Couple of, hopefully, simple questions.

I have tried to google these but there is just so much to look through that I thought I'd ask here... Hopefully they're fairly easy to answer.

I acquired a first gen iPhone 2.1 last night and after a fairly lengthy trial and error process I have it unlocked and working perfectly on the Orange (uk) network. As far as I can remember (as my more technologically minded friend did most of the work) we used the Pwnagetool, in expert mode and then used bootnueter to 'flash' it (hope that makes sense)! Anyway, all working fine and very happy but I have a couple of questions.

1. We unlocked it on my friends iMac, and it was synced to his iTunes at somepoint. What will happen when I go home and plug it into my mac and open iTunes? Will it ask me to do anything awkward?

2. Is there anything I can't use with my unlocked iPhone? App Store etc? I originally thought that you couldn't use AppStore but can't find anywhere to confirm that.

Sorry if of these questions are stupid/obvious!

Thanks in advance.

1. Yes it will look for your friends computer to sync with...

2. No, everything will still be available for you to use.

Hope this has cleared up your concerns!
