iPads in Education - New Apple Account, No Credit Card Payment Selection

Do you want to use an Apple account without a credit card (only going to use fee apps or apps redeemed from the volume purchase program)?  You can either create a new account OR modify an existing account so that no credit card is listed as a form of automatic payment. This can be useful if it is in the hands of children (it is how we set up the account we use on our own kids' iPod Touches) as there is no fear of them "accidentally" purchasing apps and charging it back to a credit card. 

Set up a new Apple account not associated with a credit card:
  • On a device,go to the iTunes Store and find a free app (this is while the device does not have any account signed in)
  • Click on the free button next to the app
  • Click on Install App
  • Select Create New Apple ID
  • Select your Country, then accept the User Agreement
  • Fill out the information for the new account (name, password, birthday, etc)
  • The next screen will have Billing Information.  If you click on Visa (the default choice), you will get a list of choices.  The bottom one is None, select this
  • Continue to fill out the account information until finished. 
  • You will need to verify the account once created via a link in an email sent to you.
