    AFAIK, the iPhone can only be sync'ed with one computer.

    You can in fact sync to two computers. You can only sync certain things from each. Meaning, my work pc I sync contacts and calander (Outlook) info, I then sync at home music, video etc. Make sure you check off the box in iTunes what info you want. You can not however, synce music on both coputer to the phone. There is more info here on the site and in Apples website to do this.

    OK, I do NOT want to double sync music. I was hoping to double sync my Contacts, though...

    Yeah I found out you can't sync music from two different pcs. I put music on my girlfriends iPhone from my pc and she went to sync to hers and it will erase the music.

    Guess I'll make a playlist of the songs from my itunes that's on her phone and then burn it and put them on her itunes. I don't know anyother way to do it.

    You can double sync info, but not music or movies

    I sync my iPhone to a Dell PC at work and a MacBook at home. On the work PC I sync calendar and contact information, and when I sync to my Mac I sync everything including calendar and contact info. You'll get a message saying "This iPhone is synced to another computer, do you want to merge or replace information?" Choose "merge" and your iPhone will carry both sets of information from both computers. Easy as that! I have noticed that in the iPhone sync tabs you have to recheck the contacts, calendar, ect each time, but that isn't too big a deal.
