    Ok so I've had my 8GB iPhone (hack-free) since month 2 after launch. Since day 1, I've been syncing it with my work PC in order to get my calendar and contacts synced from Outlook. This has always worked fine for me. NOW, however, I want to offload the management of my iPhone to a personal PC at home. They both have the same version of Outlook (2003).

    To convert it to my home machine I want to first just "cut the cord" from syncing just the Outlook calendar items to the iPhone on my work machine. So, on my work machine, if I go into iTunes and UNCHECK the sync calendar with Outlook checkbox (leaving the contact sync checked since I want to keep that for now) and apply. It performs a sync. After checking my phone, it's still syncing my calendar items.

    What I want it to do, is obvious stop syncing, BUT MOSTLY, I want it to remove all the calendar items currently on my phone.

    Any assistance would be great!

    If you turn off syncing and then click replace items will that work?

    No because as soon as you turn off syncing calendar items...the "replace items" option is disabled!

    Sorry no answer but a newbie question.
    How have you been syncing with outlook. I do not see the outlook checkbox you make reference to.
