How to sync iPhone to new computer
Have moved to dark side within the last month... First bought a 3G iphone, then an Imac. Guess those commericals are working. Use Windows for most of my business applications and website programming.
Before I bought the iMac, synced my 3G iphone with Windows XP. Really like Apps/Store. Have over 100 apps (mostly free). I recently hooked up my iPhone to my iMac and it says it's already associated with another phone.
To transfer my iPhone to my iMac, do I need to create another account in Itunes store, and then transfer my files to that account.....? Just asking for your experience.

Log into your same iTunes account. and then click on Authorize(sp?) computer. Then i THINK you have to download all of your apps again. oh and music, you can just consolidate your library, and then move it to the iMac.

I'm rather sure that if you switched from a PC to a Mac that any Apple store will transfer all of your files (no apps) to your mac for free. Maybe you should call an Apple store and see about doing this. Then no transfer will be required, only the authorization as described above.

To transfer non-iTunes purchases to your new computer:
Alternatively, if you take your PC and your iMac to an Apple Store, an Apple Genius can transfer all of your data for you, and help you set up the iPhone.
