    I'm curious if anyone has heard if the set up of the iPhone is like my old iPod Mini where I should use my crippled Windows machine at work to set it up first because the Mac is smart enough to recognize it anyway?

    Because there might be some times when I need to plug it into my Windows machine. I don't want to set it up on my Mac only to later plug into Windows to see the question 'you will need to reformat in order to use this on Windows'.

    Is this something they have changed with later generation iPod products?

    Unlike the ipod, the iphone cannot be used as a disk. So I'm thinking, no you don't reformat it. But if you change your 'home computer' I bet it will replace the contents of one with the other.

    With the ipod when you connect it to a non-master computer it asks if you want to switch. I am sure the iPhone will be similar.
