    I'm sure this has been mentioned by after searching for 30mins I couldn't find it so I do apologize if this is a repeat thread.

    Just got iphone 3G and the app store button takes me to the US store even after logging in with my UK username. How can I get it so the uk store comes up, or at least can transfer to the UK store from the US one?

    Many thanks

    you need to change it in iTunes. I assume you're trying to change it on the phone? :)

    On ipod touch 3.x
    Settings -> Store -> Log Out -> Log In -> fill in the other account use name and password.
    I have both UK and EST accounts. Software update only updates apps bought by using one of them.

    To answer the posters original question, I just found myself in the same situation, somehow stuck in the US store, when I should be in the UK store.

    1. Make sure to close the App Store app first
    2. Go to Settings > iTunes & App Stores > Log out and log back in again.
    3. Reload App Store, everything should now be in £'s

    I needed to change the countries frequently to check my apps, so I put together a little Web App with 1-click region switching for myself. Maybe it's also helpful for you.
