Hi

Ipod Specialist :

I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.

Ipod Specialist :

I think you are in the UK store. Have you recently synced the iphone with the computer? Also, are you having the US itunes store account?

I have never synced the iphone with a computer.

Customer :

Sorry I dont know what you mean with 'US itunes store account'

Ipod Specialist :

I mean to ask whether you are using the US credit card?

Ipod Specialist :

in itunes

Customer :

yes

Ipod Specialist :

May be you are in the UK store. let's check it out. Go to Settings > Store. Your apple id will be listed there. Let me know once you are there

Ipod Specialist :

Customer :

Ipod Specialist :

Ipod Specialist :

Ipod Specialist :

http://iforgot.apple.com

Customer :

you know what I will just cancel this call - thanks anyway - its all too complicated at the moment.

Customer :

i will sign off now but thank you anyway

Ipod Specialist :

it is very simple. I will walk you through the steps.

Ipod Specialist :

First of all, we need to change the itunes store password since the password you use does not work. For that, just go to http://iforgot.apple.com
and change the password. Then on the iphone, go to settings > store and sign in to your account. Once you are signed in, click on your account name, then click on "view apple id". Now you will be taken to the account page where itunes store country will be listed. Change that to US, if it is already on UK

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
