    Hello all - I'm the proud possessor of an iPad which was given to me for my birthday.  Lucky me. Already I've messed up and need help. I changed my ID and password and now I can't access my app Store/iTunes etc. because they are registered under my first ID name and they won't respond to my original password. I live 120 miles from the nearest Apple store I feel so stupid and helpless (and very guilty) Please can someone help me?

    On the iPad, in the App Store app - did you try logging out of the store and then logging back in with your new info?

    There's a button to access your account on virtually any one of the tabs in the store. It's on the bottom left (starts with "Apple ID:"). Pressing on it gives you an option to log out... You can also access the store settings in your Settings app.

    Hope this helps. Let us know how you're getting on.
