This question already has an answer here:

After creating an Apple ID in another location, I am forced to enter payment information in the iOS, Mac, and iTunes stores.

Even when trying to purchase a Free app, I am forced to enter payment information, and the None option is not present.

I am in the US.

This question was merged with Unable to change payment information to NONE in iOS Appstore because it is an exact duplicate of that question.
