New iOS products do not receive iWorks free.
Free iWorks comes with the new phones only. Not with iOS 7. To obtain them for free, buy one of the new iPhones when they're available.

The announcement stated that they would be free with IOS devices purchased after September 01. I purchased mine after the date but cannot download the apps without being charged. ANYONE?

Only devices that are purchased and activated on or after September 1, 2013 that are compatible with iOS 7 will receive the iWorks apps for free. If your device fits that criteria, try turning your device off and back on again. Make sure your device has been updated to iOS 7. Then go back to the App Store and search for Pages, Numbers, etc. They should show "free."
See the bottom of this page for details:
4. iPhoto, iMovie, Keynote, Pages, and Numbers are free on the App Store for qualifying iOS 7 compatible devices activated after September 1, 2013. See www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/for iOS 7 compatible devices. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID.
I hope this answers your question.

Hi, I have the same sort of question, but I am receiving my iPhone 5S tomorrow morning, and I also have an iPad Retina Display version, plus an iPhone 4s and and iPod. If I download the free versions of these and say, Numbers and Pages on the iPhone 5S, then does that mean that I can then download them automatically to the other devices? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Yes, you can install the apps on your other devices, once you download them to your new one. I just set up my new 5S, found the iWork apps on the App Store, and as soon as I 'purchased' them, they showed up as available for download on my iPad Mini.
If you have trouble finding them for free (as I did), go to the Featured tab, scroll down to the Apple Apps link, and you'll see all of them for free. They were full price, when I searched for them individually.
