Apple to require iTunes subscription for iPhone

Apple will require iTunes service subscription for iPhone setupLet’s keep this one nice and short. The iPhone will require an iTunes subscription in order to setup the phone. We’ve been expecting this to happen and now we have confirmation, through emails sent out to those interested in the iPhone, that iTunes music service will be mandatory. This will make it easier to send Apple even more money by downloading music and ringtones – they will be getting rid of the biggest barrier, signing up for the service. Now all you have to do is click a simple button and Cha Ching! Apple gets paid. iTunes will be required to synchronize calendar and contacts.
