    If my IPad was initially set up on someone else's computer but I have set up my account on the Apps store.
    Why is it still bringing up the account it picked up from the initial build?

    Hi there and welcome.

    I'm no expert on this but it sounds like it is defaulting to the iTunes account that it was originally linked to. Is there any chance that you could restore using your own computer? All your apps can be redownloaded for free again afterwards by going to the App Store app and the purchased tab.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers)

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at
