Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores

If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

It was a dark and stormy night that Thursday the 13th of October, and the pavement had broken out into an oily sheen of sweat. And then, to use the Reagan/Bush passive voice cop-out, mistakes were made, resulting in an automobile accident involving Tonya and our Honda Civic. The car can be repaired in a week or two, but the more subtle injuries to Tonya's neck took several days to manifest themselves and may take much longer to heal. With any luck, she'll be fine in a few weeks or months, but in the meantime, Tonya cannot handle much email. This, combined with some pre-arranged commitments I have for the next two weeks, means the less unnecessary email we receive, the better. Thanks for understanding. [ACE]
