    Hi there!
    I have exhausted all avenues. Hope one of you can assist.
    I recently took a iPad3 over from a friend of mine. I created my own Apple ID and have signed it with that under Settings>Itunes Store and App.
    When I enter the itunes icon on my desktop, it says "cant connect to the itunes store".
    I then only get podcasts and ituneU as options in itunes.
    I have tried to login and out, reset settings, network settings, restrictions...everything. Can someone please help?
    I am on a wifi connection.

    THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

    I had the same problem. I eventually did a restore of the iPad and it is now ok. One of the Apps could not be restored and I feel that it was my problem.

    I'm afraid my post is frivolous in comparison to all of the above since I only wish to say what a cool member name "moosemom" is. :)

    I'm from Canada, eh.

    What country are you located in? Some countries limit which iTunes content is available in their countries.

    I have an IPod touch as well as an iPad. When I had the "unable to connect...." Message, my iPod was ok ....I only got in on my iPad.
    The app updates were working fine on my iPad and then a couple of weeks ago I started having problems. I followed another recommendation that I found online and that was to move ahead the date/time on the iPad and try again. This worked for a while but it was a pain changing the date backwards and then resetting it. Eventually this stopped working.
    I then attached my iPad to my desktop and via iTunes did a restore. There was one APP that it was unable to restore but my iPad is updating ok now.
    The app that did not restore was one I had added recently. It might have even been the last one I added before I started having problems. I can not be sure. I am just not going to add that App again - it was a freeby.

    A long answer to your question about it being an ISP problem. I am sure it was not in my case as my iPod continued to function and only my iPad had the problem.
