    I live in SoCal, but am originally from the Netherlands. I still have a bank account there that I use. I wanted to download the Dutch bank's new iPhone app, only to find that I cannot get it as my iTunes account is restricted to US purchases only. For crying out loud, it is a FREE app! I shuttle back and forth between the US, Europe and Africa, so I can see this happening again.

    Am I really gonna have to have two Apple-ID's for this??? Come on, Apple, remove those restrictions. What good are they, anyway?

    Impressed with Apple's swift reply to my complaint:

    Of course, part of the question remains unanswered: why can't I purchase/download stuff from the Dutch ap store with my US account???
