Hi im just starting with the iPhone SDK and i was making some test apps and they ran perfectly in the iphone simulator on my computer but when i switch it to the "Device" it says "Code Sign error: The identity 'iPhone Developer' doesn't match any valid certificate/private key pair in the default keychain." in the build results section.

Does anyone know how i can fix this?Annoyed

You need to signup for the iPhone developer program and follow the cert steps.

Unfortunately deploying to a device is not as simple as selecting the device build settings and building.

Firstly you need to sign up for the developer program and pay the US$99 fee. If you have already done this and been accepted into the program you need to carefuly follow the instructions in the iPhone Developer Program Portal for registering a device, setting up a development certificate and creating a provisioning profile.

If you have registered and installed everything and still get that error, open up KeyChain Access.app and check that the "login" keychain is displayed in bold. If not, left-click it and select "Make Keychain "login" Default".

I've found/read that unrelated apps can cause your login keychain to loose its default status at any time and cause Xcode to choke with that error.
