Further, you can only have an account at the U.S. iTunes Store if you have a valid U.S. billing address. You may wish to return the gift card to your U.S. relatives.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 4, 2009 6:31 AM (in response to Meg St._Clair)Is this true for all iTunes cards - they can only be used in the country in which they were bought? If that is so, how ridiculous. I had sent my brother in Ireland a $50 card for his birthday last year. He did not say anything about it not working. Now, I understand why. Is there a workaround? Does one's iTunes account have to be registered in the U.S.? Can someone, say in Ireland, just use a U.S. address of a relative?

No. That would be a violation of the terms of the iTunes Store.
It's unfortunate, but the content owners do not allow cross-border sales, so all legal download stores carrying major-label content and/or TV shows and movies are required to enforce the restrictions by accepting only credit cards and gift cards issued in the country's store.iMac 2.8 Core 2 Duo 24" 4GB ATI 2600, Mac OS X (10.5.6), PowerMac G5 2.0GHz DP, Dell w/ Windows Vista Unlimited SP1
