    Is there a way to configure iTunes, so that it will sync two iPhones with the same exact setting and content (contact, email, bookmarks, ...)?
    I need to have one iPhone ready at all times for backup.
    Or, is there any other easy way to identically sync two iPhone. I need to sync several times a day.
    I know, I could back up one iPhone with the backup of the other, but this is complicated in the long run.
    Thanks for any feedback.

    Of course. Just restore one of them from the backup of the other one. Now all the same apps and contacts and calendars will be the same.

    I'm trying to find a way without restoring from the backup. I would like to sync both iPhones once or twice a day. Restoring takes too long.
    I guess what I want is impossible.

    Hey cliff, you didn't mention if you have a PC or Mac. On my mac I hold down the option button while starting iTunes and it prompts to start another library. I separate my iPhone and classic this way. :)
