    Uh, what?
    Can you tell us which apps these were?

    iPads don't normally sneak online to buy apps.
    also: 3G or WiFi?

    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.

    Oh, so your friend is using a Cydia app to download free AppStore apps, and iTunes keeps making him pay for their products after he's taken them for free without their permission?

    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.

    Where did you get that idea, he said nothing about stealing apps or getting them free another way, the only thing he talked about was iTunes and you don't have to enter a password to download apps for "free" from other apps. I agree with your opinion about stealing apps but you need to calm down and stop accusing people for something you don't know they did.

    Oh. He must have acquired AppStore apps through Cydia through legitimate means?

    False.

    Cydia doesn't, or anything you get with Cydia that can download them for free doesn't require a password, for anything. It's clear he's talking about purchasing from iTunes or the AppStore, I still don't know what he was talking about Cydia in the first post for though. I'm not gonna argue, don't care about it honestly, there are just so many people that flame for the most ridiculous things on this forum, you included, I thought I'd say something.

    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.)

    C'mon, bro.

    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.

    The only logical conclusion.
