    Hi folks

    I have researched this loads on the internet and cannot find an answer which fits my situation.
    I live in the UK but whenever I do a search for apps or TRY TO UPDATE EXISTING APPS

    My IPhone 4s gives me this message whenever I try to buy anything or update already installed apps

    ACCOUNT NOT IN THIS STORE
    YOUR ACCOUNT IS NOT VALID FOR US IN THE U.S STORE. YOU MUST SWTICH TO THE U.K STORE BEFORE PURCHASING

    I have tried logging into ITunes and making sure my account is set for the UK
    It is

    I have been into Settings -
    iTunes and app store-
    but my Apple id is in light grey and I cannot click on it to change anything
    I have the latest IOS on the phone
    It's driving me insane! I can't get new books, apps or even update the ones ?I have!!!!

    To add to this I cannot sync the phone with the computer. It says an error has occurred.
    I have also read up on this and deleted any recent photos/videos



    Pleaassseeee help me

    You might have to wipe the phone and restore from backup.

    On a computer go to appleid.apple.com and manage Apple ID and update your country there. Let me know if this resolves the problem.
