    i was wondering if you need a credit card to download the free apps for iphone 3g because when i go try to make an account it keeps asking for a credit card and dont think i should need to add one to download something free

    It's been a long while since I set up my iTunes account. When I first set it up I put my card number in there, so it would bill me appropriately for what I buy. I'm assuming they just want that info in there in case you do try to buy something? :confused:

    If you feel unsafe putting your info in there, I've had an account with them for a while and have never had any problems at all with being billed for anything that I didn't agree to buy. ;)

    You have to have a credit card on file in order to open an account with the iTunes Store. You need an account with the iTunes Store to download free apps.
    Therefore you need a credit card to download free apps. A little weird, but that's just the way it is.
