    :mad: Grrrr....

    I just moved from New Zealand to the UK and I changed my iTunes store. Although 99% (if not 100%) of my apps are available in the UK store I cannot update them - even though itunes tells me updates are available. The only solution they have given me is to change my store to NZ to do the updates and then back to UK!

    Has anyone else had this issue? My NZ Credit card expires in the New Year so I will need a new solution to this. I have quite a lot of paid apps from the NZ store.

    Well your account is linked to the store you buy from. Apple explicitely mentions that the store is meant to be used only in the location that it is available.

    I'd suggest you contact Apple support and see if they can move your apps to your new account/CC.

    Yeah I did contact them. They just said I have to change my store everytime I need to do an update. They should probably mention this with the FAQ on how to change your country....
