    itunes on my phone (iphone 4 5.1) keeps asking for my password every time I open an app. I have tried all the normal fixes but nothing helps.

    I should note, that I can hit cancel and the app works fine.


    Any ideas or suggestions?

    What are the "normal fixes" you mentioned? How long has this been going on? Are you using anything that can restrict usage like the Apple Configuration? The reason I ask is because you mentioned that iTunes is asking for your password every time you "open an app".

    Oh dang! You have indeed done everything. You might want to check your payment information and make sure you don't have an expired credit/debit card on file. I had something similar and it turned out that my credit card had expired. Once I updated it, all was well again.

    I actually just changed my billing method recently. Everything works fine and is not expired. I will try adding it again.

    I don't get why would iTunes.app ask your password only when you open another app... Are your apps related to iTunes.app in any way? Does this happen when you're in your homescreen? Do you have some kind of subscription going on where things download in the background? Also are you jailbroken?

    Check your payment is done or your card is not expired...
