    Im getting a new iPhone 4 during this week, and that means that i don't got any more open slots in my App Store account/ Apple ID, right? (its activated on 3 other devices.) How do i inactivate the account on just one iPhone? Restore the device?

    I don't think that's for iDevices, just desktop iTunes.

    iPhones aren't authorized. Authorization applies to computers only.

    Best just to completely erase all settings and data, restore to factory settings and be done.

    ^ yes. It's your computers that are authorized.

    I guess in theory. I had music given to me by someone else. Up until I tried to transfer it and play it on my computer via iTunes I did not know it was an iTunes album (when they were locked down completely). /shrug

    Nope. A maximum of five (5) computers can be authorised per iTunes store account. You can only use this option once a year, however.

    (But yep, unlimited iOS devices.)
