Hi. What kind of card besides a credit card can I use to buy packages from cydia? I am hoping for some kind of prepayed card I can buy at the store. I do not own any credit cards. Thank you.
Hi Jessica. You don't actually pay directly with your credit or debit card on Cydia. You pay through your PayPal account. I think you can pay through Amazon payments either, but I can't double-check that for you because I'm not jailbroken anymore. Hope that helps.
I do not have a pay pal account either. Is there some kind of pre-paied card I can buy with cash at a store and then enter a number from the card into Cydia to activate the card and start buying stuff? Kind of like an iTunes card for Cydia. I am trying to find a card to buy so I am ready for the iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 7 jailbreak to come out. Or is there maybe a Cydia tweak that will let me use iTunes cards to buy packages on Cydia?
Hello Jessica, Dave is right Jessica. Your only methods of payment unfortunitly are a paypal account that you set up using your bank debit card or a credit card that you have stored with pay-pal or amazon. No other methods are accepted at this time and I do not see this changing. Dave; what happened? Why are you not jailbroken anymore?-Andrew-
Hey Andrew. I actually decided to upgrade to iOS7. I miss a few little things but overall I'm actually quite happy with iOS7. I'm sure I will jailbreak again though, but like you say we'll probably be waiting til 7.1 for that, so some time around the new year I'd guess.
That's a long depressing story I do not wish to tell again. Go read my post to this site called i lost my jailbreak and am trying to get it back and you will find out why.
