    I got a new computer and choose to start fresh instead of install from backup. I have transferred all my iTunes apps and movies to iTunes but when I try to sync it wants to erase everything and use what's in my new iTunes library. Which means I'd have to set up my email account again and loose all my text messages etc. Is there a way around this?

    You won't lose your text messages or email settings. You'll just sync your music, videos, and apps.

    But my only option is erase and sync?

    The only way you will lose your email and text is if you are erasing your iPhone as well. Otherwise your e-mail and text will stay on your phone.
