I have itunes accounts in two different countries where I have both residence and bank accounts. When I switched between them on my iphone I was given a message that the device could only have one account and I could not return to the other for 90 days - any solutions would be appreciated

iPhone 4, iOS 7.0.2

    That sounds like the "90 day switch" rule related to changing Apple IDs.  Whenever you enable automatic downloads, turn on iTunes Match or download previous purchases your device or computer becomes "associated" with the ID currently in use.  Once associated in this way you cannot change to another ID for a period of 90 days (read more here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4627).  I suspect this rule was necessary to prevent piracy as it prevents one from quickly signing into a number of their friend's IDs and download their purchased content.

    This is correct. These are the terms and conditions for using the iTunes store, so there is no way of changing this behavior.
