    I bought an iPod touch a little over a year ago while I was living in Brazil (I am from the U.S. and now living back in the States). When I registered with the Apple Store it automatically made the Brazil Store as my default Apple store. Now I cannot figure out how to switch the account to the United States. Whenever I search for an app, Portuguese results appear first.

    Now I just got the iPad 2 and accidentally set it up under the exact same account, so I have the same issue on my iPad now. How can I switch to the U.S. store or just set up a new account? I do not see any options to set up a new account and really want to be linked with the U.S. Store.

    Thank you!

    That's right, I forgot that I had used a Brazilian card to set up the account. However, I am still having troubles getting the store changed. I changed the payment information to an American card, but it will only allow me to choose among Brazilian states and zip codes (CEP) for my billing information. So when I try download an app it asks me to make corrections to the billing information, but the field options all assume I am in Brazil. The store categories are still in Portuguese as well. What must I do yet?

    Thanks again,
