Singapore gets iTunes on iPhone! But you still can't buy music.

I got 1 good news and 1 bad news. The good news is, the Singapore iTunes store on iPhone and iPod Touch is now online! The bad news however, is that you still can’t buy music from the iTunes store in Singapore. Currently, you can only access Podcast and iTune U on the iTunes store.

OK, so you might be asking, why have an iTunes store on iPhone and iPod Touch when you can’t buy music? In the past, we can’t access iTunes store in Singapore on our iPhone. Not a big issue for those who are not interested in buying music on their iPhone. But if you want to update your podcast on the go, you can’t! Because if you want to update your podcast on the go, you need to access iTunes store. You won’t have any problem if you are from countries with iTunes store. But if you are from countries that doesn’t have iTunes store like Singapore, you will be greeted with a message that says iTunes store is not available in your country and the iTunes store application will exit before you do anything. This is actually quite stupid and I’ve been complaining about this since iPhone 2.2 firmware. (or should I say iOS 2.2)
So I’m glad that we can finally access iTunes store on iPhone and iPod Touch to get the latest podcast update. But here is another problem.

The stupid 20mb limit when downloading over 3G network. Not sure about you, but most of the podcast I listen are more than 20mb. Damn.
Looks like I still need to use my workaround to download large files on iPhone over 3G.
