I created my Apple ID when I was in France with a french credit card. Now I live in Japan. My french credit card has expired. I don't want to switch to Japanese Apple store as I understand Japanese. But even when I am trying to download free apps on my iPhone, it asks for my French credit card information and because I don't have one, I am not able to download any more apps on my iPhone.

Any possible solutions? I contacted Apple support and they said there is no solution other than getting a French credit card, which I cannot.

Under payment type there is an option "none" to have no credit card information stored. It will let you download free apps and prompt for credit card for paid ones.
