    Nope. One of the biggest features Apple added to iOS5 was "PC Free." This means you never have to connect it to a computer if you don't want to. Your full set up can be done on the phone itself.

    i have no idea. I have a super basic plan with only a few minutes and a few texts. There's enough rollover minutes (thousands and thousands) where I don't worry about phone calls, but texting I'm not sure. That is why my bill is $32 a month.

    You are disqualified from speaking, your in-laws pay for your plan!

    If you want to sync your music and movies, then yes. I was speaking to the initial phone set up, which used to require iTunes even if you didn't plan on syncing any media.

    They do offer iTunes Match which gives you access to all your music in the cloud, but I have no desire to pay for that.

    it used to be a little spotty, and on some days it can still be, but I use it all the time now.

    I think you mentioned having a burg from Monegard-Mugneret a while ago that was awesome. They have an '04 premier cru for like $55 that would be awesome.

    I am sure, great producer. I haven't had a burgundy with that much age on it actually.

    I'm so glad I still have some grandfathered old texting plan.

    The price on unlimited messaging is absurd. $20? wtf?

    I get a few hundred texts for $5 a month (and I have google voice so a lot of my messages are just plain data).

    That was the case with CDMA 3G on Verizon. Not sure what their coverage is like with LTE, but I would wager all three carriers went out of their way to get NYC right in that regard.
