To use iPhone, you need:
• A wireless service plan with a carrier that provides iPhone service in your area
• An Internet connection for your computer (broadband is recommended)
• An Apple ID for some features, including iCloud, the App Store and iTunes Store, and online purchases. An Apple ID can be created during setup.
To use iPhone with your computer, you need:
• A Mac with a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, or a PC with a USB 2.0 port, and one of the following operating systems:

Managing content on your iOS devices
You can transfer information and files between your iOS devices and computers using either iCloud or iTunes.
You can use iCloud or iTunes, or both, depending on your needs. For example, you can use iCloud Photo Stream to automatically get photos you take on iPhone to your other devices, and use iTunes to sync photo albums from your computer to iPhone.
Important: Don’t sync items in the Info pane of iTunes (such as contacts, calendars, and notes) and also use iCloud to keep that information up to date on your devices. Otherwise, duplicated data may result.
In the iPhone 5 User Manual is also explained about iCloud, which became one of the flagship features of Apple.
iCloud stores your content, including music, photos, contacts, calendars, and supported documents. Content stored in iCloud is pushed wirelessly to your other iOS devices and computers set up with the same iCloud account.
iCloud is available on devices with iOS 5 or later, on Mac computers with OS X Lion v10.7.2 or later, and on PCs with the iCloud Control Panel for Windows (Windows Vista Service Pack 2 or Windows 7 required).
iCloud features include:
With iCloud, you get a free email account and 5 GB of storage for your mail, documents, and backups. Your purchased music, apps, TV shows, and books, as well as your photo streams, don’t count against your free space.
Sign in or create an iCloud account, and set iCloud options: Go to Settings > iCloud
