    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the search feature (in the toolbar at the top of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    Please take a moment to view the information linked below my signature to get the most out of your iPad as well as our forum.

    With regard to your question, you should be able to resolve this by changing the Region Format on your iPad:

    Settings > International > Region Format > Country

    I haven't tried it, but that should do it. Please let us know if that's the case and TIA!

    BTW, I moved your post to the iPad Help area where it might help others that follow.

    Welcome again and enjoy!

    Yikes! What a pain! Hope the OP is able to get this straightened out. I guess worst case I'd visit an Apple store or call them for support and see what they suggest.
