**Why "i" in Schrodinger Equation**

Schrodinger Equation is "i*h*dphi/dt=H*phi"

That is to say that the change in the state is proportional to a linear tranformation of the actual state (I understood the logic behind that), H is hermitian and that means that its eingenvalues are real (right?). But what is the job of i? It has something to do with unitarity or conservation of probabilities perhaps?

Thanks!
