    I downloaded skype today and was charged for it , although it was written free on it.. This has happened with a few more applications too.

    I'd be inclined to drop an email to Apple.

    When you get your email from Apple store with this charge, you will have an option to report a problem with the transaction. By using this reply to email, Apple will have a 'paper trail' to investigate. I have had a similar problem on an app that I thought was usable on an iPad but as it turned out after getting it, the app was for an iPad with a camera. After explaining my problem, Apple refunded the app.

    There may a fee in the fine print. You might want to check for that first so you have a better way to plead your case.

    So is it possible that the fine print is more expensive than the "miss charged" money that might be refunded?
