If you don't already have an Apple ID here's how to create it An iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is the only way to get the "None" option. If you already have a payment option attached to an existing Apple ID, you can remove it. See Apple's support article Change or remove your payment information from your iTunes Store account (Apple ID)

There is no "None" option. You either have payment information attached to your Apple ID or you do not.

This seems like a pretty straightforward case where the phone needs to be serviced. Have you tried the restore troubleshooting assistant? https://www.apple.com/v20110427232717/support/iphone/assistant/restore/ Is there a reason why you don't follow the advice to get the hardware serviced?

I'm going to presume here that you are running a Windows PC with Windows 7 or later, based on the wording in your question (a little clarification would go a long way :) ). In the latest versions of Windows (from Vista onwards), Microsoft introduced 'User Account Control', or UAC for short. This was to prevent malware and viruses from making unauthorised ...

This happens when a application (like iTunes) or other try to modify your hard drive and install files on it, but your settings are such to prevent that. It is advisable to set that alert so to prevent applications installing without your explicit approval. The settings are in the system preferences - Security & Privacy - general tab. Here you can set ...

At the end of your script, replace "as string" with "as Unicode string". And try. If this does not solve your problem, try with "as Unicode text".

I changed the file type to 'Audiobook', (Right click on the file in iTunes, Get Info, Options, then change 'media kind' to audiobook') and then it allowed me to drag and drop the file on to my iPhone in iTunes. Then, in the Music app on the iPhone, tap 'More' in the bottom right corner, and 'audiobooks' will appear in the list. Took about an hour of faffing ...

This is a tricky question to answer as it depends on what you use that ID for. If it is just for iTunes Store purchases, then all she will be able to access is whatever you have purchased on the store. Of course, this isn't limited to Music, but also Movies, TV Shows, Books and Apps. She will also be able to authorise purchases using that ID and password and ...

I've run into this problem before. I believe it has to do with the library file that's created on your Mac when iTunes is ran for the first time. How I usually get over it is to do "File>Add to Library" and then pointing it to the folder with my iTunes media in it. This allows iTunes to create a new library file unique to the machine.

Hold alt (option) while opening iTunes, a window will open allowing you to select your iTunes library. Make sure you're iTunes is up to date as well.

I had the same problem and was able to solve it by deleting iTunes and reinstalling. The Finder tries quite hard to stop you from deleting iTunes; instead you can open Terminal.app and 'sudo rm -rf /Applications/iTunes.app'. You can download the replacement copy of iTunes from https://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

If you have Photostream turned on and set it to download Photostream photos, then iPhoto will put them in an Event by month. It will look similar to other photo Events that you've created. iCloud Photo Library sees these as just normal photos and will upload them. Everything in the System Library (which means the default Photos library) will get uploaded, so ...

Same issue. To manage the music/video manually: Connect the iPhone to your Mac. Open iTunes. Select the iPhone using the Device menu in the top-left. Click the Summary option and select Manually Manage Music and Videos. Click Apply. I've tried FonePaw iOS Transfer, which can let me bypass iTuns restrictions.

As a temporary solution, you can execute iTunes binary directly by doing /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/MacOS/iTunes in the terminal. Code -10699 returned by open -a iTunes indicates some error in Launch Services (similar error codes are documented but the very thing is not). Executing binary in this way somehow sidesteps the problem.

No, sorry, but your our of luck. Unless your phone was jailbroken and you had an app that allowed for what your explaining, theres no way to can instal and app on your device remotely, not to mention that you WILL need setup when you install an app like that.

Sign out. Search for any free app. Select "Get" and "Install App". You should see screen, that you need to log in to download. Select "Create New Apple ID". You should see "None" option when selecting payment method. Activate Apple ID and you have created new Apple ID for your son. Then just sign out from son's Apple ID and log in to yours.

The set of available columns appears to be fixed, and there is no language column. But the way to change the set of displayed columns is by contextual menu (right-click) on the column headers. (At least in 12.1—Apple seems to take pleasure in making sure we can't ever get accustomed to any particular UI for iTunes.) There is a "category" column which I ...

The answer depends. If you are using an apple email (such as me.com, iCLoud.com, mac.com, etc) then that email address is by default an apple id, and I don't know of a way to edit it. If you are using a 3rd party email address (such as hotmail, gmail, yahoo, your own domain etc) as your appleid, then you should first TURN OFF FindMyIPhone on your device if ...

There are two ways I can see you getting out of this jam if Tyson's answer on the normal method fails you: Contact your email provider and explain the dilemma. Say you'll need delivery of the "broken" email for several hours while you change the AppleID to be the correct email. That way you can receive the validation emails from Apple. Contact Apple ...

Going along with Stuart H's comment, I believe the music app for iOS only looks for explicit tags on a song because they can be used for setting restrictions on the device, clean tags are unnecessary because the songs are considered to be clean unless an explicit tag is found. So having a tag for every song would be pretty useless and clutter up the UI.

The simple manner to do this is to make a folder containing one photo on your laptop desktop. Then tell iTunes to sync photos from that folder. That will delete all locally stored photos and albums (other than the camera roll). Also, you might update to iOS 8.3 which allows you to manage your entire Photo Library in the cloud in which case you can delete ...

The EtreCheck scan has found multiple pieces of adware on your Mac, remove them all. My guess is that one of these adware were trying to hook into the iTunes executable (or the operating system itself) and causing the crashes when iTunes was trying to terminate. You can find instructions on how to remove Conduit here. I'd remove this first and then open the ...

I have the same experience with my iPhone disconnecting from iTunes. It returns, however, after rebooting the iPhone. This faster than the cable connecting and then trying wi-fi.

I had the same problem with TL-WPA4220 - the powerline wifi didn't seem to be passing multicast traffic to and from my Macbook Air (including Sonos, AirPlay to Apple TV, Dropbox LAN sync, and plain ping 192.168.1.255). I tried reducing the TL-WPA4220 from 40MHz to 20MHz, and I don't know why, but everything seems to be working now: As part of basic RF ...

I've been fiddling with this all day - so far all I can say is 'I agree, Finder search does not find files by bit rate or depth'. MediaInfo will tell you - but that would be really tedious. I did notice too, that the 'Bits per Sample' flag in Finder's column view always just shows a double dash '--' It's fine for AIF & WAV, but not FLAC, ALAC, MP3 etc ...

You could try family sharing on Icloud, the same thing sort of happened to me. I had bought all of my previous music on my dads Itunes account and then I made my own. Everything was fine until I switched phones and none of my music switched with it, so I just redownloaded it from my dads account. But since I had set my phone up with my apple ID, it was now ...

No. There's no cross-pollination of Apple IDs. Best you could probably do is set up Family Sharing & invite your other account into that 'family'

Ring the phone number, let the original owner know you 'found' it. If the number doesn't work, hand it in to the police. There is no way to bypass the activation lock. Consider the £250 a lesson learned.

You can't do anything. It wouldn't be a very good deterrent against theft if you could bypass the activation lock. Don't buy stolen goods in the future.

patrix, Try selecting NONE of the podcasts. Click on an empty spot in iTunes and then change "Settings..." That should change the defaults for podcasts you subscribe to in the future.

I found another solution that may be good for some people.

You might also have to de authorise your iTunes, and authorise it with your friend's Apple ID when ...

Assuming you want a source of radio stations that will play through iTunes, SHOUTcast is as good a starting point as any. Go for the .M3U streams, these will open and play in iTunes.
