One of my friends has a jailbroken iPad and it's happened two times where iTunes has billed him for apps that he had of Cydia.. Anyone know about this ? How is this happening, and how can you prevent your iPad sneaking online to buy apps ?? Any Ideas...? HELP!!

I don't understand how iTunes could bill you for a Cydia app, iTunes doesn't sell Cydia apps.
Perhaps iSkynet finally went online...

Pirated apps? When you have these and sync with iTunes, it wants you to buy them. Maybe you need to check your setting on how apps are purchased... I dono

Is there anything in the settings that will make you ask for a password before purchasing NO MATTER WHAT ? I know I have to enter a password if I D/L something from the App store, but if I D/L a second item, i can't recall if it asks for the password again? It's weird cuz he even changed the itunes password and then it happened the 2nd time.

There's a fix for that.
Quit stealing. You will probably won't get any help on these forums, if it pertains to stealing copy written works that developers bust *** to create.
If you can't afford apps, you don't need an iPad, you need a real job. hopefully, he can't stop it, and Apple gets him for every app he's stolen.

This doesn't make any sense. Cydia sells tweaks and apps that aren't even available on the Apple App Store. Can you screenshot a copy the bill? (Blur out the confidential data.)

Apps from Cydia aren't in the AppStore. Herp. iTunes is charging
him. Derp. So, if iTunes is charging him for apps, the logical conclusion would be that he's getting apps from in*****ous, and that he isn't differentiating Cydia from said pirating app, a common confusion for those not well versed in jailbreakery.
As far as passwords go, he's trying to find a way to use a password to lockout iTunes, which isn't possible.
I think what's happening is he's getting certain apps with anti-piracy coding. Once the cracked app is installed and launched, iTunes charges.
The way around it is to buy apps legit, or get lucky and don't steal apps with anti-piracy measures.
Or, iTunes charged him for MyWi...

I interpreted it differently, doesn't matter anyway, I don't think he's even checking this thread cause he hasn't said anything since the first two posts.
