Just got a new iphone 3gs
i put money in my itunes account via itunes gift cards
i currently have a blanace or 12 dollars, i bought a song the other day and everything was fine, i can download free apps as well

today i tried to buy an app that cost 4.99, and it keeps directing me to sign in and complete billing information. so i sign in, and i leave the cread card to "none" cause i dont want to give out credit card, especially since i have a balance of money in there allready.

how come i cant buy an app ?

iphone, iPhone OS 3.0
