I am registering to Amazon S3, but it says that a credit card is required upon registration. My purpose is to create a dummy account where I can test the amazon S3 for development.

Is there anyway to register without using a credit card? Or Is there any place where I can test for development?

You need a credit card, but as long as you don't use it "too much" you should be within the Free usage tier. You get 5GB, of storage, 2,000 PUT requests, 20,000 GET requests.

    Thanks, okay so amazon really needs a valid credit card information. I am actually thinking of ways to get through that. I checked on FakeS3 but I am not sure if thats they other way to go. Anyway, thanks.
