Ali: It means that you\'re in a country where iPhone apps can\'t be installed. The only way to fix this problem is to move to a different country where they can be installed. :)

Hi. I have an iphone+a Windows Vista computer. I have never had any problems buying anything from iTunes, but since I updated my iPod to the 2.0 software, it is not letting me download any apps and keeps saying cannot process the request, error code 1009. What does this mean? What am I doing wrong? I want to buy some apps and it is not letting me. It gives me the same problem on the app store application on the iphone also. Help please!
