    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    So you opened an account with the US App Store?

    Well both these accounts would have been created with a different email address?

    So go to the Settings App - iTunes and App Store and have a look there which account you are signed into. You can then sign out of and into the other account when you want to.

    Hope this helps!

    You need a U.S. payment option, such as a U.S. iTunes gift card. You may be able to buy one online. All you need is the activation code, which can be entered by tapping the redeem button at the bottom of the AppStore or iTunes home page.

    Have you created another email address which does not denote a region, gmail is very good for this reason. I actually opened a US account last night with an US iTunes card. Your bank debit card I'm afraid will not work as it is based in Greece. You will need a US account which is why an US iTunes card is the best way to go. These are available on the net for purchase and as you only need the code on it, this can be emailed to you straight away. I did get the none option for credit card when I created mine, I don't know why you aren't but it may depend on the other info you have already input. What type of email address do you have? If it denotes a region, this could be the problem, you cannot use the same email address that you have used for your Greece account. Do you have an address? I used the address for an Apple Store in the US. You will also need a phone number too.

    Let us know how you go.

    If you already have a gmail account which is different to the one you used for your Greece account that should be fine. I think it failed for you as you input a Greece bank account which denoted a region.
    You will need to buy an iTunes card on the net. Just google them, there are plenty of sellers out there.....just be careful who you buy from, some will charge a premium extra. Once you do buy one, ask for the code to be emailed to you. Look up an address and phone number for an Apple store in the US so you have all the info you need for the new account.

    Once you have it all go to your Settings App - iTunes and App Store, tap your ID and sign out. Then you create the new account, input US store and follow the prompts.

    You should be good to go but let us know how you get on!

    Yassou!

    I'm glad it worked for you. You may have looked up the apps for a certain category which are free......the US App Store from what I have seen do have the most apps available and for me it's cheaper to buy them from the US store than from my own store.

    When updating your apps, if you are using your Greek ID, you will get a pop up to input your US store password if apps you bought there are also getting updates. It's much easier than signing in and out of ID's.

    Enjoy!
