    open the app called "image capture"

    you can set the pref not to do it in that app.

    I had to go under Preferences for Image Capture...

    There wasn't an option under the iPhone preferences that would disable it. So I had to go under Preferences for Image Capture and change the general "When a camera is connected open" option to "no application." This did the trick for stopping iPhoto from launching every time I docked (but now it won't launch when I dock my camera obviously).

    The other way to do it is not to have anything in your Photo Roll on the iPhone. :)

    Yeah I found this to be a happy medium. It would be nice though if from within iphoto or itunes there would be an option to not open iphoto when the iPhone is attached.
