I am located in a country that is not supported by the App Store.
Can anybody help me on how I can create a "no payment method" account, so I can use free apps? Thanks a lot in advance.

Just try it - I've forgotten how I did it but it was very easy. I needed a portugese account and a US account at various times and just set up the accounts.
BTW using your email address as your username is likely to result in a lot of spam....He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I'm not sure where are you from but I'm currently have three itune accounts (US, Canada & Japan). As living in Canada, setting up Canadian iTune is not a problem with a regular credit card. For the Japanese one, I used the Japanese iTune Card that brought from an online store. As for the US iTune account, I have been using those pre-paid MasterCard or Visa Card with a bogus address and never have any problem. Since you don't need a positive balance to keep your account active, you can just use the pre-paid card somewhere else once the iTune account is set-up.
I hope you have access to one of those pre-paid credit cards in your country.

Just to make it clear - I have no credit card or other method of payment on my US or Portuguese account! You do not need a payment method.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
