    I keep reading contradictory information re: USB .0 and USB 3.0 with this phone.
    I was hoping both can be used and I am don't care about the speed only the compatibility.
    I have not bought the phone yet and the store was confused about this..
    I need to know what cable to get and if both or which USB can be used as I have many sticks with info and photos on them.

    You want to connect the iPhone to your computer with iTunes? USB 2 / 3 shouldn't matter.

    Thank you for the iTunes tip.
    I have been reading that desktops need to plug into the rear of the tower for USB 2.0
    I have to try soon.
    BTW, do I need an Apple account for iTunes?
