Set up your iPhone / iPod Touch

The first time you connect your device and launch iTunes, you will be prompted to "Set Up Your iPhone" by giving it a name (e.g. "JohnsIPhone") and deciding whether you want to check the box labeled "Automatically sync contacts, calendars, email accounts, and bookmarks." If you check this box, the iPhone will automatically sync every time you connect it to your computer. If you don't check the box, you will have to initiate the sync manually.
