    Strange thing is I have the same error.

    My itunes account was first setup in India and that worked fine.

    While on holiday in Ireland I attempted to install an app via the Iphone App store applet and got the message account only valid in the Indian ITunes store.

    Stupid I thought since if that is the case why couldn't they just forward to the Indian Itunes store but ok I will wait till i get back to India.

    I am back in India now and retried the app install via the Iphone app store applet and got the same error!

    Any ideas ?

    get an itunes gift card and set up a new account in that country- ;-)\
    then you dont need a CC- just an address there-

    fixed the problem. I needed to resync with my computer. During the sync it gave me the same error but it then said it was taking me to the Indian ITunes store. after that it works on my iphone as well.

    God knows why i need to sync for it to do that. the iphone should do that automatically

    I have 3 accounts in 3 countries, all with a gift card, & can be done without a card as well, as long as the app is free of course.

    Search the board for the how 2's.
