Default I-Phone Question

I just got a 3G I-Phone and I am wanting to install some free apps, mainly facebook. It looks like the apps are all coming thru I-tunes which I have not used in ages and it is wanting me to update my credit card info even though the app is free. First I am wondering why they need my credit card info if the app is free, secondly I am wondering if it is secure entering that info on my i-phone in order to download the app ??????????

i have the Iphone 4, and you do have to go through itunes to download apps, regardles if they are free, you have to have a credit card on file, incase you download apps that cost money. I have had it for a while and your credit card information is secure.

I've had no trouble with required card data. It's handy too, there's an app where when you hear a song on the radio you can allow it to listen, identify, and then you can purchase the song through iTunes.

Most apps are pretty cheap, some free.

I wouldn't worry about the credit card issues with iTunes.

If you don't want to use your cc info you can buy one of the cheap itunes cards and it will work

i've had an iPhone since they first came out, my CC info hasn't been compromised (by iTunes), so don't worry about it. it's only there for "incidentals" haha like if you buy an app or music that costs money.
