    I am having problems with buying applications from the UK or us stores.. I am in Ukraine but could not find my country on the list when subscribing for iTunes... I had to use Nigeria.. But not I want to change to UK or US so that I can download my favorite applications.

    You can only buy from the UK or US store if you create an Apple ID account for those countries, and use it. There are instructions on how to do that somewhere around here. Try a search on the forum, or you could try Googling them. I'm afraid my memory isn't working well today.

    Thank you so much.. It worked for me... But the problem I am having now is that I can only installed free items from UK and US store.. There are some col apps I like to get in the store but you have to pay and when ever I try to use my credit card, it always says my credit card is invalid in that store.. Pls how can I get those apps..

    You could try buying an iTunes gift card and put credit into your account that way, they are available in many places.....online and in high street stores.

    As Gab said, you can top up your account there with an iTunes Gift card in the currency of the iTunes store you want to use - say US or UK. These Gift Cards can be purchased easily on the Internet and, since you only need the card's ID number, the retailer can email this to you and you're good to go in minutes.
