    col.bris - hoping you can help me, I think my question is similar to the previous one (if not the same)

    I have an Ipad and have synced it with my UK itunes account for all of my UK apps, etc.

    I have also a US itunes account.... my question is if I download Ibooks (or other app) from the US store and then sync it with my ipday will I loose all of my UK stuff on my ipad ?

    Basically - can I have both sets of apps on the same ipad at the same time and if so how.

    Many thanks in anticipation

    Yes no problem. You may have to authorize apps bought from USA just enter correct user nam and password when requested by iTunes otherwise it works fine. Col

    I actually have, for several reasons, more than one account with the iTunes-Store US.

    All you have to do is keep record of you account details (username, password). This is all you need to use music, videos and apps from several iTunes accounts in one iTunes database.

    Please make sure, that you keep exact record of the devices you want to have access to these content. Apple only allows up to 5 (five) computers/devices using DRM-content. You can manage those in your iTunes.

    One final advise. When you change your computer(s) accessing/using your iTunes (maybe because you buy a new one), then disable it first in iTunes, before you swap.
    Because Apple only allows you ONCE per year to disable all devices at once.

    I was trying to set up a US account in the itune store, but the no payment option has been disabled by Apple. Hence I can't access any ipad apps outside of US. Is there any other way around it ? Appreciate your advise.

    Hi Colin,

    I'm in the same boat - bought an iPad in US yesterday and in UK today can't get it to work with my UK iTunes account. Would be very grateful for a detailed explanation of what to do please? One other question while in the US I plugged it into my laptop to register it whereas I usually use my desktop with my iTunes account; should I not have done this?
    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the reply Colin but I already have a UK account with funds in it and when I try to change country it says I can't until the account is empty. I've also totally reset my iPad and managed to transfer data using USB connection to iTunes. When I open iTunes in the iPad it does recognise me but again says the same thing 'The App Store is not supported in this country'. I guess I'm going to have to spend my money first using my PC and then change accounts unless someone knows how to tell the iPad taht it should be coinnecting to the UK App Store? Thx

    Before the release of the iPad in UK you will not be able to use the UK account on the iPad itself. You can use it on your computer to buy apps and music for now. Your purchases can then be synced over to the iPad. Once released in UK this should not be a problem.

    iBooks is US only atm but it is said that there will be regional ibook stores upon release. I have not heard anything more than that.
    To get your hands on the iBooks right now do the following.

    Start iTunes.
    Scroll down to the little round flag in the right corner.
    Choose US.
    Create an US account. (Buy US giftcard on Ebay first as you will need it to create the account and buy things unless you have a US cc)
    Login to that account on yout iPad.
    Shop away! at least until your giftcard money runs out ;)

    Also apps synced over from the iPad with your UK account can only be updated via itunes on your computer and not on the iPad itself. The US account apps will work as usual.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Zorban,

    Thanks for the info. I found some help on an the Apple iPad site (I think - looked at that many!) that saod if you log off any account you already have then go to the App Store and click to download a free App it will ask you to log-in or create an account and if you do it this way when it asks for credit card details it allows you to select none and still create an account (with a US address). If you don't ask to download a free App it does not allow you to select 'none' in the credit card details. At least I've not had to spend my credit in the UK store to change my account to a US one so hopefully I will be able to use it come 28 May.

    For a USA Credit card holder,it is an easy task to go with iTunes Store as we know. But what will do if you don't have a USA credit card...???? Now it is too easy to buy and rent Movies and TV shows and buy apps,Music,audio books and games from the USA iTunes store even if you don't have a USA Credit

    Hey guys try this. Select the country that you want, then try to download a free application, fill in the details, then on the second page you should be able to select none for the credit card details. This worked for me years ago and I tried it awhile back and it still seems to be working great. Good luck :p
