Ok, this is what has worked for me and I guess it can work on any country. You do need to have an itunes gift card. Start by redeeming your gift card on the itunes. Make sure you have selected the US Store. (I live in Mexico and still used the US Store since there is where I bought my gift card) It will ask for your account and password. Create one. When it comes to address and all that stuff, pick a restaurant's or hotel's address and use that one, including the state, postal code and all. And since it won't ask for a credit card or a credit card billing address -because your're redeeming your gift card-, you're done, once you do this, your account is shown and your gift card redeemed. Hope this works for everybody. If it does, why don't you make a post, so that we'll know in which countries it does?

Hey, for those of you outside of the United States I would suggest getting a US Bank account which you can do without being in the US. You can then add this account to your Paypal and voila. Anna, I'll look into the gift card thing...
