To change stores you can do so on the iTunes Store: Click on your Account in the iTunes Store to go to your Account Page. Click "Change Country or Region". Choose your Country or Region: Another alternative is to use Apple's My Apple ID site and change your address - next time you use iTunes it will ask you to change your region and verify your ...

This is by design. Apple requires you to set up an account even for free purchases (except podcasts). In the past, you could set up a free account in iCloud and get away with not entering information, but now the security is getting beefed up. You may be asked for three security questions and to re-verify your account periodically. The passwords are now ...

You can remove the country code from the URL, so it reads http://itunes.apple.com/artist/nash-the-slash/id160526527. That gives you a valid iTunes URL, that if opened in a browser (that doesn't auto-open iTunes), appears to be the same as if the link were a US link. However when any iTunes link is opened in iTunes itself, it will attempt to redirect to the ...

You can use redeemed value from an iTunes gift card to buy from the following stores: iTunes music, movie and TV stores for iOS, Windows and Mac iBookstore on iOS App Store on iOS App Store on Mac OS The only gift cards that are accepted at an Apple Retail Store are Apple gift cards. The Apple Retail Stores and the Apple Store online do not accept ...

Updated 17 Dec 2013. As reported by Macworld, the iBookstore now allows you to gift books: Gifting in the iBookstore works identically to Apple’s iTunes and App Store counterparts: Just choose the book you’d like to gift, then tap either the dropdown arrow next to the price (on a Mac) or the Share button (on an iOS device). More details are in their ...

Ultimately, I was able to stop iTunes from automatically downloading TV shows with the following steps: With iTunes open select iTunes > Preferences... and click the Store tab If checked, uncheck checkbox Always check for available downloads If checked, uncheck checkbox Download pre-orders when available Click the OK button, and close iTunes Open ...

If you choose to do so, your friend will not be able to update apps without knowing your password. If you give your friend your password, they will then be able to shop for apps using your account. The other problem is that your friend may not be able to sync with his/her computer without erasing the apps. The last problem is Apple restricts each Apple ID ...

If I recall correctly, what you are planning to do may violate the ToC set but if you still insist, Apple's website highlights the following restrictions: Your Apple ID can have up to 10 devices and computers (combined) associated with it. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID. Once a device or computer is associated with your Apple ...

Most of the time, this means there is something wrong with you creditcard information. So do as told and contact iTunes to get rid of the message. With no screenshot or further information, it's hard for us to provide a solution.

This is by design. A developer lists an app for one or more markets and when you lose past purchases, that indicates that that app was available in the old market and no longer is available in the new market. Have a look on the site, there are several threads on people deciding to switch countries or keep an old account. One is simpler and potentially ...

Once she decides to sync the device once, the contents will still be removed. Your sister won't be able to back up the videos and music or sync it to her iCloud, but it should keep playing all the media for months to come. If she erases it or syncs it with a new computer - she can return it to you for a reload or just start fresh with her songs at that ...

Home Sharing is done under a different Apple ID than the one the computer is authorized for. I have my computer registered under my ID (with automatic downloads on!), and Home Sharing set up under a family ID. To do this correctly: Make sure you are signed in to your ID under the Store menu. Log in to the shared ID with the appropriate command under the ...

Apps that have been removed from the App Store can no longer be downloaded, regardless of having been purchased or free. If you can confirm that you cannot find them in the App Store, then, sadly, this is the case.

It's there for me both in iTunes and the iOS App Store (on an iPhone, don't have my iPad handy to test). That's in the Canadian store, FWIW. Things can and do vary by country, and for that matter by what CDN node you're connected to, so it may be different for others. Best advice is to wait it out and try again in a little while, in case there was a glitch ...

I got rid of this pesky error by turning iTunes Match off quit iTunes launch iTunes turn iTunes Match on The first time iTunes complained with error 5002 during Match startup, but then it worked.

You may be confusing the limit of 5 devices that can automatically download new purchases with the ability to sign in and download a past purchase. You can simply sign in to the App Store on the new device, navigate to purchases and re-download TomTom. The current terms of service do not limit personal use of apps on multiple devices. You should read the ...

No, Apple does not allow app creators to charge users twice for an app already purchased(in this context). Of course the developer could create a new app with a new name, but identical content, and in that way try to get people to buy it twice. However that is not the case here. Are you sure that you actually bought that program with that specific AppleID - ...

You will need to get in contact with the online store team of the country you purchased from. Here's the ways to contact Apple for order enquiries. If you can't call them, during 'normal business hours' you can chat with them. Chat Shopping online and have a quick question? Our trained Chat specialists may be available to assist you during ...

I don't think it is possible to obtain the link to a specific episode, either from the iTunes app on iOS where you can browse the store, or from the iOS music app after if has already been downloaded. Often a direct link to the episode is included in the show notes that are included, but the built in apps have scant support for allowing you to actually view ...

This is how it would work on a Mac; I don't see a way of obtaining a podcast episode URL from within the built-in iTunes iPhone app. In the iTunes app, navigate to the podcast episode and copy the episode link by clicking the little triangle next to "FREE" in the right column: When the link is opened on the Web, you can see what specific episode was ...

If you have a credit card assigned to your account as well as a gift card, purchases will use the gift card first as a rule. Only when the gift card is consumed or can not cover the entire cost of the purchase will money be deducted from your credit card.

The front side is actually irrelevant for the card. If you buy any iTunes gift card for and with US dollars, you can redeem it with any US Apple ID. It will at least work with the Music store, iOS App Store, Mac App Store, and iBookstore. (I've been using those cards ever since, since I don't have a credit card.) You can use up to 8 Apple Gift cards (not ...

According to this Bloomberg article: Netflix Inc. (NFLX) is deepening its ties with Apple Inc. (AAPL) by allowing owners of Apple TV set-top boxes to sign up for the video-streaming service directly and pay through their iTunes accounts. More details and support links can be found on Netflix's iTunes billing page. Finally, according to the ...

I've got this same situation going at home; two computers with separate iTunes Store accounts, an AppleTV that pulls content from both of them, and iTunes Home Sharing turned on. The automatic syncing behavior is optional and, I believe, opt-in. When you turn on Home Sharing and select it in iTunes, you'll see this down in the bottom right corner: When ...

They are all available, it's just a numbering and naming inconsistency between the devices. On the Apple TV, the "All TV Shows 12" is referring to the total number of distinct TV shows (example: Seinfeld, 30 Rock, The Office, etc). In the iTunes Store > Purchased section on your Mac, the "Total: 15 items" is referring to the total number of seasons of ...

Yes, some studios only allow a movie to be downloaded once, so you see this message. I'd wait until you're able to download the 1080p version.

This is a widespread issue affecting many iOS devices (with the exceptions of international stores). Apple has yet to respond/fix this bug. update It appears that Apple has resolved the issue. You can now download iTunes media normally.

Thanks for documenting the current state of play. Although most can buy gift cards from the store of your choice and load them into the App Store, if they truly are not easily available in your country just slowing down the cycling of cards you use for payment is the obvious choice out of this dilemma.

You can't buy without iTunes or an iOS device. You can borrow someone else's device (iOS or computer) and sign in with your account to do the buying and then cancel the download / delete the app. You could also gift them to yourself, but that is a bit more work and doesn't save you from getting to the point where you would just buy the apps. As a last ...
