    Can two different iPhones be used in iTunes?

    Also, can I have iphones connected to different macs? For instance, having an iphone syncing with iTunes on iMac and the same iphone syncing on iTunes on a macbook?

    Multiple iPhone's on the same computer - yes, perfectly fine.

    Syncing one iPhone to multiple computers - no. You'll have to erase it every single time you want to sync it with a different computer.

    Depends what you want to sync. You can have the iPhone sync, for example, Contacts/Address Book and Calendar on one Mac and, say, iPhoto and iTunes on another Mac.

    When you plug your device into iTunes, it clearly shows that you have to erase it to sync with this computer. How can you change the contacts the device sync with without plugging it into iTunes?

    On the Mac that you're syncing your Contacts/Address Book and Calendar, you go into the iPhone section of iTunes and tell it NOT to sync music and photos, and on the Mac that you want to sync your music and photos, you tell it NOT to sync Contacts and Calendar.

    If you try and sync, for example, photos or music on both Macs, then it will erase what is already on the iPhone. With Contacts and Calendar, you get the option to update the second Mac with the information that came from the first.

    There is a hack around the iPhone to one computer policy.
