    I cant even get connected. It asks for a card but i have plenty of itunes cards with money on them. According to Apple if i have cards with money i wont need a CC. just trying to get the damn thing set up and its taking too much effort

    any ideas...

    Are you saying "It asks for a credit card but i have plenty of itunes gift cards with money on them. According to Apple if i have gift cards with money i wont need a credit card. Just trying to get the thing set up"?

    Seems to me that you need a credit card to be linked.

    You're not really missing much right now, anyway. It's kind of a mess. Many apps aren't shareable and most songs don't download.

    But, my understanding is you have to have a CC associated with the main account, regardless of the presence of gift cards.
