    New iPhone user - question
    Hi

    I've bought an iPhone this week and couldn't be happier with it. It really exceeded my expectations (i had real concerns about the call quality with ATT, but so far it's near perfect).

    I just have a slight issue, very minor. Everytime i download applications from the App Store, i need to enter both my email and user name. I used an iPod Touch for a year and it wasn't like that on it, it saved the address and i only needed to enter my password (which is fine).

    I would like it to save the email addy, is there a way? If it matters, my iPhone is a refurbished one (3G and updated to the latest version)

    Thanks!

    I believe thats a function of itunes not the phone. I know when i switched from 1st gen iphone to 3g that function followed.

    Hmmmm. Mine saves the e-mail address and I just have to enter the password. It seemed that it did that when I first sync'd it with my Mac.

    Agreed. That should work.

    I just wanted to add something.

    I sometimes charge my iPhone at work (on a mac mini). It has iTunes installed, but no account associated with it. It's not set to sync on this mac, but the account info will still disappear from iTunes/App Store on my iPhone

    It's not really an issue, as it will come back once I plug it in at home. I just wanted to share this info
