    Starting yesterday, when trying to download an app, account verification was needed- it asked for my credit card's security code, but won't accept it. Then I heard that a friend was experience the same thing, I googled it and found that this happens from time, but there are reports of this happening again since Dec 26th, which may possibly related to a server overload with all of the new iOS devices accessing the app store/iTunes/iBooks at the same time (just a guess)

    Is anyone one else noticing this for themselves?

    This isn't happening to me right now but it happened to me a while ago. It may very well be an issue of server overload because of all the gifted iOS devices but you may want to check your bank just in case. That solved the problem for me before.
