I have a new apple phone which was bought from Canada under a contract to one of the Canadian Carriers. It is unlocked, however I want to download some free software such as Skype etc etc.

The thing is to do so one has to go through the registration with the Apple..... Now my question is if I register it and try to download the Skype will the telephone gets locked by Apple??

Anyone has been through the same experience here?
Your replies appreciated......and thanks in advance

Well, it appears that the email address is the user name.........hmmmm confusing.

Anyhow I can't download the application from the IPhone....t just won't allow me since I am outside US.

I managed to download it into the PC, however how can I get it to IPhone and get the Skype going?

Thanks again

Ok I managed to create and I received a link which was sent to my email, however when I created the account it asked me the email address and the password plus other infos.

Now if I want to get the skype I suppose I get it through my IPhone. Am I correct?.... If so to access my account I have to put in Username and the password.....The thing is on creating the account I put in the password, but where has the username has come from??!!

Am I doing something wrong?

make sure internet is connected.

1)open itunes and click on itunes store

2)on the right top search field type the name of any free app example fring (better than skype) and press enter to search.

3)click on get app. a window will appear asking you to create an account. click on create an account.

4)continue and fill in the right detals click continue

5)paymet method .this is the moste important part. just tick on none and fill in the address info and click continue.

6)an email will be sentto ur mailbox,,,just open that and activate ur account....

hyrcania ..there is a way to create a free account. it has to be don with itunes that is installed in ur computer... let me just recall wat i did and give u a quick tutorial.....

Many thanks for your kind reply 220v and others

The problem is that with my QTel sim card in the phone when I press iTune I get the message "Not supported in this country"....Therefore I am not able to create an account even a free one.

The other way when I go to download something it asks for an account to be created......... I am abit hesitant to create an account since I am not sure what will happen to the phone ie. Whether Apple detects the phone with another sim in it and knows it is unlocked and therefore locks it again??...I really don't know...

Has anyone been through this procedure I wonder?

Unfortunately I am new to Apple and the phone belongs to the wife.........

I got one from Norway and it was officially/legally unlocked by the carrier in Norway. I have a Apple Account and use it frequently. I have Skype, Facebook and loads of different apps in it and they work perfectly.

Good Luck
