    Hey all !

    I'm trying to buy a .99c app on my iphone. I have 1.01$ left on my itunes account (I buy gift cards as I do not have a credit card...) but it doesn't let me buy the app and says I have insufficient funds. Are apps taxable in Canada and thus the price is higher than 1.01$ ? What's the deal ?

    Thank you for your responses !

    I had a similar issue when I was making purchases across both my iphone and direct through the store on my macbook - when using gift cards the balances would be different in each. Seemed to resolve after a sync.

    I'm pretty sure it's tax.

    Sync did not fix the issue.

    I'm going for the tax hypothesis, which sucks ! :mad:
