Strange thing when I tried to purchase the new applications which was annouced during this year MACworld for my IPod touch. I realized that Singapore Mac does not have this upgrade. So I tried to purchase from US. To my surprise, they need verification on the country of origin and Singapore is not in the list. :confused:

Questions:

Is this upgrade only available in selected countries which support iTunes download?

Why Singapore is not in the list of purchase?

:dunno:

I like the interface for iPod Touch, but the upgrade is not friendly enough.
Very fastrating as I have sharpened my credit card for the upgrade.

Somebody, please guide me. :embrass:
Will appreciate your help. Thanks. :)

i have the same problem. I even tried using my US credit card but they didnt accept it coz my mailing address is now different!!!! :(

very tedious....

anyway, you need to have a friend who is holding a US or Australian or other countries credit card (countries with itune store) and then purchase the applications using the computer that you normally use to sync with your ipod!

There goes my upgrade. :cry:
In that case, Apple should specify the countries which the upgrade is not available and sad to say Singapore is one of them. Very miss leading. :(

Pai Seh lah. :sweat:...Me love that lens.

Let me describe the ordering senerio.

When I connected the touch to the macbook, the iTune prompte me to that there is a app upgrade for touch. I have an account with mac which I have been using to buy Quicktime in the past. Of course, the account reflect my singapore address. This time different, the country cannot change to Singapore and was lock to States. :(

So I change the payment method using paypal (I have one account with paypal).
Paypal also need verification to make sure the person is staying in States. :bigeyes:
What to do. It is difficult to buy things in States now unless you have friends or relatives staying there. :cry:

i believe the app upgrade for the touch is the firmware upgrade 1.1.2 -> 1.1.3...u can perform this using ur iTunes software..Plug in iPod Touch and iTunes will start, if not start iTunes manually, then let iTunes detect ur iPod Touch..select ur iPod Touch on the tree view on the left..u will see 2 buttons "Upgrade" and "Restore"..click on "Upgrade" to get the latest firmware 1.1.3...

No jailbreak for 1.1.3 at the moment..but happy with a jailbroken 1.1.2..as it already offers the features from firmware 1.1.3..:D
