2 ITunes Accounts/unable To Change What Is Used For Updates

Sorry - this might sound confusing, but I'll try to explain.

I have 2 iTunes account. My primary Canadian and a US account.

The US account is only for those situations where I have to redeem a free promo code, etc.

The problem I'm having is that for normal, every day use my standard account is what I use to download and update applications.

However now when I try to "Update" apps from the iPad directly, it tries to use my US store account and, since the applications were purchased from my default account, I cannot update them directly on the iPad.

Updating them on my PC through iTunes works just fine, however.

I don't know what I need to do to fix this.

I've signed out everywhere I can on my iPad and signed back into my default account.

I've done the same through iTunes, I make sure whenever I sync my iPad, I am signed in on my default account.

Any time I download on the iPad, I generally only use my primary account, and there are no issues with the initial download.

Can't Change Account For App Updates
And yes, I've read that I'm supposed to log into my account in iTunes and re-sync but that doesn't work Brand new iPad. Everything is working great except for this one thing. I've installed all my apps from iTunes. These include apps purchased/downloaded by both my husband and me. We share the same iTunes but each of us have our own account. I've successfully transferred my apps, plus purchased a few new ones to the iPad. I see I need to update several. When I request update all and I get the window to enter my password, I see my husband's iTunes account.I've tried the suggestion - logged into my iTunes account then re-sync the ipad but that doesn't work.

Updates - ITunes Updates
I know that I need to wait for the next jailbreak to come out before I upgrade my iPad again,do I need to wait for different jailbreaks to come out before upgrading iTunes?I would be upgrading to iTunes version 10, but really want to know if it's a general rule that I'm good to go to update iTunes whenever the updates come out, but to wait on the iPad updates until the new jailbreaks come out?

Sync For Updates And ITunes?
I have an iMac 24" running Snow Leopard. At present I sync my iPhone to my iTunes account on this machine. All works great no issues. In the next week or so I have two iPads coming into my household via my children! They have their own Apple IDs but no computer to sync them to - they will only have iPads. Can/How will I be able to sync their iPads for updates, iTunes etc etc? Will they effect my iMac or iPhone? Will they each have their own iTunes libraries?

ITunes Indicates Updates Available But None Listed?
iTunes indicates there are new updates available (currently lists 5) but when I click on the bottom right icon, I am then told there are no apps to download. Why does it indicate there are apps to download ? and how do I fix ?

I can successfully download updates when they are available (i.e. greater than the current 5 listed).

Using Two ITunes Store Accounts?
I have an iTunes store account, my wife also has an iTunes store account. Both of these accounts use the same iTunes which is on my iMac. When I initialize my iPad, which I am having delivered from the US, if I intialize it using my iTunes account will that mean my wife cannot buy applications using her Finnish account and use them on the ipad or conversly if we initialize it, will I not be able to use apps on it which I purchase from my UK iTunes account. Or will all the apps from each of the stores just be on my Itunes on my Imac ready to sync when I plug in my Ipad..

Sync Two ITunes Accounts?
I seem to have come across an annoying problem with iTunes and my 2 iPads. I'll try to keep this short, but here goes. I bought an iPad, set up a new iTunes account on my PC, and downloaded a bunch of apps/ibooks for it, and synced it to that PC/iTunes account. No problem there. My wife liked it so much, I bought her an iPad, and what I want to do is transfer most of the apps I have bought already for mine, onto her iPad, and then she wants to sync her iPad to her PC/iTunes account (transferring her music/videos etc onto hers), but keeping the apps on it that I have already bought.

Syncing With Several Itunes Accounts?
have pulled together all our different "family"-iTunes libraries into one big database. Trouble is, that there are 6 accounts involved.Now the iPad is moaning, that it only can sync with 5 accounts. But I can't get rid of them, because I also have some movies or apps bought with these accounts, which I want to sync.

Use 2 Different Itunes Accounts On 1 Ipad?
I am sharing my ipad for the next few months and would like to avoid the 90 day lock out period. I intend to download tv shows on one account and my other half would like to do the same on her account on the same ipad.

Would doing this lock out the ipad? i read somewhere about automatic downloads, is there a way of disabling this so it does lock?

Situation is, I have a PC in France and a laptop in UK. Both have iTunes installed with same account.

I have purchased apps and music on the PC in France. Can these purchases be viewed on the iTunes account on the laptop in UK?

If so how?

Reason being that my new iPad is in UK and my son will be visiting the laptop to hopefully get everything loaded up prior to my wife bringing it back with her shortly.

Authorization For Itunes Accounts To Share And Watch Movies
me and my friend have had each others itunes accounts authorized for a long time and we always give each other music and apps and it all works fine but we recently tried movies and i can not get them to work. Itunes says i must authorize it but his account is already authorized on my computer and i have already used all 5 authorizations and i already de-authorized all computers in april. So will itunes not allow movies to be transfered or is something just wrong. My account is authorized on his computer as well. So whats going on?

Syncing Devices To Multiple ITunes Accounts On Multiple Computers
Can my devices (a 2G iPod Touch and a WiFi only 64GB iPad) be synced up to multiple computers, with my main library placed on each of these computers. And if so, can these Libraries be continually updated with regards to one another through the internet (or at least through my home network). By this I mean, if I make a purchase on one of them, will the other Libraries be updated and get this purchase.

Could Apple Change The Name Of The ITunes
Now that Apple will be selling magazine and newspaper subscriptions alongside movies and television, changing the name to the Apple Store Online or something like that makes sense.Or maybe, and follow me with this, Apple creates a dedicated application, the iStore, beautiful and light-weight, that could manage your magazine and newspaper subscriptions along with movies, music and television. Purchasing would also be done through this store. I'm thinking of something like Bodega. could also finally be the iTunes Store for Mac applications some people have wanted.

Change SIM Do I Need To Sync With ITunes Before Use?
Looking at a 64 GB + 3G but no-one at PCworld or Currys could answer my question.

So anyone who has one and has tried? Will I need to Sync to update carrier settings everytime I change SIM?

I want to ditch the Netbook but if I need to carry it round to Sync when i change SIM then whats the point? I might as well keep on using the netbook (with OSX of course ) and iPhone and save my money till Apple sorts this out.

Possible To Change Names Of Artists On Songs In ITunes?
In many of my older CD rips to iTunes my albums either come up with no names for the artists in compilation albums or the wrong ones - just as "Various artists", or some times just plain wrong: I've a whole album that lists Al Bowlby as the singer - he sings just one song! Sort of taking notes on each track in Free Notes, is there a way to do this directly in iTunes and have that show up in my iPad?

Need To Separate Two IDevices Into Separate ITunes Accounts
Currently we have an iPod and an iPad registered on the same iTunes account and sync'g on the same PC. My daughter uses the iPod while I use the ... well look at my username! it's come to the point where I don't want her music and apps, etc. sync'g on my iPad, and vice-versa.

I am thinking an easy way to manage this is if I use iTunes on a different PC.I probably need to open a new iTunes account, right? How do I tell my iPad to forget the current iTunes account it is linked to, and use a new account?

What about iTunes on PC 1? How do I tell it to forget about my iPad? Is there anything else I might need to be concerned about?

Change ITunes Language If General Language Is English But ITunes Is Not?
The language is set to English, but when I go into itunes or the apple store, the language is Japanese. I don't seem to be able to change this. my Japanese is not perfect t but it is reasonably decent and I can't see anything in iTunes or apple store where you can change the language. Also, I have not even set up the iTunes account yet - would it be a good idea to set it up as if I was based in the UK to ensure that the language is English? I have a credit card connected to a UK billing address so that would not be a problem.
