Apple Sued Over iPhone Non-Replaceable Batteries
So, if you have an iPhone and want to use it, for anything, you must have an iTunes store account and a computer that can work it? And the latest vs. of iTunes?
Yes, except for the store account I believe; you can sub with a credit card, I don't think you have to create a store account if you have the card. You do certainly need 7.3 or later of iTunes, which was the first release of iTunes to have an iPhone tab. But I believe there's a 7.3 CD in the box with the phone, and if you have a Mac or a Windoze box with iTunes on it then you'll be getting automatic updates to 7.3 anyway.
