iPhone SDK - testing on "designated" device?

in iPhone edited January 2014
Hey, I'm just getting my toes wet in developing with XCode, and plan to develop for the iPhone OS. I have the SDK, but haven't yet joined the developer program.

I've been watching the intorduction videos in the documentation (good stuff), but one left me with a question. In order to test on the target device, it needs to be "designated". From the video, it seems like a modified version of the OS is loaded, with the hooks for app deployment, debugging, instruments, etc. The home screen looked like it had significantly fewer icons than the default, which is the source of my concern.

Can I continue to use my device for normal daily use, while also using it as a test target?
