I have an iPhone 4. When I try to update Apps, I get an error message warning that I can't update Apps using the US store, and 'redirects' me to the UK store. I only have a UK account in the first place, and all the Apps were bought from the UK store. Even after this 'redirection', the Apps won't update. Baffled.

    On your computer, verify what iTunes store you're signed into...lower right, you'll see a flag...if the US flag, click it and change to the UK store...then sync your phone.

    No, it's already set to the UK store, and I can update the Apps on the Mac fine, and then synch to the iPhone via the computer fine. The problem only occurs when I try to update or buy Apps on the iPhone. Weird.

    I have been having the same problem with updating my apps on iphone 4s.


    a message comes up and says "Account not in this Store" and my account  is not valid for use in the U.S. store!!

    I have never purchased anything from the US app store. This problem only happened when I updated the iphone last week!!

    Can someone help?

    On my itune account I am already registered in the UK setting.


    Come on Apple whats going on with your recent updates!!
