    I dont use the iTunes store for music and I only want free apps from the App Store but it needs a iTunes account for them! I dont want to give Apple my credit card details or anything, I just want free apps!

    Any way to get them without a iTunes Store account?

    Apple hopes you'll think otherwise and try out the rest of their store. With your credit card or credit already on file, that'll make it that much easier.

    It you buy an iTunes card, you can redeem it without entering credit card info.

    There are also ways to set up a free iTunes account, without having to buy any iTunes cards or entering credit card details!

    Just Google: Free iTunes Account

    Paranoid are we?! I'm from the UK and I used this method to get my hands on an American iTunes account (apparently I live in Cupertino) and I've had no problems. The links you find simply give you codes to redeem in the iTunes store, simply fill in the code and make an account...not sure how you think you could be scammed.

    You need to fill in a valid US address when you create an account....that or try to find a redeem code from a UK source. I have 2 accounts, a US and UK. A US account will get you access to the apps, you can also order iTunes cards from various sources so you can use your US account to get things that you can't get from the UK store.....of course you're not supposed to do this, but meh!
