My complicated situation

My complicated situation

Before you ask, I already tried posting this in the 'mass what should I get thread'. I only got two responses, only one of which actually lead to a purchase. IMO that thread has gone to the dogs, with too many questions and not enough answers.

So here's the deal...

I want to get pandora radio

But it's only available in the us

And my account is Australian

And to switch country you have to have zero store credit

So I calculated that to get exactly zero credit from what I currently have I need to buy exactly seven $1.19($0.99) apps and exactly three $3.99($2.99) apps. I'm pretty sure this is the only way to get down to exactly zero from $20.30(my store credit) using only iTunes prices.

So which seven $1.19 games and three $3.99 games should I get?

Btw this is a true story, if it wasn't I wouldn't type this much on the dodgy iPhone keyboard

I still don't think you should make another thread about it, I don't care how many responses you get, if everyone creates a thread about it, the entire forum will just be junk...and everyones responses are normally the same in there anyways.

You could just make a US account with no credit card and not have to spend all your money.

To create a new account you have to have either a credit card or a validated iTunes card from that country

@Cody cat: I would be perfectly happy for this thread to be closed and moved to MWSIGT provided I got a few more responses.

My phone is jailbroken so I guess I could install the-app-that-must-not-be-named to get pandora but I was trying to avoid that method.

This isn't true at all.
