    +1 - plugging in my iPhone starts iPhoto, which is maybe because that's where I last added stuff to my iPhine from?

    You can stop it doing this by going to Apps and then Image Capture, open prefs and select No Application under "When camera is connected, open:"

    I have the same problem. It worked properly for about a week after I got the phone, then it stopped automatically launching iTunes. iPhoto still launches automatically, though.

    I had this problem as well, but got it to work this morning. I dunno if it makes a difference but I'm using a MBP.

    I connected the phone, opened iTunes manually, went to the summary page for the phone, unchecked "Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected", clicked "Apply" and then closed iTunes completely. I did NOT disconnect the phone. I reopened iTunes manually, went to the summary page for the phone, checked "Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected" and clicked "Apply". It then said it had to start the iTunes Helper Program for this since it wasn't currently running. I said OK.

    It now opens iTunes automatically when the iPhone is connected.

    Works Great

    Same thing happened to me on my 3GS. Steps worked like a charm.

    Thanks.
