    When I try to make an account I confirm my “country or region”, hit next, add my birthday and stuff, hit next, and then it just goes back to “country or region” and I cannot progress, theres no error messages or anything. What do I do?

    After I type in the Apple ID and click sign up. It tells me to put in my country or region, I put that in and then I put in my birthday. After I click next, it tells me to put my country or region in again, and then my birthday. It keeps going in a loop. How do you fix this?

    I have done everything to sign up then it tells meto go to my email I do that but everytime I try to get mail it says that the username or password for is incorrect and i have given up hope here just play free games.

    • How is an email address? It’s not. That doesn’t even fit the fake email address you filled out.

      “Just play free games” is completely unrelated.

      Game Center works with numerous paid and free games on App Store.

    I was wondering if anyone can help me regarding the Game Center App.

    When I open it to the Welcome Screen, I have the option to sign in with my Apple ID or create a new account. Since I have an Apple ID, I select “Sign In”. I’m brought to the “Create Profile” screen and I receive a “pop up” that says:

    “The Apple ID has not yet been used in Game Center. Tap Continue to set up your account”
    (which I then proceed to do).

    It then asks me to review my Apple ID info: first location, then I hit “Next”, then my DOB shows up and I hit “Next” again. That’s where the problem occurs. It returns me in an endless loop to the location screen again and displays the “pop up” again
    “The Apple ID has not yet been used in Game Center. Tap Continue to set up your account”

    can someone help?
