    I searched the topic and didn't find anything like my situation. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but most likely am.

    So I'm stationed in Afghanistan for the next year. I just got an iPad and wanted to get it set up so I could buy apps and stuff from the app store.

    Well, I figured out that Apple doesnt like IP addresses from this region. I had my brother update my account back in the states with the CC I plan on using, that took fine. Now, when I get in the app store on the iPad it wants me to verify payment and put in my security code (back of the card) before I download anything, even a free app. When I do this, it declines the transaction.

    Any thoughts of getting around this? I'm thinking an itunes store card will be my only alternative. Oh well, if it works that's fine. Just wanted to do it this way because that's how I have always done it.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I may be able to help regard the iTunes card I suggest your brother buys the cards and email the redemption code. Make sure you have a USA address and email
