Go to the App Store and try to download ANY FREE app. You must have a network connection in order to access the App Store which is on the Internet. Tap on the app, then FREE, then INSTALL APP. A pop up message will appear asking you to either Use an Existing Apple ID or Create a New Apple ID. You want to CREATE a NEW APPLE ID. The New Account window will pop up and prompt you to complete the fields. You have to AGREE to the terms of service stuff before it will allow you to proceed. Complete ALL the fields and ALL the securing questions. When you complete the first page and tap NEXT….you will then see that you have the option not to associate a credit card with this new Apple ID. Just make sure NONE is selected. Continue completing the required fields. When you finish, it will indicate that a verification email is being sent to your email address. You do not have a working Apple ID until you open that email.
Find that email and click on VERIFY. You should be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password to activate your account.
Congrats!! You have created your personal Apple ID!!
Now, you can go back into Settings on your iPad.......tap on iTunes & App Stores.....and enter your new, personal Apple ID and Password if it is not already there!
