Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2010 10:57 AM (in response to RocketJSquirrel)The "Open iTunes when this iPhone is connected" option is disabed when the "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically" option is checked in iTunes preferences, under Devices.
Did you restart your PC since changing the option? The AppleMobileDeviceHelper service may still be running in the background.24" iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2010 11:10 AM (in response to whatheck)Right. Un-checking the preference to prevent auto-sync re-enabled the auto-start option. Then I was able to check and un-check the auto-start option and re-check the prevent auto-sync preference. Now all seems well. Despite appearances (the un-checked option), the internal setting was in the wrong state and twiddling it seems to have set things right.
What a boneheaded user interface, where items on widely separated parts of the UI affect each other invisibly.Intel 32-bit, Windows XP, iPhone 3G 16GB iOS4.1

Thanks once again!
Now I can just charge the battery again without iTunes nagging me
