Is it possible to purchase from a US iTunes Account when you already have a UK iTunes Account?

Is it possible to purchase from a US/other country iTunes Account using the PC, when you're already registered for a UK one?

If so, how do you go about doing this (iTunes doesn't allow you to shop in different countries!) and will there be any problems syncing the purchase with the UK account (i.e. putting the purchase on your UK iTunes iPhone, and maybe transferring back to iTunes on the PC)?

Thanks

i know you can chnage the store to USA but it won't let you download stuff

I've got a usa itunes account, there used to be a work around for it. I'll see if I can find the instructions.

This isn't how I did it, but it's similar. You can buy itunes vouchers in dollars from ebay, they used to be a bargain, but they aren't so much any more.

Thanks for that. Any problems syncing UK/US applications to the UK iTunes enabled iPhone?

No problem, they all appear on the one itunes and sync together. You just have to sign in to the US account to update them and can't update them over wi-fi on the iphone.

But you have to purchase content using a US credit/debit Card or iTunes voucher, or can you use a UK Paypal account?

You have to buy USA itunes vouchers from ebay or just download the free apps.

How did you pay for the Apps?
