Itunes wont let me drag songs onto my iPhone

Just got my new iPhone..

I can't drop and drag songs from my music library onto my iPhone for some reason.. Is there a way for iTunes to re-authorize my iPhone to be the default phone??

I think this problem is happening because my friend used my computer last month with his iPhone, and transferred some music from my library. Could that be the case and if so what are my options?

No. You can't do that. You must sync.

I can drag my music to the phone just like my iPods. Just check the "Manually manage music and videos" box under the "Summary" tab for your phone in iTunes first.

Nope. I drag my music into my iPhone "a la iPod." All you have to do is select the "manually manage music and video" box on the Summary Tab in iTunes. It ain't rocket surgery.
