    I'm going to Europe in a few days for 2 months and I was wondering if it's possible for me to still purchase things off of the U.S. iTunes. Anyone know?

    Yes. You'll need to use your US credit card but you shouldn't have any problems.

    Yes... I actually live in Costa Rica and I can still buy/rent things from the U.S. store. This is mostly because CR's App Store sucks.:D

    Yep. I'm currently living in London but still use my U.S. iTunes account. According to Apple's terms and conditions you're not technically supposed to use a country's iTunes store outside of that country, but Apple doesn't seem to do anything to enforce that...

    Yes, to echo what everyone else said. I was in London for the first half of the year and my iTunes account was fine. I was on WiFi the entire time and still managed to purchase music and movies, granted it was very slow over the network I was on.

    You can buy from an iTunes Store while outside your country but this is supposedly in contradiction with iTunes Store rules.

    Somewhere between here and there...
    I hope they don't ever enforce that clause in the terms and conditions. My job takes me out of the US for years at a time... I'd go batty if I couldn't purchase things off the iTunes store.
