    According to :apple: spec page you'll need iTunes7.7...but as of this post the latest iTune is 7.6.2
    http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html

    [EDIT 1.5 hours after this first post]
    OK i'm a dumb noob. Didn't know that iTunes 7.7 is due maybe Tues.
    I should have titled this iPhone 3G requires itunes 7.7. When will it be out?
    I did search (several in fact) but nothing was evident in the first 5 pages that was in the title of the posts that the search returned.
    If you can provide a link to this discussion it would be much appreciated

    thanks!

    I guess July 11th didn't cross your mind, since that is the day the iPhone is released.

    LOL :D

    To the OP, why do we need iTunes 7.7 sooner than the 11th. Have you seen the screen shots nothing has really changed except when you are syncing your phone. Oh and some prefereces.

    It's most-likely due the 11th, though it really SHOULD be out before then. Otherwise it's a LOT to deal with/download in just one day -- especially if you're a new iPhone owner getting MobileMe. First there's the lines, and the activation process (though at least activating's ONE thing you can do ahead of time). Also, as many have said, a final version of 2.0 is probably not loaded on the phone yet, so that will have to be installed first. Then there's iTunes 7.7, and dealing with ALL the content for it, and loading it to your phone. Then there's MobileMe, and setting all of that up. Then downloading apps from the app store...

    It's going to be a LONG time until you can actually play/use the phone! :D

    i doubt iphone 3g will function without os 2.0

    anyway, as a new user they will be downloading itunes for the first time, so that is no different. and it only takes a few minutes for existing users

    ¡Hasta luego!

    Seriously though, if you checked the forums, some people are speculating it might come out next Tuesday. Other than that, what do you want us to say? Its already been stated that iTunes 7.7 will be required. Its nearly common knowledge by this point. Maybe you should search before posting?

    Seems like Rojo is the only one who got my drift...
    Activation for an existing customer requires deactivating the old phone, transfer of contacts, calendar etc is going to mean downtime.
    Add a new Itunes to the mix and ...well i like to get as much done up front as possible.

    Many are speculating it has OS 2.0, but some early form of it -- and that the final version will need to be downloaded when it's first connected.

    Well, what does that say about our posting system, then? We need banners at the tops of the forums, not Stickies, because no one reads those, BANNERS.

    Buying Tips: If you need it now, buy it now. If you can wait, do. It's already more powerful than you need.

    iMac/Mac Mini: *links to the big Mini death threads*

    MacBook: Shut up about the redesign. It will come when it comes.

    MacBook Pro: Shut up about the redesign. It will come when it comes.

    Mac Pro: No updates before Nehalem.

    And so forth.

    Ahhh ...did search...long list of hits for just itunes. And if it is common knowledge why not just say "We think it will be out Tues here's the link to the discussion." Generally that's what i do for noobs on the forums i frequent.
    But at least you pointed that out , thanks.

    read your post:
    it doesn't say anything about extra time taken to update software. it is a valid point, but your post just seems to be asking where is this software?

    Good point
    Other forums have stickies right the top: READ THIS FIRST
    and advanced search features.

    Lastly although blunt you at least point out that it was info out from day one.
    i did check a lot of the WWDC blogs in real time but somehow missed the items 7.7 mention.

    And myself and others gave you a response, what's the problem? I think you thought you noticed something we all didnt know about but it turns out all of us already knew what you posted. Its not a big deal, no need to get upset about it.
