    WOW! I just bought 5 games:

    Rolando 2 - $10.00
    Edge - $5.00
    Doodle Jump - $1
    Topple 2 - $1
    Lady Gaga Revenge - $4

    It equaled up to $20 with taxes, $23ish.

    Anyways, I bought them on my iPod. I checked iTunes on my CP and it shows the purchases and did say I owed them. It showed the total, but it didn't show in RED. Connected to my account is a prepaid credit card I use (Vanilla Mastercard) and it only has $0.33 cents left. I checked the card account, and Apple didn't bill me. (I bought Rolando 2 yesterday, so it must have billed me already if it was going to). Looks like Apple isn't too tight with their App Store security. Just the other day I got 3.0 for free on Apple Servers by restoring. Surprise.

    I'll let you guys know if they (ever) bill me.

    They are going to bill you, it just takes a day, so when you need to update the apps, or if you want to buy new ones, even free ones, you can't until you pay off the money you owe them.

    Yeah i did the restore thing. I originally got it for free, not saying where, and then i fked up the system fonts while changing a theme and then it was on a white spinning wheel whenever i tried to boot it, so i restored and got 3.0 for free

    @Clusterfunk, he used a prepaid card, so i don't see how they are going to bill him. Unless they send him a bill in the mail, but that would just be a new low for apple, sending a $23 bill just for getting a few apps without being billed.

    @BigDaveyJ: Usually when I owe, they instantly don't allow me to update or download ANYTHING, but currently they are.

    Usually they bill me within a hour of downloading, but they haven't. If they do bill me, I'll eventually pay it off. But, until I buy another credit card, this will help prevent me from spending money (if they bill me), but the bad part is that I won't be able to get Pocket God updates

    It takes time before the bill comes through, many times it takes a few days to go through. But if your account is overdrawn, you cant dl or update anything, free or paid.

    Yup, agree with you guys on the billing procedure... Apple will only charge your credit card a few days after the purchase was made on iTunes...

    For my case, once I have made an iTunes purchase, my credit card statement shows that the transaction went through, at least three to four working days after the purchase...
