First off do you have an Apple ID? Yes or no?

Second, have you logged in using that Apple ID into the iTunes & App Stores section of the Settings in the device?

If yes to both, have you rebooted your device?

If yes to all and you still can't get to the app store after you get into Passbook, you should try to restore your device and try again.

Please be more specific or we can't help you.

Who are "they" and where are you supposed to enable PB--because I can't find anything to DISable it?

Ta Da!!! That did the trick. I had to restore default settings then reinstall from my most recent backup. While everything is getting re-installed (apps etc) I checked out PB and it no longer gives me the error.

Only for free apps I believe I read.

No it's for all apps.

It'll probably trickle in soon...I just saw that United Airlines was added where it wasn't in the list before.

Give it time--it's release day!

Hmm... I got the Target coupon working. Major flaw though, because the Passbook coupon won't show me coupon details, so if I'm shopping at Target, I'd be opening up the Target app to know what to buy (that's on sale), and then switching back and forth between apps when I pay!? (Just kidding, I'd just use the Target app alone since the Target app already has the barcode at the top of the coupon page, thus making Passbook REDUNDANT AND USELESS)!

Flame on!

What is fine?

First time around i kept getting "couldn't connect to the Apple Store" then, eventually, it would give me the entire store.

Someone posted a link on the Apple Discussions forum for passsource.com that allows you to create various cards. I did a couple for CVS and PetCo but discovered the Pass Book button for iTMS was gone. Then I began to get paranoid that "third parties" would steal my CVS Rewards so I did a restore and Im now able to add various cards but the only option seems to be to open them. Still not sure I really understand exactly how this is supposed to work but it doesn't look like the stack of cards shown in Apple's pictures.

How on earth do you get back to the Passbook section of the App Store after adding a coupon...?

ok, i'm getting interested in this passbook thing....

so now i'm confused. so I read that you need a passbook-enabled app, so I downloaded the walgreens app and set it up, but when I open the passbook app I still get the error. am i understanding something wrong? does the "app" need to be updated into passbook to work or something? apparently nothing works if the error is generated?

This actually worked for me:

1. Go to Settings-->General-->Date and Time-->Set Automatically-->Off.
2. Set the date one year ahead.
3. Try to update the apps again.
3a). If you get an error message, go back to the settings.
3b). Correct the date and time (set automatically)
3c). Go back and try to update the apps again.

I honestly expect this to be the next Ping.

I don't see anyone having a reason to use it ever for any reason until NFC and even then...

If anything, for me, I'll use it to corral all of my "saver/membership" cards. The coupons will come and it will probably become something like Groupon--sharing coupons with FB friends, etc.

I found a work around on the web. Go into your settings and manually change the date to one year from today. Then go back to passbook and open it. It will take you to the app store. Then you can restore your original date settings.

Did a full restore and was able to download a few apps, include a Fandango update this morning. Now whenever I boot PassBook I get the same screen and now I'm getting that same old message "Can't connect to the Apple Store." Maybe the server is busy? If that's the case, it makes absolutely no sense to open apps by connecting to the Apple Store especially when the store is too busy to handle requests.

I've always though that by the time I've found my SB app and pulled it up and the barcode appears I could have paid with my debit card or cash twice over. Hopefully this helps, lol.

Funny, but with the new iPhone I'm getting the can't connect message and nothing that I do with the date will fix it. I haven't tried restoring yet, but I'm about there.

I suspect either the store is busy or the potion that handles PassBook is down. I read somewhere on the Apple Discussion Forums that it wasn't scheduled to go live till today. Maybe they're running late?
