How to change payment information in itunes when caught in an endless loop

I have been sufferig the latest couple of week by not being able to change my billing information in either iTunes or directly on my iPhone. I kept trying to change my old credit card info to a different card or setting the payment method to none, but every time I returned to my payment information nothing had changed. A message allways appeared in iTunes stating that "there were errors or omissions". I was unable to buy anything from iTunes or update apps on my Iphone.

The solution: I am currently an iphone developer and opened my web browser to developer.apple.com/iphone. I then resent my programmer status and contact information and accepted the latest agreement from apple. I suddenly was able to change my billing information to whatever I wanted.
