    Hi all

    I have had a 3G S for a while (syncing with and set up on my MacBook Pro 17") and my old, first generation, iPhone has been largely inactive since I upgraded. I now plan to use it as a remote in my new 'grand plan' MacBook Pro (15" with a broken screen) powered home theatre setup.

    My question is, can I plug it in and sync it with the 15" MBP? Can a de-activated iPhone (with Airport mode & Wi-Fi turned on) be used as a fully functioning iPod Touch, upgrading the firmware and installing apps as you would a normal iPod Touch?

    Thanks in advance for advice / help!

    /Doug

    Brilliant...

    Thanks for the short, sweet, 'just what I wanted to hear' answer :)
