  • After buying a number of books using my password iTunes
    says it is not valid. Why?
    Apple keep changing the password rules and now I am so confused I keep trying my old password and the new one. None of which seems to be acceptable. As I have bought a considerable number of books from you I find that this is not good service.
    I am a 76 year old reader and y eyesight is poor I can only read e books.
    lg.goldenbeach@gmail.com. Password I have been using for the last year at least, is Mindiefour43 ot was changed by apple and now Mindie44. Very very confused and angry lady
    As for the security code I have no hope of deciphering it

  • I paid for a season pass for a tv show. Halfway through the season, I stopped getting the email alert letting me know I have a new episode to download.

    Going to iTunes I noticed that while it shows I have purchased the season pass, that individual episode that I didn't get alerted to has a 1.99 price tag to it.

    I emailed iTunes support with my username, email, and explained the problem,

    My email back from them? While prompt and fast, was idiotic--the rep, asked me for proof that I purchased it, web order number, to put it short

    I replied with screenshots of my email confirmation, which didn't have web order, as well as showing that the season pass for 34.99 was erased out as purchased but in the individual screen it was asking me for 1.99

    First, I shouldn't have to even do that, as she has my account info, and it was ONLY after that email did she say she "reviewed" my account, then proceed to tell me I should be able to download the episode since it is indeed, purchased via season pass, and had the audacity to correct me in the naming of the episode, as if that's the most important thing

    Still didn't acknowledge that it says 1.99 to download and didn't fix the problem outside copy and pasting instructions found on the website

    Worst experience ever, I throw so much money at this company and I never mind because I believe there's a price to convenience but if this continues I'm going to find alternative even if it means waiting for the season to complete being out and just buying it via DVD, or getting cable

  • 50% of the time, when I email itunes support, I get back a form email and it has nothing to do with my issue. its as if the customer service rep didn't even read my support submission or doesn't speak english. i am very very tired of itunes support and am considering moving away from Apple for my media business because of the terrible support I have received. one instance, the itunes support rep reset my entire purchase library when I explicitly asked him not to. it took me almost 3 weeks to download the 100's of gigabytes of media all over again and there was no way to cancel this download. its my experience that itunes store support is some of the worst in the entire world.

  • After wasting significant time trying to email an iTunes gift card for my niece (I tried 4 times and got a "contact customer service message at the end of the transaction" each time), I just wasted an the better part of an hour with a rep who confirmed that my account and payment details were correct, Then he put me on hold for 40 minutes, after which I got disconnected by them! Never EVER again will I use Here I come, Amazon.

  • The support is awful - lousy - less than satisfactory!

    I am using iTunes on my phone; I just purchased a new pc and entered my username and/or password incorrectly - I try to enter my birthdate to verify that it's me, the system tells me I have the wrong date. DUH! They say they will send an email to me so that I can change my password. NOT! No email. No customer support. No person to talk to. LOUSY customer service.

  • This is so fraudulent. On playing campus life, a bundle is 9.99, but when you enter a $10 iTunes gift card number, it says you don't have sufficient funds. I assumed it was because taxes, so bought the 4.99 bundles and less that of course are less bang for the buck. After being told I had a .90 cent balance I assumed once entering the 10.00 gift card again that 90 cents should more than cover tax. It told me insufficient funds again, when I went to check the balance it was only 10.00 not the 10.90 which is supposed to be there. It just loses any of your remaining previous funds so you have to keep buying the less bang for you buck packages. Somebody should really look into this. How many millions have they stolen from people doing this scam!! They need a damn class action lawsuit their way!

  • I am trying to cancel my itunes account and just got another charge on my account and no one is using it. The itunes support is giving me a hard time trying to get it cancelled. I have talked to supervisor after supervisor .. giving me the run around. I would like to start a class action law suit against Apple and its products ITUNES for fraudulently taking peoples money for no reason. I have read many complaints from others on the website having the same problem. Billion dollar company stealing peoples money.

  • I spent the better part of my morning trying to get itunes to fix the double charge I received on my credit card. I was sent to two websites for support and neither were active. The third site gave me the opportunity to type in my problem. Then I get a message that they'll be back to me in 48 hours. The amount of money is minor, but if I don't get a resolution I'll see this charge again next month. This is way too difficult.

  • Firstly, any business that manages YOUR funds or accounts needs to have a direct consumer telephone number - it should be law! iTunes does not, you can not reach them as no number exists. The web forms are a joke.

    Sept 7th, 2013 - case in point. Enter an iTunes gift card code worth $10 - it promptly clears my existing balance so all I have is the $10. This is theft. Imagine this happening millions of times - what profit!

    called apple support - who puts you on hold so THEY can explain to itunes (you never get to talk to anyone directly). 45 minutes later, I hang up - itunes says the balance was zero - NOT. I looked up my balance before entering the card code. This is the most blatantly fraudulent system I have ever experienced - it all comes down to - me: Did too have a balance!, iTunes: Did not!

  • Itunes is unreal! I cant believe they could do what they have to anyone....PEOPLE,they have completely taken over my ipad. Removed ALL our games, and icloud in settings on ipad,messages,facebook.... I can find no reason.tried to re-install apps,but keep getting pop-up to put in billing info. Just wiped out things on ipad,and even screwed with my email.....if i owe them something,i can find nothing out about it.no emails of purchases...complete rip off

  • I wanted to buy an app in iTunes store a few days back. Tried several times, the store say my card is not being accepted, but then i check my account iTunes take some amount from my card. this happened all the three times I tried. I emailed this to customer service section of iTunes/Apple, no response so far. iTunes was once really great, but let me tell: now it totally sucks.

  • Apples customer service is non-existent. They do not put you directly in contact with a person (as a company this SIZE with the amount of impact their issues have on your daily life SHOULD provide). Their 'customer service' site is a bunch of ludicrous ways to try to get you to resolve your own issue and in order to talk to someone you have to SCHEDULE a call for up to 24 hours later (the earliest I could get was 8.5 hours from now). This is unacceptable.

  • I have redeemed an ITunes card and I've been able to spend some money but now when I try to buy something it doesn't go towards the gift card but it goes through the credit card on my apple account. I'm not sure what to do because it still says that there is money on the redeemed gift card but it isn't going through. Please email me. Thank you.

  • I think it's terrible that this cite cheats out it's users.
    I can't count all of the times I've purchased something,
    was charged for it, and never got to see it.
    I am very disappointed at the service ITunes provides,
    and I deserve a refund for the movies I was charged for, but ITunes never let me see.

  • I found 4 charges on my credit card from iTunes. I went on the Apple website to look up these charges to find out exactly what was purchased. Turns out there are no charges in my purchase history. But why do I have charges on my credit card? So I decide to call their 866 number. Which was answered by an automated recording to go to the website. Their website is useless! I can't even log off my account! Can't find the log off icon. I tried submitting a comment and I can't even click on the submit icon. I would think, one of the most successful internet, computer based companies would have their sh**t together. At least design a website that is that is user friendly. This is so frustrating!

  • I have a favourite game i play on my aple devices. i purchase gift cards when on sale to redeem to my itunes account so i can make in-app purchases on my favourite game. but everytime i spend over $100 in the app i get the error message "contact itunes support to complete this transaction" usually they resolve it over the phone within 1 hour. There is no point emailing them because they never reply to me or they take 3 days to reply at best. my most recent occassion that this happened they couldnt resolve it within 1hour and they said they need to escalate it to a higher level; all because I spend an apparent high quantity money on the itunes store. Now i need to wait 2 days to resolve the problem with my account and i have $150 of itunes credit waiting to upload and $40 in my account that i cant use because "i recently spent more than usual" quote, their words. Apple may as well make the store FREE for everything including In-App if you dont want us spending too much money!!!

  • FACTS:
    *I have an Itunes acct associated with my debit card and all settings are confirmed.
    *My adult daughter has an Itunes acct associated with her debit card and all settings are confirmed.
    *I have a credit card that has never been associated with an Itunes account but was used to make purchases in the Apple Store.
    ISSUES:
    My Itune purchases and daughter's purchases are confirmed by email indicating they are being charged to their respective debit cards. Instead, all charges show up on the UNASSOCIATED CREDIT CARD.

    ACTIONS TAKEN:
    Several calls to the Geniuses at Cust Service who say they will take care of the problem. After 4 months nothing is different. In order to stop the insanity, I had to cancel the UNASSOCIATED CREDIT CARD.

    THE GENIUS'S SOLUTION:
    The Genius in Fraud Department then cancels both accounts because they can't find their problem. And after listening to my tirade (of course I gave it to him - they deserve it); he hangs up on me

    MY SOLOUTION:
    Done with Apple - going to Samsung. Was on the brink of making an Ipad purchase - decision was made for me - going to SAMSUNG - too bad for the Geniuses at Apple - you lose. YOU DIDN'T HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM!!!

  • I order a Zoosk threw iTunes.. The site said I had a 3 day window 2 cancel and receive my refund.. I canceled 2day March 4 th and ordered on March 2nd.. My name is Lisa Cote.. I paid for 1 mth of which was 29.99 but I was actually charged 36 dollars and some change.. Seeing I can't SPEAK with a person I would expect a prompt response or I will get rid of iTunes all together this is just rediculous..

  • In the past i have cancelled my credit card access by itunes as the charge to card without authorisation for childrens games that are downloaded supposedly free.

    For example order ID is for The Sims FreePlay, Bucket of life Points and i was consequently charged Rph59,000 direct to my credit card!

    Itune must seek authorisation.

    It is very difficult if not impossible to complain>

  • I was trying to get help for playback on purchases and Digital copies on my ITunes for Windows. I do not own nay Apple products therefore do not have a Serial#. Because of this I cannot proceed with my inquiries. I guess if you are not spending a small fortune on their overpriced hardware they don't want to be bothered with you. As it is I now have an unplayable library of products excluaive ti ITunes

  • This number is good. Pressing 4 zeros worked as described. The agent was nice and efficient. Took care of my issue right away. Demetrius recapped my issues and provided me with options on how to possibly avoid issues going forward. He also followed up with an email.

    It took the longest to find a number to contact iTunes. Everything else was smooth sailing.

  • I was out of town all weekend and my daughter was on her iPod at her Grandmothers house she was playing free games and then in the free games she was purchasing in app games at a total up to $800. She had no idea when she was in there and clicking things it was actually buying stuff for her littlest pet shop houses. When I got the emails I was in a panic I couldn't sleep I didn't know what to do. I was googling all night and found this website that told me to call this number. Called this number Sunday morning as soon as I got home and they were so very helpful And refunded me all my money back. And then she told me How to put restrictions on her iPod so she can't do this again. I spoke to a girl named Jennifer and she was so very kind and helpful and help me out.

  • iTunes was great. my son has a galaxy s4 and daughter apple. They both got nailed on these app charges. Apple was fantastic and reversed the charges. GooglePlay is a bunch of criminals and they have alot to learn from Apple. We all learned a valuable lesson when the credit card came in. Its a future billion dollar lawsuit against some companies. Thank you Apple for understanding and not looking at our children as a money tree or cash register.

  • Just used this number and 0000 to talk to AMY at iTunes who is a wonder. My small child racked up $817.25 in purchases over the weekend while I was out and Amy got them reversed. What a relief.

    Then she walked me through several different levels of security some of which were new to me and some I had tried without success - to make absolutely sure it can't happen again.

    She told me that when I removed my credit card info after setting up a couple of legitimate apps for my daughter, it didn't go through because there was a charge pending -- important to know this: if you have a legitimate charge pending and you try to take out the credit card to secure the account from a child's purchases, IT WONT'T WORK, but you won't get a warning. It will just quietly re-insert your cc info.

    Thank you, Amy and thank you Contact Help - I spent a bunch of time on iTunes and on Apple's support pages before I stumbled across this.

  • Way back in the day Itunes didn't require an email address to log in. The problem is that now some songs won't play, even after repurchasing them under my current account. Called and spoke to Becky - wait wasn't long, she was personable and efficient, problem sorted out and completely resolved in under fifteen minutes, and she linked me on how to file for reimbursement for repurchasing songs as that shouldn't have been necessary. I am impressed and so grateful! Thanks, Becky!

  • I have had all sorts of download problems with renting movies on iTunes and I have to say that the customer support has been outstanding. I honestly feel that they recognize my loyalty to the brand and I have been happily suprised with the prompt refunds that I have received when I have had errors both beyond my control and those they resulted from my misunderstanding the terms and conditions in the small print. A well worded email to the customer support service as opposed to a rant on a blog has resulted in solutions to problems that many deem impossible to resolve. Keep up the good work iTunes!

  • So, so very happy with help received from iTunes customer service rep! My 10 year old son made over $700 in In - app purchases while with a babysitter. When I received receipts via email I nearly lost my mind! My poor son cried for an hour, not realizing he was even spending "real" money. I was certain the purchases were done & a total loss for me. Not so!! Was able to reach a real live rep @ this number Monday morning who quickly & courteously handled the problem. Was told the "on hold" time could be 1/2 hour but was about 5 min. I couldn't be happier! Yea, iTunes!!!

One hour wait? Or pay $1300.00? Do the math......

  • I had a number of fraudulent iTunes purchases on my credit card statement, and I wanted to talk to a person. I tried calling the number on my statement, but all I got was a recording that told me to email my concerns about iTunes. I then tried this number and pressed 0 four times like it said. It put me through to some kind of support line. After I gave them my iPhone serial number, they put me through to a live person who was able to direct me to the right department. A bit of a headache, but they resolved the issue quickly once I was in the right hands. Also, I called outside the operating hours listed, and I still got through.

  • If you call to dispute a charge they are extremely helpful and won't give you any grief, at least that was my experience. I called because I got a mysterious charge and waited on hold for about ten minutes until a very nice girl was able to take my information and transfer me to their security department who were able to tell me that the charge was a yearly subscription I'd forgot about. They even refunded the money when I explained I didn't know it would charge without asking. Overall great experience!

  • Very similar to the commenters below. I noticed unauthorized charges on my bank statement and called the above number. The initial rep told me I have to do it via email but I insisted that I heard that the apple policy changed and he transferred me to Itunes security. They took the details down, put me on hold while they conferred with Itunes and then came back to tell me the charges will be reversed.

    Josh 6/12/12 12:20PM
  • 5/31/12 I found charges to my debit card from Itunes that I did not make. My first attempt to call Itunes support ended in failure as the rep told me there was no phone support for Itunes. I went back online looking for help and could not find anything. I tried the number listed here again and when I got through I asked for Itunes Security. I was promptly connected. The rep I spoke with told me that this is a rather new department and some Apple reps are not aware that these issues are now able to be handled by phone. My issue was resovled promptly. If you are told that it has to be done by email press the issue (politely) :>)
