    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I thought it best to give your post it's own thread so as to be better able to help you without interfering with that other ongoing thread. I know it's a little bamboozling when first posting on a Forum but please after doing a search on your problem to no avail, please start your own thread on your issue.

    I'm thinking you mean the App Store, you will find that what is on offer in the many different country App Stores varies quite a bit....this can be because of government regulations. You can however open an account for the App Store in another country. You will need another email account and as gmail does not denote a country, it is a great email to use for this.

    You will also need an iTunes card for the App Store you wish to join and these are easily found on the net. Some say that you may not need one at all but I haven't found it to be the case. As you only need the number on the iTunes card, this can be emailed to you immediately. A good idea is to look up the address for an Apple store in that country also to use as an address. Good luck, and if you need more help, just post!
