    I all I'm new here and new to iPads I live in France but don't have a huge grip on the language
    It seems I can only buy from the French stores for both apps and musis I have registered my French card as I no longer have a uk bank card
    But it won't allow this payment through the uk store any ideas on ways around this if I buy a French gift card will it work with the uk store
    Cheers

    No - a French Gift card won't work but you can purchase UK Gift Cards on the Internet. Since you only need the ID code from the rear of the card the retailer can email it to you and you're good to go. For sure, you don't need a credit card...

    There's an Apple 'White Paper' on this that I can send you if you want more details....


    Several Members have done this so there's no problem....

    Let me know if you need any further information.....
