    Hi,

    I have two iTunes accounts on two different app stores. I normally have a tough time with updates, since the iPad behaves strangely when it comes to the current, active login and the password that it asks! I'm sure many have the same problem!

    Anyway, I thought I'd delete one of the accounts and continue with the other! What will happen to the apps associated with the account I want to delete?

    They simply won't be updated any longer.

    In MY experience ~ you won't be able to update those apps you purchased with that account.

    Ask me how I know.:(

    So you register as a different country every time? Is there that much of a difference in the apps?

    An iTunes account can only be tied to one country so you need different accounts if you want things from different stores. Lots of apps are restricted due to location so this is a way round it, iplayer only available in the uk store for example, or netflix in the us store.

    You can continue to use the same account unless you need to change your billing address for a credit card. I'm living in Malaysia and use my US account
