Gave my sons a touch for bday. 10 and 6. Their thanks was 60 bucks in in app purchase! (little one grabbed it from wifes purse without asking-settings not fixed yet) is there a way to refund? or at least maybe settle? or find out *** it is he bought???? cant tell that he got anything at all for this trouble.
seriously. What in the holy hairy f*** do you get for 60 f**kin dollars in a game called "penguin race"? for 60 bucks, I better be able to ride a real g** damned penguin!
yah yah yah my fault I get it... is there no recourse at all?
i didnt realize this could be done even.... so noob error.
any help, or even just a shoulder to cry on....I appreciate it.
Apple allows apps to list themselves as "Free" if the initial download is free, even if the app has kid-oriented inducements for costly in-app purchases. The in-app purchases are almost always ridiculous, over-priced game accessories, of which your example is right up there (especially since it was not even a real penguin). It is way too caveat emptor for my taste, but each consumer can form their own opinion on that.
To Apple's credit, they have a good record of granting refunds provided you explain the extenuating circumstances (unintentional purchase by a minor) and only ask once. Contact iTunes Customer Service.
Please let us know how you make out on the refund request.
