    It shouldn't be too much of a problem as long as your boyfriend authorizes your computer to use everything you have on your iPhone. Make sure when you get your laptop to transfer all of your purchases. Otherwise anything else that you might have on there will have to be put onto your new computer via a USB drive or something.

    As long as the content you have on your iPhone originated from the iTunes Store. It should be easy if that's the case.
