    hi there!
    I am new here, I live in BC, Canada
    just received my ipad2 as a gift
    and I love it, great fun and very useful
    I got one question for the expert here
    I've been playing this free game Battle Zone HD
    and I just can't buy the real version.
    when I click the icon to buy, it displays the request cannot be completed....
    please help me or point me to the right direction, thanks

    I assume you tried purchasing it through the Itunes APP store?

    yes, I think might know what happened but I don't how to work around it.
    It seems to be my itune account is in Canada
    and the Battle Zone is an US itune apps
    that might be why its not working, any ideas?
    or can someone firm this is true
    I email the company who makes the game but no reply.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Yes I believe this is the case, if you look in the Canadian App store it won't be available to buy. The way around is to get a US App store account which can be opened with a US iTunes card. You can always purchase one over the Internet and as you only need the Number on it this can be emailed to you by the vendor and you would be good to go. Have a look here-

    You may have to open another email account to do this though, gmail is a good one.
    Hope this helps.
