    Hi there guys!

    First of all let me thank you for the great information I have found in these forums, it really was useful. My problem is the following:

    I have just purchased an ipod touch 2g from ebay, unfortunately however, I am live in Malta and there is no itunes store! I managed to create a US account, but obviously I had to use the 'none' payment method as I don't have an american bank account or credit card but maltese ones.

    So how can I purchase stuff from the store? Maybe if I buy a gift card (or what they are called) and redeem it myself would that work? (or to buy the gift card you need an amaerican payment method too?)

    Unfortunately there is only the semi-tethered jailbreak at the moment and I don't want to do that, I wanted to purchase some one or two games via the store for now.

    Thanks for your help,
    Frank

    Since you already have a US located account, all you need to do it to buy a gift card. You can get them off of eBay. The seller will send you the code in a couple of hours, no shipping involved.
    As for paying on eBay I use paypal. Paypal is just like an online creditcard linked to your bankaccount, really easy to use.

    Anyway I hope this helped.

    thanks

    So if I am understanding well, though I am not american ( I got an american account to be able to use the itunes store) I can still buy the gift cards and redeem them to buy applications.

    Thanks!
