Make an iTunes/App store account without using your credit card

Categories Hacks and tips and waiters, No more doctors
Step #1 iTunes store home screen.

Ok, so you just bought an iPod or an iPhone. The first thing you would want to do is install games and applications. For that you need an iTunes account. To make an account on iTunes you require a Credit Card. I personally don’t have one, and I wouldn’t want to borrow one (who would give one, anyway?).So how do you bypass this? In simple language, How can one make an iTunes/App store account without a credit card? This post will tell you exactly that. Even if you have limited knowledge of computer, you won’t have a problem in understanding this guide.

What you require: A computer with an internet connection and iTunes 9.In case you don’t have the latter you can download it from here. I cannot help if you don’t have the former….

A note before I start this guide: Do exactly as told, I know you have immense knowledge of computers, but please taking one step wrong or skipping a step will result in iTunes asking you for a credit card, which surely you don’t want to see happening.

Step #1 Open iTunes. Head over to the iTunes store. On top, just below the Apple logo, ”App Store” is written. Click and open it. (Refer to photos, if in doubt)

Step #2 Now you should be in the App Store. If you are not sure or just want to confirm, this is what it looks like. (Refer to image with name Step #2).Now look for free apps, in the right hand down corner. Open the first free app. (Refer to photos, if in doubt)

Step #3 You should have been taken to the app. There must be “Get App” or “Free App” button. Click it. (Refer to photos, if in doubt)

Step #6 You will be redirected to TOS (Terms Of Service) page. At this page you will get the option to choose your country. I recommend you to choose US. The reason why I asked you to choose US? You’ll get to know in a minute. To change, country, there is an option on top. Go there, choose US and come back. Now tick the “I have read………..condition” and click “Continue”

Step #7 You will now be redirected to a form. Fill it correctly especially the E-mail id.

I'd recommend to fill Everything correct in the iTunes App Store sign up form especially the E-mail address because Apple will dispatch a verification message to this id.

  6. Good post. I was writing one too, before the iPod Touch (and thus, apps) came, using a free coupon code. Here's a tip. I feel it is better to post the pictures just below the indicated step, instead of publishing the gallery.

    1. "I feel it is better to post the pictures just below the indicated step, instead of publishing the gallery."

      I totally agree with you.But somehow,I was not able to do that.Once a picture failed,to load.other time I couldn't insert it into the post.So,I thouht I'll manage with the gallery for now and update the post when I get the hang of it.

      But chill!! It's only my third post 😀
