Question

I cat't change from US APP store to UK APP store

by kprj / February 22, 2013 10:35 PM PST

THis problem has been aired before but regrettably the solutions proposed don't work for me. I am UK based where my iPad-2 IOS 6.1.2 was purchased and filled with APPS. I recently spent 2 weeks in the US where I downloaded one free APP. Now every time I try to update my APPS (there are 13 waiting) I am told "Account not in this store. Your account is not valid for use in the US store. You must switch to the UK store before purchasing". I check my country - it is the UK. I have signed out and in again, reselected the UK and gone through everything, this time I get an error "your session has timed out". I have tried signing out and in again on my PC in iTunes and ensured that the UK is selected. I have rebooted the iPad several times but exactly the same problem remains. Apple bugs always seem to be real stoppers don't they? Anyone got any ideas? Thanks
