    Not a particularly useful answer.

    What region are you in?

    You can open an account in another country. You will need to create another email address, gmail is a good one to create as it doesn't signify a region. You will need an iTunes card of the country you wish to join and these are available on the net and as you only need the number on it this can be emailed to you. Others have had some success doing this without an itunes card but I havent found it to be so. You could try first and see if you get the none option for a credit card. The way to do this is to go into the store of your choice and select a FREE app to download and then proceed to create your new account. You will also need an address in this country, I know others have just put an address of an Apple store there. Have a look at this link

    Good luck and let us know how you go.

    Good advice by Leelai, basically some countries block or ban certain apps so your only choice is to follow the advice given and to be clear, Apple show you how to do this so there is no problem with it.
