It always goes directly to the Apple store then requires me to setup an account with my credit card. The phone is for my son and I dont want to do that. Is there anyone that knows why this is happening and/or what I can do? There is no problem with accessing the internet or making calls or texts.
You can click non credit card or get a $10 gift card to bypass the need or worry he can charge things you dont want him to. You still need to have an apple Id. If you dont share the passcode you can do the downloading on the computer and then can have it go to his phone.
