This happened to me before. It was fixed later in the day, and my world didn't end.

I cannot download apps already purchased, cannot access my account and can't even download free apps.


Why would it be any easier to download a free app than a paid one? They're coming from the same place.

The user probably tried download free apps to see if downloads from the App Store were working and is just specifying that they weren't about to spend money to give some free micro-reporting to us.
