    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    You can charge it without any problem. After connecting it, iTunes will appear, so just close it and nothing will be transferred. If you transfer thing from his iTunes, your phone will be erased and your content will be replaced by his iTunes content

    iTunes will ask you to erase the phone when you connect a different phone, so just close iTunes or ignore it and nothing will happen

    iTunes asks you if you want to transfer your data to his iPhone, so if you don't select the wrong option, it's not easy. iTunes never transfers your data to another iPhone automatically

    As I said before, iTunes will ask you if you want to erase the iPhone and transfer your data, or don't do anything, so choose this option
