    I am new to the iPad but have been with iTunes for a number of years. I am a Canadian who now lives in the USA for six months of the year. On my past visit to the states, I acquired an iPad for X-Mas so in order to use it, I had to register with iTunes under our US address. I used a different e-mail address to register at that time retaining my Canadian address for use in Canada. Now I am wondering if it's OK to use both accounts on my iPad. Are there any restrictions I should know about and will I have any problems using both the Canadian and US accounts simultaneously? Any advice would be much appreciated, keeping in mind I am a novice in computer and iPad land. Thanx :)

    My understanding is that you can start a new iTunes account. You may need to use a different e-mail and/or home address. Make sure you're logged into the appropriate account for downloads and billing. Set it up from your computer that the iPad is authorized to. You may not be able to sync items from both accounts at the same time though. I don't know for sure.
    Stick around, there are many more experienced members than I. They'll probably have more info.
