    I'm an American abroad, living in South Korea. I have a US iTunes Store account. Just updated to iOS 6 and now my phone launches into the Korean App Store. Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Never mind. Seems all I had to do was try to buy something, and it rerouted my ID to the proper store.

    Don't scare me like that, it would be the one thing to stop me from upgrading.

    Same Problem

    Billy,

    I am in Korea, and I have the same problem. When I try to update apps, it tell me I have to go to the US Itunes Store, but it doesn't redirect me, even if I try to purchase an app. I don't know how to switch! Any ideas?
