    Damn you credit card companies!!! All I want to do is buy a freaking silicone case and some screen protectors and a car charger for my new HTC Desire, but you have to make it that much more difficult, don't you? It's not my fault they sell that stuff in Israel at 500 times the price, so common sense would suggest I'd shop on eBay or Amazon or something else.. I have a bank account, and cash, why can't you just take money from there and put these virtual digits on somebody else's screen, so I an get my accessories? Cunts. Hurry up and die soon.

    k.thx.dai.

    Being a US citizen I can't relate. Can't you just get a paypal account, and then buy stuff on amazon through paypal? I'm not 100% sure about shipping issues out of the country but it probably would solve the cc issue.

    Why don't you just buy it at your local store rather than buying it online?

    So you can't even connect your bank account directly to paypal, and then transfer? It takes a week to transfer (in Canada at least), but that might possibly work, if credit cards don't? This way paypal acts as a bank account for that money, instead of just a middle man.

    Rafi, soldier up, you monkey.

    You're off being taught how to kill people and you're on the internets yapping about mobile phone accessories.

    Shoot your laptop. Cut out the middleman. It's the 19 year old soldier's way.
