It took me at least two days to realise that I'd configured the phone and started using it without having to connect it to a PC. It's my understanding that a brand new iPhone must be connected to iTunes on a PC/Mac before you can do anything with it. Windows mobile isn't much better, needing to be connected to a PC to transfer contacts. Admittedly I'd prepared for Android by uploading all my contacts to Google before the phone arrived. Then it was just a simple case of entering my Google login and the contacts arrived on the phone along with my calendar.
