Hi all,

I have a question about connecting iPhone with iTunes.  Can I connect one iPhone to iTunes on different computers?  So if I sold my laptop and then got a new one I am assuming that I would be able to use it with both?  And I have two different laptops can I connect the iPhone to both?

Cheers Lilly

If they are the same as iPod, then you are limited to syncing with one PC.

To sync music across multiple PCs requires workarounds and/or third party software.

Each 'item' can only be synced with one iTunes Library at any given time.  You can however have the contacts calendar mail videos etc synced from one machine, and the music synced from another.  Not sure how often that function will be used, but can imagine a household with a central music library but want unique sync for personal data.

Thanks both for your help.  Can you tell me then what I would do if I sold my laptop and got a new one?
