    Question AppStore access through Proxy on iPhone

    If I want to purchase content on the phone from a different country, can I make the AppStore IP connections go through a proxy?

    I have the iSSH app on my phone that seems to be able to tunnel connections to a remove SSH server.


    Question is, can the AppStore go through that proxified connection? If not, is the only way get the content to do it on a proxified connection on a PC?

    You just need an account with the appstore for another country. This generally just requires that you can get a credit card or iTunes gift card that allows you to register with an address in the country you are trying to buy apps from.

    No need for proxy changes.

    So, say I am in Turkey and would like to buy a magazine from the US store. Do I need to have a US credit card? Can I not use a credit card from Turkey?

    If not, is there a way to trick the iPhone AppStore app that I am coming from the US via an SSH proxy?

    I am really trying to figure out what is the technical eligibility rule for being able to purchase content from the US store:
    1. US IP address
    2. US credit card

    It is tied to the address you register with. That address needs to look like a real US address.

    If you register with a credit card, it must be a US credit card with a US billing address
    If you register with an iTunes gift card you need to register what looks like a real US address
    If you register to buy a free app, then you still need to register what looks like a real US address

    IP address don't matter for purchases as far as I can tell
