    i was thinking about doing a clean install of Leopard when i get it, but it got me thinking about how my iPhone will sync afterwards. will it sync my contacts and iCal stuff back onto my computer? i know i'll have to redo my pictures and music thought. what will you guys do?

    :apple:

    I plan on doing a fresh install as well, and then importing my user account info back in from my backups. In other words, I'll restore most of my user folder when I get done with the fresh install. That should take care of any settings saved.

    I can't honestly answer if your phone will transfer it's contacts to iCal and Address book. I think it will, but I've never done it.

    it will sync everything just fine.

    i just redid my macbook with tiger. wanted to just get rid of all the programs i dont use anymore and start fresh with the ones i do use regularly. plus i was bored and wanted to do all that cool stuff again. backed up all pictures, music, and movies to a external and rebooted it.

    plugged my iphone in...BOOM...would you like to snc your Ical with all 2342342352345 dates?....sync...and your done.

    address book automatically did it also.

    Oh sweet, that's good to know. I'm going to be doing a clean install of 10.5 on a new HD, so it's good to know I don't have to copy iCal and Address Book over. Go iPhone!
