Hi! Hope all is going well for everyone. My wife and I just purchased a new iPad which we're very happy with but in the course of setting up the itunes account for use in conjunction with the ipad, I've made a mistake and can't find a way to correct it. Any advice would be much appreciated. What I've done is as follows:
I setup an original itunes store account complete with user ID, my credit card number and password. We then downloaded ibooks onto the ipad when setting it up and synced to the computer which has the itunes account.
Things worked fine until I did two things: First, I changed the Apple User ID (to my wife's email address instead of mine as the setup is on her computer) and change the password as required as well. Secondly, I redeemed a $50.00 ibooks gift card and put it on this now revised account. The credit is there, the account is fine but the ipad still has the original account information on it. When I try to change the account information under "Settings....Store....Sign In...on the ipad, I'm advised that the new ID that I type in is already in use and not valid. The ID is my wife's email address that I used in the newly revised account.
In short, we have an itunes account on the main computer and a different account showing up on the ipad.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to change the ipad account so it dovetails with its counterpart in the iTunes store?
Any advice would be most welcome as we try and solve this problem.
Thanks in advance.
Bob and Louise.
