    A friend in another state is giving me her iPhone. Does the person need to deauthorize it from her iTunes? Also when I get it can I reformat it before I go to AT&T to activate it?

    She shouldn't have to deauthorize it but I would just reformat and start over. All you have to do is click restore in iTunes when you get it.

    So I take it out hook it to my computer and I should be able to restore it? Then I take it to store and get it activated. Then when that is done I can hook it to my mobile me and grab everything. Bring it home and sync to iTunes to get my music and I am good to go from there. Do I have this right?
