Welcome to the Apple Community.Unfortunately, if Apple simply allowed people to log into different accounts and download content, everyone would be using everyone could share everyone else's content and bypass the need to purchase anything. To protect against this, they limit you to logging into a new account to once every 90 days.If two or more of you, have different accounts and use only one computer, you should each have your own user account on the computer, to avoid the need to log in and out of iTunes.
Winston - Thank you for the information. We do have our own iTunes accounts and user accounts on the computer. So, is it simply that he did not log out of his iTunes? If he logs out of his iTunes account and then I log into mine (or do I need to re-log in to mine perhaps) should that solve the 'problem"?
Thanks in advance.
It's not the loggin in that causes the lockouts. It's when you log in, and then either use iTunes match, or download from the Cloud that you associate the Apple ID with the device.
You are allowed 2 free associations. The first time you do this on a new device, and you can switch to a different Apple ID once after that. If you switch agian, then you run into problems for 90 days.
mr. Churchill, While we respect your knowledge in general Re: Macs ,in this particular thread you either do not care or you do not have the needed info. the people have allready explained that they have both individual user accts and individual itunes accts and still cannot use auto downloads on both accts for 90 days. It is not a issue of misusing the downloads without paying, it is simply a matter of wanting to have thier own music snyched accross thier own accts on thier macs and ipods,iphones,ipads,etc. I have seen this problem in many different forums and your attempt to answer in every forum is basically the same, and does not work or inform at all. so please research the issue further and try to get to the bottom of this problem, And belive me it is getting to be a larger problem by the day as people run up against it. there were 7 people in line at the genius bar with the same problem the other day, I was told it is getting huge. and they do not have a cure.
