    Do most people here sync some content or do you choose to do a full sync with your iPhone?

    From the list below, if you only do a "Light Sync", what do you sync? If you do a near "Full Sync", what below do you not sync?

    Remember to vote how you sync as well!

    Contacts—names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
    Calendars—appointments and events
    Notes (sync with Mac OS X Mail* or Microsoft Outlook)
    Web bookmarks
    Music and audiobooks
    Photos
    Podcasts
    Movies and TV shows
    Applications
    Ringtones (iPhone only)
    Books
    iTunes U content

    I only sync my music and audio books.

    Apart from that my ms exchange runs e-mail, contacts and calendar.

    Thats it for me. Thanks

    I sync all the information, contacts, calendars, emails, and bookmarks (but not notes).

    I only sync a fraction of my music collection, a portion of my podcasts and videos, and only a few albums of photos. I sync all the ringtones I have on my iMac (only about 30). No books, no iTunes U, no audiobooks.

    Only some of my apps as well, some I only use on my iPad.

    Well now that I've answered I was wondering are you talking about every time you sync? I manually manage all my music,so don't usually need to mess with it, and really aren't syncing new photos and stuff every time I plug it in.

    It is hard to navigate too many apps. I just sync what makes sense. My photo and music library combined is too much too. Maybe the cloud and updated UI for app navigation will address those issues.

    I sync everything expect for my applications. I do those manually. I have about 800 apps stored on iTunes. Only about 100 or so make it on to my device.

    I sync everything but photos and email addresses. I like to leave at least 1 GB of free space.

    I use MobileMe to keep my calendars and contacts up to date. I use gmail in the mail app. It is on push. I only sync apps, music, movies when I plug in.

    Sync:
    Music (manually selected playlists)
    Apps (manually selected apps)

    Exchange OTA:
    Mail, Calendar, Contacts

    Thus, I don't have to sync that often.

    Music, apps, podcasts and occasional movies, but I usually throw these on CinXplayer so I don't have to convert them first.

    I sink everything I can within reason based on how much storage it has.
