    Ok so I have $3.59 on my debit card so I want to buy an app that cost .99. It asks for my billing info and 3 digit security code and I enter in the SAME one I have used to buy 3 other apps before this :mad: this most recent time, it says invalid security code no matter how many times I try to close it out and try again! I even tried putting in my pin number just in case they meant that instead. I checked my address and debit card info and it has not changed since the last time I successfully bought an app.

    Some people say to change your payment method but I don't have one! :( plus, I don't see why all of a sudden they would stop taking my debit card when it worked before. Some people also say to change your settings somehow but where exactly IS the app store settings button??

    You try it from the iPad or from within iTunes?

    Sorry, no experience that way. I did set up using iTunes, there I also set up my payment method and have since never been asked for payment...

    On the other side, within iTunes App on your iPad there is the possibility to insert the code of an iTunes card which you can purchase (prepaid) at different stores, which will then be an amount you have available for purchases on your Apple ID...
