    since Canadian policies prevent purchases of apps with an iTunes gift card, i was wondering if maybe if you changed your entire email and iTunes info to some random US info, will that work then with iTunes gift cards. Im really getting desperate because I really want some of these paid apps, and i know it's going to be a while until the 2G ipod touch jailbreak is out.
    thanks

    yeah i'm having that same problem (trying to buy apps with a gift card in canada)

    I guess the only thing you could do is try to change info.

    But somehow I doubt it would work.

    I will try myself anyway.

    The paid apps look amazing -- some of the free ones are incredible as well!

    You could always put in your credit card number if you were really desperate.

    I've actually never tried this.

    I have a brand new $25 iTunes gift card right here and managed to setup an American iTunes Store account about a week ago for another purpose.

    I'll give this a shot.

    It i doesn't work if your itunes gift card is Canadian. If you bought it in the USA, that would work.

    Wait, WHAT? You CAN'T buy apps with a iTunes card?

    I got the 60$ pack of cards for Christmas and I wanted to buy apps! The whole reason I asked for it!
    This is bull*! Or I'm just sadly mistaken. If I'm not, Apple's going to hear a load of crap from me.

    sh*t cards don't work in the US if bought in Canada. Gives an error that it's the incorrect store. Hurray, 60$ worth of cards I'll never use.

    I have a US account and Canadian cards don't work in it. It even says so on the card itself.
