Notes for trouble shooting :
I’m sure by now you’ve figured out how to delete your credit card from your profile, but I’m going to share what I had to do, just in case anyone else is in the same pickle.
My cousin just got an iPhone 5 and couldn’t download any apps because it said that she had an invalid credit card on her account. Even free apps were unattainable because of this CC issue. She didn’t have access to a computer, so I took her iTunes login information so that I could look into it for her on my laptop. When I logged into her account, I saw that she had an outstanding bill from her old iPhone, which she lost last summer. The credit card that she had previously had linked to her account, was expired and has since been cut up. Luckily, her outstanding was only $9.03. So, what we did, was I payed her balance using my credit card. It accepted my CC without any problems, automatically paid the balance, and the “NONE” option immediately became available.
As soon as it was available, I clicked it, thus removing my CC from her account.
So, if you have a similar issue, maybe you can ask a friend to do this for you, too. It certainly beats having to create a second unnecessary iTunes account.
I really hope that this was helpful for someone!!!!
