If I get my wife an iPhone, she really doesn't care to sync to a computer. Ever. She just wants "it to work". She's more interested in the phone functions and Google searches / maps. Perfect for her. She *might* also enter calendar stuff, but only on the phone itself. Now, the way I understand it, you have to have an iTunes account. And you have to connect via your computer, to get updates and music (instead of over the air), or even to activate the phone. Is this what others understand? If so, it seems to leave out lots of potential customers. Thanks!
