    Hi,

    I just got an iPhone 4 yesterday. I have a macbook at home but at work I use a PC. The outlet to plug into the wall is far away so i was wondering if, after already plugging my iPhone into my macbook at home, will it mess up the my iPhone if i plug it into the PC to charge through it's USB port?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Assuming you don't have iTunes on the PC at work you won't have any issues. It should charge just fine.

    If iTunes is installed then it will start and ask to sync every time you plug it in.

    Yes, you can just plug it in and it will charge fine. If iTunes starts up and wants to sync, turn off that feature under PREFERENCES in iTunes. Then it won't do it.

    Wrong. It might do it the first time, but as long as you turn that feature off, it won't. I do this all the time at work to keep it charged throughout the day.
