Account not in this store


"account not in this store" solution

The notification ( error ) appears while trying to install application from app store after i installed new iOS 6 on my ipod touch device ( can happen for iphone or ipad ).

Full message could look like this:
You account is not valid for use in the Polish store. You must switch to U.K. store.
You account is not valid for use in the Lithuanian store. You must switch to U.K. store.
You account is not valid for use in the store. You must switch to U.K. store.
with main title of notification - Account not in this store

To solve the problem follow the instuction:

Method 1

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to iTunes & App Stores
  3. Click on your Apple ID
  4. In poped up window click Sign Out.
  5. Fill your Apple ID and Password and press Sign In
  6. Done. Now you will be able to download applications from App Store

Method 2

Thanks to Ami Hauptman for method 2
  1. In Settings>Appstore> click on your AppleId
  2. Select "Show AppleId"
  3. Click "Country\Region", then "Change Country or Region"
  4. Select your country, then provide Credit Card info (typically you will only need the security code)
  5. Complete this process
  6. Go back to the AppStore. Should work fine by now

  3. Hi, I am still facing the same issue although I have followed the above steps. I cannot update my apps as it says account not in this store. Am outside US now and it says I need to use the Emirati store, which basically has not mich in it!!

    When i go to featured, apple id and i click on the contry/region where the US flag appears, i get a message that says that I have some balance left and I cannot change the location before using that balance. Could that be the issue?

    Pls help !!!

    1. I've moved to Bangkok 8 mos ago so this is a procedure I will probably eventually have to do. The 1st method worked for me though.
