There is loads of links there as to how to set up an iTunes account without a credit card. All you have to do is select New Zealand (or you're local store) before you start.

Buying stuff yes, but I was going to try it out and give it a fair shake.

Open itunes and switch to New Zealand *do this after logging out of your current itunes account*. Search RR3 and click on free to download, so when it ask you to log in, click create account. As you follow the steps a *None* should appear next to the payment types.

Finally a kind response. I did all the steps with all the help files out there and also a lot of nice people took out the time to pm me, so thanks!

But I really think that Apple changed this none thing recently, maybe in the new itunes store in ios 6. Cause there is no none function on the ipad.

Could be on the itunes pc version, maybe. If anyone is kind enough to check, it would be great. Or if someone has done this recently since ios 6.1, let me know. I don't have a personal laptop, so I prefer to do it on only on my ipad if possible.

Anyway, if anyone knows, let me know. I think you used to be able to select none in the old days, that is what is causing all this confusion. Maybe it might be easiest just to somehow buy a NZ gc hehe, I need a vacation.

The guides only relate to the pc/mac version of iTunes.
You require a payment option on your device.
From pc/mac (all the articles in the google search that I linked) you require no payment option, that only comes up on non iDevice version. That is pretty clear in the articles (most recent ones anyway).
It literally takes about three minutes. If you read the actual info. It is far from difficult.
Any computer and email address separate from your actual iTunes log in.
