I searched for this before posting and couldn't see it posted anywhere else. Sorry if its a repeat.
If like me, you use an ipod but dont want to give your credit card details to Apple just so you can get free stuff, heres a workaround I found to create an account without it asking for them.
It also lets you create an account for another country (e.g. US) to get their free stuff as well.
Enough waffle, I've linked to the web page where I originally found it. If I'm not allowed to link to another site, please let me know!
