    What you can do is schedule a appointement at the Genuis Bar and bring your old PC to them and buy you imac just before that and they will transfer all the needed data that you want!

    If you have a brand new comp, all your data on the iphone will be lost but you can transfer your purchases if you authorize your mac.

    Not a problem, I transferred my contacts, music, video, photos, TV shows, pretty much anything on my iTunes was transferred to my new computer and iPhones as well. Google "transferring iPhone/iPod data from PC to Mac computer." There are many that cost money and there's just as many FREE ones as well. Good Luck...

    Congrats, my friend! In the span of 2-3 weeks, my wife and I have picked up a Macbook, 2 iPhone 3Gs, and the iMac will be here tomorrow.

    FINALLY FREE

    Set it to manually manage to stop it syncing, until you got everything set up on the iMac.

    Senuti (Everything In Reverse) was the bomb and my best friend.

    4Media iPod To Mac Transfer; didn't work for me b/c it was free for the first 100 files, then $29.00.

    Hope this helps...:cool:

    Not sure about the contacts, but I used Senuti to transfer my music, video, TV shows and Podcasts to my Mac Pro. The program worked fine with my iPhone.

    Here's a website that can walk you through everything:
