    or you could try to download a free app on your pc and just click 'none' when asked for your card details

    This worked for me TODAY, so it should work. Sign out if you're in a Apple Id already (settings, store, sign out). Then go into the app store, download a free app. It'll ask if you want to make an Id or use an existing one (note this wont work for an existing one, you have to make one. Also note you can't delete an Apple Id, if you just made a new one 5 seconds ago before going to the store, you need to make ANOTHER one.), choose make, go through the process and once you get to the part with Credit card information; it gives you a None option, take it. Do the other stuff and you're done. One Apple Id without a Credit card.

    You can open an account if you have a gift card.  So, if you purchase a $10 gift card, you put the code in where indicated (it is under where you are prompted to put in the credit card information).  After you do this, and put in your address information and submit.  You will then get the screen again, with the credit card section highlighted in red, but now the "None" button will appear (the one referenced in other posts).  Hit None, and then you will be good to go.

    To add to my first post, you need to go to apple.com and create an apple id.  Then go to the Itunes store and sign in.  It will prompt you to review your account information.  Do this, agree to the terms and service and it will take you to payment information.  There is a prompt to redeem code.  This is where you will need to put your gift card code.  You can buy a $10 gift card.  Put the code in, then add a title and phone number to the address information and hit continue.  It will take you back to the same screen and highlight in red the credit card information.  However, now the "None" button will appear.  Select it and push continue.  It will then take you back to the same screen, but the credit card input boxes will be gone.  Then you have to push continue again, and you should be good to go.  So, it will cost $10 for the gift card, but you won't have to use a credit card.

    If all you want to avoid is using a credit card, just use iTunes gift cards. I don't even have a credit card on my iTunes account, just use gift cards.

    -Hope this helps.

    Thank you very much for explainng this. So much for Apple's fame for user-friendly interfaces, laughing out so loud I am falling off my chair.

     

    As part of their money-grabbing madness the world's richest company has made it virtually impossible to use their appStore without entering credit card details. I wonder how many parents filled in their credit card details in desperation this Christmas to get their kid's iDevice going, creating terrible problems for the future. Mark my words, these guys are bandits.

    Hi,

     

    My ipod touch got updated to the OS and then the None tab doesnt appear. In order to get it there, you have to change your current Apple ID. To do that"

     

    Settings>General>Itunes and App Stores>(Tap Your Current Apple ID, and then tap View)> (Tap your Apple ID and change it)

     

    Hope that helps with your question?

    I already did Ipod Touch, now all you have to do is, pick your problem and ask apple.
