"your payment method was declined"

i have been downloading paid and free apps from the app store without any problems.Last week my brother updated my card info(changed the card's expiry date or somethin) and as a result i have an outstanding balance of 99 cents.The problem is today i entered the correct credit card no. but it still gives me the same message ""your payment method was declined.Pls enter valid payment method information".So i can't purchase any new apps or update my existing apps. I have no idea what to do.Pls help!!

I would powerbomb my brother through a thin plywood table....it's the only way to be sure he doesn't do it again.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

I would make sure you fill out all of your info again. This happened once to me, then I realized my card had expired. I'm sure this doesn't aply to you but definitely start from stratch and you never know, this might fix something you hadn't noticed.

This may sound stupid, but change your account's email address and change it back. For some reason this worked for me. But yeah I have had this similar situation happen, and changing the accounts email back and forth worked. May not work for you too but yeah. Other than that I had no idea what to do. I was inputting it all right...

Also make sure all the addresses and names inputted is in all CAPS. That helps too... but not always.

Like I said, these are simple and not always reliable ways of solving this, but it's helped me.
