1. "I just got an iPhone unblocked and every time I tried to use YouTube it told me I need to connect to an iTunes with an internet connection and enable YouTube, which I do but can't figure out what to do in iTunes to enable this..." -eldiego40100
2. "The biggest downfall I find for the YouTube app on the iPhone is that it's in no way tied to your account, so if you find something you like on the desktop and want to share it with others, you have to "re-find" it on your iPhone. Hopefully that's something that will be fixed soon because it does keep me from using the YouTube app more regularly." -Vincent Ferrari
