    My IPad2 shows I have 3 updates but every time I try to get them it says
    Cannot connect to iTunes Store
    Is iTunes down or it there a problem with my pad.
    It does have a connection to the net, I can get on line with the browser and can watch Netflix. But can not log in to iTunes.
    Any thoughts?

    Try just turning it off then back on if you haven't already. This happened to me once and that fixed it.

    Yah, tried that and it did nothing.
    Then it said my password was wrong when I know it is right, and now it is back to saying it can't connect.
    Just tried turning it off again and still no.
    Without iTunes I cant update anything, buy music or apps etc.

    Just like this guy said, it makes no sense but it worked. Here is what he did and I did and now I have my updates and access to the iTunes Store back.

    By the way, this post is from another forum, this person may or may not be a member here. But this did come from another forum.

    Same thing happened to me, while on a weekend trip to Washington, DC. I stayed at two different hotels, and got the same message at both when trying to update an app. I finally set up tethering on my phone, connected my iPad to the phone, and all of the sudden, I could connect to the iTunes store!

    I initiated the update, paused the update, reconnected to the hotel wifi, resumed the update, and it completed. Strange, but true!

    Maybe try going to your Internet provider and asking them...

    Hope this helps

    Or hold home button and power off button down until apple logo pops up (Restart)
    OR... Double click home button and when menu pops up hold your finger down on an app, until they start shaking and a red circle pops up in the top right corner of the app icon, then tap on this circle until all of the apps are gone. Then press the home button and try to update

    Something else to try.

    Open the App Store and scroll to the bottom of the Featured tab. You should see your Apple ID (or a Sign In button). Tap this and sign out of your account. Once signed out, tap it again and sign in with your account.

    This often clears up account/password problems.

    Note: Account sign in is individual to each of the iStores: iBooks, Apps, iTunes, iTunes U. Signing in/out of one does not affect the others.

    Tried this and it did not work. The bit about going to the iTunes page through safari and then trying the update again did work though. I can get back in to the store now.

    I was showing my Dad how to use his new iPad last weekend and was running into the same message. I did a reset and that seemed to have solved the problem. I wonder how many others having this issue

    Thanks. It fubared up again, and this time the safari trick did not work.
    Your trick did but it lost all my log in information for Netflix, and all my forums etc.
    Now I have to dig all that up off my laptop. Dang the luck.

    Everything is back to normal and I am not having any more problems logging in to the I tunes store. Thanks for the tip, thought I was going to have to take it someplace and get it fixed.
