    I just moved from Canada to the US and would like to start taking advantage of Google Voice (it's not available in Canada). Namely, I want to use the iphone app for it.

    Since it's not available in Canada I need to change my itunes store to the USA. I have a credit card down here, so changing the address/billing is no problem. But when I go to change the country/region it says:
    I don't have any rentals. Or outstanding downloads.

    I tried going to change my account online, but it doesn't offer a country or region change option.

    I don't want to abandon this account, because I have lots of apps/software that I want to be available if I lose my iphone/computer/etc.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    It's possible to have your system authorised for two accounts at once, so it's probably easier to just create a new account.

    If I open a new account, will I be able to sync apps from both accounts onto my iphone?
