I have an iPhone 4S and I changed to the US store to view an app not available in the SA store. Now I cannot change back to the SA store. The message comes up that I need to change with no directions on how to do this.
How can I change stores?

this Apple support page would be a place to start.

In the Settings app:

  • tap Store in the sidebar
  • tap your Apple ID on the right
  • tap View Apple ID
  • enter password if required
  • tap Country/Region

You will need a valid payment method on file for the country you're changing to, which I assume you already have.
