    Okay so, me and my brother used hid debit card to buy an app. I thought he had enough on there and so did he. Now i was able to download and use the app(Game Maker), But i had to reinstall snow leopard. Now i tried to install the app again but it said before i can download any apps even free ones, i need to verify my account info. Now when i enter the pin number for the debit card, it says "Enter a valid PIN" I Did I am 100% sure. Any help would be appreciated, i can't even download my recently purchased apps. I opened iTunes and it won't let me check "None" for the payment type. Can i remove the debit card or something?

    I don't think that you can use debit cards with iTunes, unless it is a debit Visa/Mastercard. Apple wouldn't ask you for your pin, they are probably asking for your card security code (CSC). This is located on the back of your card to the right of the signature strip, and is a group of three digits.

    How do Mac uses located at India gets applications from iStore & iTunes


    Most of the India Mac users will not be having credit card, this being the case how can they get application via istore and itunes, do there exists an alternative.

    Can the local debit card with Maestro logo can be used instead of the credit card. This card does have the CCS located at the back of the card to the right of the signature strip. Only the Debit Card number is there.

    So how to carter the needs of Indian users of Mac
