How to Activate an iPhone?

iPhone ActivationThe iPhone is a smartphone developed by Apple Inc. with functions of iPod, digital camera, internet, text messages (SMS), visual voicemail and Wi-Fi spot. The interaction with the user is done through a touch-sensitive screen. Apple reported more than two hundred patents related to technology that created the iPhone. Similar to previous iPods, the iPhone can organize your media library by songs, artists, albums, videos, playlists, genres, composers, podcasts, audiobooks, and compilations.

In order to being using your iPhone, you have to activate it using iTunes(the latest version - iTunes 9). This is a step-by-step guide to everything you need to know about iPhone activation to get you started using it right away!

Downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes (or the newest version), which is required for activation. Once that’s done, unpack the iPhone, set it on the included dock, and connect the dock to the computer. This will prompt iTunes to show you the first installation screen.

NOTE: This how-to applies only to the first-generation iPhone. The iPhone 3G uses a different activation process. The iPhone 3GS uses basically the same process as the 3G.
