Please choose the appropriate forum for this topic. Thank you. If I used a UK iTunes card in the US, would it work? Like, let's say I made a new account just to buy "import" downloads from the UK iTunes Store from the US. Has anyone tried this?
Gifts purchased from the iTunes Music Store in the United States may be purchased only for, and redeemed only by, residents of the United States. Gifts are non-refundable. Gifts may not be purchased with iTunes Music Cards, Gift Certificates or Allowance Accounts.
This is from the legal document pretaining to the UK store:
4. Gift certificates, iTunes Music Cards, song codes and monthly gifts purchased in the UK must be redeemed through the UK iTunes Music Store, open only to persons above the age of 13. Not all products may be available. Internet access and compatible software and hardware are required.
Will an iTunes gift card work from any country in the world? Absolutely. There are no technical restrictions used by the iTunes Music Store to prevent this from occurring, and it would be difficult (although not impossible) for Apple to enforce this.
In addition, since you would likely have to fabricate an address when registering, this could be construed as fraudulent use of the service.
The bottom line is that there are no technical restrictions that will prevent you from doing this, but you do so at your own risk. Keep in mind as well that the DRM keys for any content you purchase are linked to your iTMS account, if Apple were to "close" your account you would risk losing future access to your purchased content.
