    Disclaimer - For me the Apple Support Communities are an international user to user technical support forum. As a man from Mexico my first language is Spanish. I do not speak English, however I do write in English with the aid of the Mac OS X spelling and grammar checks. I also live in a culture very different from that found in most 1st world nations, such as that in the two dominant North American countries. Written language has no tone. When offering advice in the ASC, my comments are not meant to be anything more than helpful and certainly not to be taken as insults.


    If you try to use an existing Apple ID, you have to supply a bank card, even for free apps. Period, there is no way to get around this.


    If you create a new Apple ID for an iTunes Store account you can follow Apple's instructions for creating an account that does not require a bank card.

    Creating an Apple ID for an iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store account without a credit card -
