is there anyway to get an itunes account without haveing to give out a form of payment?
I wondered about that myself since one can now receive downloads as gifts.
so if someone gifted me a song, i can get an account with out a form of payment?
I don't know... Like I said, I wondered about that myself.
yes you can as long as you if some kind of free song credits. So if you won songs on the pepsi promo for example you could create an account without a form of payment. I would assume it's the same for gift certificates.
jkelly, send me your email in a private message and I'll gift you a song to see if it works.
It works. That's how I got my account. Wonder if it'll work to make UK and Canada accounts too.
you can test it on me .
You already have an iTunes account.
you can test it on me m8
i was just bout to set up an account... but ill wait for you to send me that song first if u want
Thanks Eric, I just got the song.
I was able to create an account without having to enter any billing information. That account can now be used to download the free songs, but if I try to buy a song it tells me to update my billing info. Thanks again for the song .
afroahmed, please send me a free song from the UK iTMS. I only have an account from the US iTMS. And I tried to send you a free song, but you need a credit card. Using an account created from a gift song, gift certificate, gift card or allowance doesn't work; gifts can't pay for more gifts.
how did you get it to work? i can't seem to get it to stop asking me for billing info
I also wanted to download the free songs, but iTunes won't stop asking me for credit card info.
Can anyone gift me a song?
I can pay you on paypal the 99 cents. (My paypal is non credit card.)
If someone can help me I'd be grateful.
(PS; do I have to make another iTunes account in order for this to work?)
Doesn't iTMS take PayPal?
Only CC Paypal.
I got non CC
You need a gift certificate or other "free song" code. You go to Redeem, then create an account when prompted. It won't ask for billing information. Once you've created the account, you'll be able to get the free weekly downloads.
Perhaps it'd be easier to borrow a credit card from a friend or parent. You can buy yourself a gift certificate, so that you don't have to keep borrowing the card on a song-by-song basis.
I think there should be a sticky to request free song gifts.
Right, can anyone gift me a free song then?
Come on people, a free song.
Won't cost you even a penny...
i don't think that its possible to give one of the free songs that itunes offers as a gift.
Won't it be easier to find an iTunes promotion for a free song?
Thanks for the info Killuminati.
I tried that but it wouldn't work.
I'd like to get an iTunes account and pay with paypal, but every time i click to auth. paypal to pay iTunes, it asks to add a credit card. Adding a card costs 1.95, why would i want to pay an aditional $2 for a $1 song? Is there a way around this?
