    So I downloaded a 2.99 app using the app store in my iphone, It said the price so I tapped it and then it said download, it asked me for my password and seconds later it was downloaded and fully working.

    I checked my paypal and I was never charged... why?

    There may be a delay, or its possible the developer changed the price at the moment you downloaded it to "free."

    Former: Wait for it
    Later: Cool for you

    Apple only collects every couple days. That way they don't have to pay credit card fees on every $0.99 transaction. So they wait awhile, see if you accumulate more, then charge them all together.

    +1 ^^^ Even the free apps take a few days; and sometimes a week or more. So, don't worry, Apple always gets their $2.99.....:eek::eek::eek:

    You're really not going to tell us what the $2.99 app was?!

    I'm sure it is just backed up. You'll be charged for it. No need to worry. ;)

    This is why I only buy iTunes gift cards... I hate small random charges on my credit card.

    The authorities have been notified.

    Your openness and honestly will not go unnoticed, however - I will try to have your sentence lightened (if at all possible).

    I know, I know! I'm clenching my fists over here guys! Shaking them in fury!!

    I will produce better "lulz" for iforget in the future, since he obviously has NO TOLERANCE for anything less.
