Before you can use any of iPhone's features, you must activate iPhone
by signing up for a service plan with the iPhone service carrier in your
area and registering iPhone with the network. If you already have a
wireless account with the carrier, you may be able to upgrade your
account to work with iPhone, or keep using your old phone and add a new
line for iPhone. (Some accounts may not be upgradeable.) You may also be
able to transfer your current phone number to iPhone, or get a new one.
For more information about iPhone, including videos about how to activate and use it, go to:www.apple.com/iphoneInserting the iPhone SIM Card
In some regions, you may need to purchase the SIM card separately and
insert it into iPhone before activation. Read the documentation that
comes with the SIM card for instructions.
If your carrier gave you a PIN number to use with your SIM, you may need to enter the PIN before activating iPhone.Activate iPhone 1
Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes. 2
Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the dock and cable that
came with iPhone. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port,
you must connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.3
Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to activate iPhone and sync iPhone with
your contacts, calendars, email accounts, and bookmarks on your
computer. A single checkmark in "Set Up Your iPhone" syncs all these
items automatically. Or you can use iTunes to customize the information
you sync, and to sync your ringtones, music, photos, podcasts, and
videos to iPhone. See the following section.
You can disconnect
iPhone from your computer after "Waiting for activation" appears on the
iPhone screen. When activation is complete, "iPhone is activated"
appears on the iPhone screen. This means that iPhone is fully functional
and you can use all of its features.Important:
If you are migrating your current phone number to iPhone, activation may
take from several hours to a day and migration of your number may take
several days, depending on your location and previous carrier.Syncing iPhone with Your Computer
When you connect iPhone to your computer, iTunes syncs iPhone with the
information and media on your computer, according to how you've
configured the iPhone sync settings in iTunes.You can set iTunes to sync any or all of the following:
• Contacts - names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
• Calendars - appointments and events
• Email account settings
• Webpage bookmarks
• Music and audiobooks
music, audiobooks, podcasts, and video content are synced from your
iTunes library. If you don't already have content in iTunes, the iTunes
Store (available in some countries) makes it easy to purchase or
subscribe to content and download it to iTunes. You can also add music
to your iTunes library from your CDs. To learn about iTunes and the
iTunes Store, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
calendars, webpage bookmarks, and photos are synced from applications
on your computer, as described below. Contacts and calendars are synced
both ways between your computer and iPhone. New entries or changes you
make on iPhone are synced to your computer, and vice versa. Webpage
bookmarks are also synced both ways.
Email account settings are
only synced from your computer's email application to iPhone. This
allows you to customize your email accounts on iPhone without affecting
email account settings on your computer.
