    Default Advice needed please
    A friend of mine has had his iPhone 4 since the release date.
    That day was also the first and last time he connected it to a computer.

    He now wants to update the software, but he doesn't own a computer.

    Can I plug his phone into my computer and do the updates without syncing all his tat onto my computer, and also without putting all my media onto his phone?

    Many thanks for any help.

    Ben

    Updating on your computer will remove your friends data. iTunes removes all media, updates, and the re-syncs the media. You need to sync all of his stuff to your computer and then update.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
