everything i've read recently says you need to set it up on the computer that will be primary for music, movies, contacts, etc
that totally makes sense...however my 'puter is in the shop under a warranty repair :'( and i am getting in line for an iPhone tomorrow. i keep calling and bugging the mac shop to see if it will be done tomorrow, but if it isn't...AHHHH:mad: i don't want to wait to activate. that would suck monkey biscuits. anyone KNOW whether there is a way to reset the "home" computer or whatever it will be called? what about people who buy a new computer in a few months and want to do this as well. i would hope Apple would have thought about this. anyone have a link to confirmed info?

glad to hear someone else thinks so, but the leaked training manual made me wonder. i don't want to make my life more difficult by using my work computer to activate.:(

I would think you could activate it on any computer that has iTunes. Obviously if you want music and crap on the iPhone, you'd have to get that from your computer, but I can't see why you just couldn't use any computer for initial setup.

I hope those fine people at EphPod have something brewing for iPhone... the thought of "having" to use iTunes kind of sucks for me. I don't mind registering the phone through iTunes.. but i'm so use to using Ephpod for setting up my playlists and whatnot.

even if they do allow it (which is very unlikely) i think you would miss out on all the extra features that future iTunes releases will have just for iPhone
