I have create my apple Id online using chrome and not from the App store or Itunes. Now when i try to download any free app from the app store it gives me a error that the Apple id i am using has never been used before. It takes me to a different page where i have to agree to the agreement and demands the credit card info on the next screen where the "none" option is not available.

Creation of Apple ID does not mean you've created an App store account, so when creating a App store account one you'll need to setup payment information either using a credit card or a debit card if you're creating an Indian Apple app store account. Payment setup is done to ease the process of buying content/apps later while using the store. The initial setup does not require you to make any payments.

None option for payment type is not available for the Indian users. It's been this way for a very long time. Although if you really had no other choice, You could create an apple account with US app store and select None as the payment choice.

  • Even after changing the location to US there is still no "none" option. Only "Paypal" has been added. – Krill Dec 17 '14 at 18:04
  • @Krill start over. Create a new apple store account. If you try to switch on the existing account, it does not appear usually. – Jash Jacob Dec 18 '14 at 1:13
