    Is it true that if I “none” my credit card, my son will no longer be able to use the apps he already owns?

    • Edu 18 December 2012 at 3:41 am #

      that’s not true.. you will still be able to use all the apps you already bought even if you change the payment info to “none”

    I had a debit card in itunes it expired so I decided to not use another credit card and just buy a gift card. I was able to add the gift card and it shows the amount available but when I go to purchase it redirects me back to the cc information. UGGH

    make sure that you still have enough credit on your credit card, and your CC is issued on the same iTunes Store country.

    You can only access iTunes US if your CC is issued in the US, same with Philippines, and Indonesia.

    I deleted my credit card info from my sons itunes account so he only uses a gift card, however if he goes over his gift card it then takes out the balance from my credit card, how is this possible when I’ve gone in and told the itunes account to use none?

    there is no option for no credit card

  16. charina de goma 16 November 2010 at 2:31 am #

    this was helpful. at first, i was so worried that if i put my credit card information, somebody might get hold of it and use it for fraud. my question now is, if i have successfully edited my mode of payment to “none”, will that be safe? will apple not bill me anymore?

    • Edu Mansanas 16 November 2010 at 3:28 am #

      @Charina de goma, yes that’s correct.. you can’t buy anything unless you put in another payment method.
