    I believe you need a credit card entered in your iTunes account, or a positive iTunes Card balance. This is true whether the is free or not. If you set up a credit card it will charge you $1 then immediately refund it. This is to make sure the account is valid.

    You could try this if you don't want to use a credit card.

    Create an iTunes App Store account without a credit card

    I suppose I could rant about it, but Apple is hardly the only store that requires valid financial data before it will let you download anything, free or not.

    When mine did that on my iPad I changed my credit card info to "none" and it stopped asking.

    Do you have some iTunes store credit, like you get when redeeming a gift card?

    When I first began using my iPad with iTunes I did not have a credit card associated with it. I downloaded tons of free apps before getting an itunes card. When I custom ordered my Mac air I used a credit card. From then on I had a credit card on my itunes account. While making iTunes purchases, I always use iTunes cards I began getting prompts to update my credit card info security number. I just changed the credit card info to none and haven't been prompted since. I usually look for iTunes card deals. Recently I was able to buy 25 dollar iTunes cards at Gamestop for 20 bucks. Sometimes a get 3 pack of 10 dollar iTunes cards for about 27 bucks. All this started when I got my iPad 1 so perhaps things have changed since then?

    Thanks.

    I wanted to know so that I could avoid giving wrong information.. It appears I was wrong about needing a positive balance in the store. We'll have to wait and see if changing the credit card info to none works for the OP.
