    Default Update or Activate First

    My new iPhone 4s should be here tomorrow. Should I activate it first or should I update it first with the newest software?

    I just had to get a replacement 4S due to lock button stopped working. Replacement came on old 5.0.0 so I activated it, restored my backup/media, and then updated my OS to 5.0.1.

    I think you need to activate it first (think you need data set up). Unless you just plug it into iTunes and update it that way. Maybe it will let you do that. I'm assuming you need to activate first, though.
