy.
