    If you buy American iTunes gift cards and set up another account, it works (I think).

    Yes.

    Purchase American iTunes Music Store Cards - these will credit your Account with money to spend in the US store.

    You must register under a new email, and have a US address - which I trust, you do ;) .

    You can also have people 'gift' you music, or get people to send you an electronic gift certificate.

    You could purchase Cards from Amazon, or eBay.

    As for people buying credits on your behalf - there are plenty of trusted people on MR - Katietachoo, Killumanti etc. PayPal them money, and they will send you the code right over.

    (Its what I do, and I'm further from the US than you :p )

    When you purchase a card/get given a code, click on 'Redeem' - when it asks for your username and password, select New Account (something like that) - this way, you can register without a credit/debit card, based in the USA.

    You'll need a US address.
