I just bought a macbook pro yesterday and conected my apple ID that I created for my iphone. I was able to input iTunes gift card and use the balance fine but today sudnly I canoot download anything even free apps and I still have 15$ in my account left from the 25$ gift card. Every time I try to install a free or non free it goes to my billing page and ask me to input a credit card, if I select non and done it gives me an error to contact suport.
Need help with free apps, that you cant download without money on your credit card, mine is a debit card, and the only time I can download fee apps is when I have money on my card, so these aren't free, so help me here, tired of trying to download free apps, also got an iTunes gift card, and what are they actually used for?
Why? Also free apps are not downloadable while all other options on the info pages works? If I remember well, while opening my apple ID i made some settings? Unfortunately I can't find it back and do not know how to change it.
The app store on my Mac Mini (2.7GHZ I7 running 10.7.4) tells me I have 3 apps that need to be updated. Whenever I try to update them, I get an error message that reads " We could not complete your request. There was an error in the App Store. Please try again later. (13). I've gone online and saw that some people were fixing the problem by erasing some kind of hidden cookie. It seems to be somwhere in /library/Cookies file but I don't have a file in my library labeled "cookies". I also saw another post where they tried to delete it in terminal, but that had no effect for me.
Error "The file “DMAccount.h” couldn’t be saved in the folder “Headers”" after 10.7.3 update. While app update download starts normaly the error msg pops up every time right at the end of download process and it starts all over (dnld-error-dnld-error... ("Try again", she asks me)).
Under purchases I'm getting "you have not purchased any apps." Under Itunes in the Cloud all my apps are listed as hidden but when I click "view hidden purchases" it says I do not have any hidden purchases. I have three Macs and all are experiencing the same issue so this is an account problem and not a computer software problem. The funny thing is that it's still recognizing updates.Yes, I've tried signing out and back in to view my account with no luck. The only thing I did weird last night was I disabled the Itunes store and automatic downloading on one computer. This morning when I had the above problem I put all the settings back.
Receiving individual Final Cut X redemption codes for our fleet of MAC Minis begs the question; "How do we deploy this software". There must be a better(easier faster way) than to download, install and configure each machine separately. (This will take weeks). This software cannot, it seems, be deployed by Apple Remote Desktop. Is there anyway of downloading FC X to one MAC and cloning the image to the rest of the fleet?
Trying to re-install Twitter from the Mac App Store. When I click "install" I get a prompt to type in my Apple ID (pre-filled with email@example.com; NOT ME). When I type my correct Apple ID and password in I get an "Error -4" message followed by "Unknown Error" message.
I have NO clue who firstname.lastname@example.org is. My account has not been hacked (at least no unauthorized purchases have been made). When I view my previously purchased apps, I see the whole list, Twitter, included...but I can't seem to download it.
Here's what I'm running:
Mac OS X 10.6.8 App Store 1.0.2 (63.1)
Here's what I've tried. Signing out of the App Store and signing back in.Signing out of the App Store and not signing back in until I try to download the App. Signing out of iTunes (trying everything). Restarting. What else is causing these errors?
My Macbook Air will arrive sometime this month, and I've gone for the 64GB SSD 11" model.
I've noticed a few people saying they have reinstalled OS X when their machine has arrived to remove the bundled apps and get some drive space.
I have never had a machine with an SSD before, and I was just wondering whether doing a clean install would affect the performance of the Macbook at all? I've heard stories about how certain things can degrade the performance of the SSD, but I don't really understand the technology yet.
As this is only going to be a portable writing machine, I certainly don't need any of iLife or the other apps that come pre-installed.
If I upgrade Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion (on a 2009 MacBook 5.2), is the update limited to OS X or can I also expect to see upgrades to free apps like Address Book, Mail and iCal? If the free apps do not change to match the latest versions available, can I expect updates to the free apps soon?
So a few months back my old mac mini decided to crap out on me and I was computer-less for those few months. Since my money situation isnt too good right now (unemployed, live at my grandmas and my dad supports me. Im 21 btw) I didnt bother getting it fixed until recently. Keep in mind the computer is out of warranty and I dont have Apple Care. So I eventually took it to the apple store and they said the logic board was fried and possibly the ram. They quoted me at $317 for a new logic board. I told them I'll give it a wait because I cant afford it. So a few weeks later I decide to go back and ask if I can get it done for a cheaper price. They told me they can do it for $217 with just the logic board replaced and if it needs ram they will tell me. They end up calling me telling me to pic it up and that the price is $377. I told them no, they told me they'll do it for 217. She tells me they had to replace the ram as well and thats why the price was higher. So I told her that as long as the computer still works with the old ram just put back the old ram and Ill pay the $217....
So I get a call back today saying I can pick it up. I ask them just to make sure how much the price was. She says no charge. So im of course confused and ask to speak to the person who repaired it. She tells me that since mac mini's are hard to open and shouldnt be opened a bunch of times that they just left it with the new logic board and ram and decided to do it for free given the small hassle I had with them. I couldnt believe it! It was a $377 dollar job and they just let it slide.
I tried to install a free application from the apple store, I was asked to enter the billing information even if free, gave all the details, chose visa as method of payment but I had a note saying that my method of payment is invalid. Why?
I want to be able to check the downloads that I put on iPad if they were free or paid for when I first downloaded them. It is another way of checking if my 8-year-old son had downloaded apps that were not free!
When I bought my Macbook Pro on Thursday I also purchased Pages whilst in the Apple store in town. The assistant helped me start the installation whilst I was there and he told me that it would continue when I got home, even if i shut the laptop down there. So this is what I did, however, since I've been home, every time I click Install on Pages in the App Store a message comes up saying : "There was an error in the App Store. Please try again later." Another thing I should mention is that I purchased Pages on a different Apple ID account when I was in the store, but I was told I only had to log in to that account from my Macbook Pro and I could easily download Pages.
I want to upload a free application on the App Store, and you ask me credit card number, even if the product is free. I don't have credit card, and I would like to know if I can do without this. Could you explain me why you need credit card number for a free application?
