    hi all,

    this is probably a simple question, but i wanted to make sure i'm not going to confront any problems when my iphone arrives at work tomorrow.

    is it ok to activate the iphone on a computer other than the one that ultimately will be it's "home computer" (where it gets its apps, music, pictures, etc.) from?

    i know i probably can wait until i get home to get it set up over the weekend, but i thought it might be nice to at least charge, activate, and use the phone for basic stuff before i had the chance to fully set it up using my home computer.

    has anyone else done this and had any problems/difficulties? i'm assuming it won't be an issue, but want to be sure rather than sorry and create a mess of problems for myself down the road...

    I would say this is okay, as they hook it up to iTunes for activation at BBY, AT&T or Apple when you buy it there.
