https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3758803?start=0&tstart=0 A stern caution for anyone who is thinking of taking an un-American vacation abroad. Buried in the infamous iTunes terms of service, according to Apple, use of your iTunes account while not in your home country is illegal. While your carrier may offer an international data plan, don't you dare try to download a travel app. Just like the guy in this Apple thread, my own account with thousands of dollars in purchases has been disabled after just 3 weeks out of the country. Returning to the US had no effect; even new cases filed with iTunes support are automatically blocked.
