    I dont have a US address, nor any payment method linked with the US.

    Is there a way to buy apps from the US store anyway?

    You can select none for the payment options, and just use whatever address as long as the zip code corresponds to the city. But this probably is against the agreement you accept.

    Edit: Should mention that you would only be able to get free apps through this way, and would have apps on your phone through 2 different accounts. Also you could add money to the account by buying American itunes gift cards.

    just tried it, doesnt work, buying a gift coupon in the austrian store will lock the gift coupon for that store only.

    That's why Kevlar said:
    There are places on the net (some dodgy, some legit) from where you can buy US gift cards. Google it. Or get a friend living/travelling in the US to get you one.

    Okay, thanks for the feedback, was hoping there would be an easier way.
