Im confused here. If I buy a song on my iPhone through the iTunes icon...does it get charged to my AT&T bill, or through my normal billing methods of iTunes?

Say you have an iTunes account setup on your computer. If your iPhone uses the same Wi-Fi as that computer, then the purchase will be charged to your iTunes account.

However, if you are using Wi-Fi that does not have an iTunes account set up on it, such as Starbucks, then the purchase will be charged to your bill.

BTW: I was at friends house the other night. He has Wi-Fi with his iTunes account on it. I downloaded a couple of songs courtesy of his account... :)

Awesome.

And the 80 free songs came from that Facebook/Ticket Master thing. Already used 50 of them...80 left!

Well, his Wi-Fi is unlocked, and if your iPhone is using Wi-Fi that has iTunes on it, it automatically connects to that account.

Thief!

Seriously, I would be pissed if my "friend" was using my account to get their music; its not like the songs are free and personally, if someone can afford to spend $600/400 on an iPhone or Touch, then they need to be able to pay for their own songs.

how does this happen? whenever i use the iTunes store on my iPhone, it's on my account - i am prompted for my password with every purchase. are you using your friend's account name and password?
Got me wondering the same thing now. Each time I make a purchase I must enter my password.

I think, but not 100% sure, that it uses the Apple iTunes account that the iPhone was synced to. I had some credit from my $100 rebate that I bought iTunes gift cards. When I was in a nother city at my brothers I hooked into his WiFi and downloaded songs. It used my iTunes account and even knew that I had credit that it applies my purchases to.
