    I have a JB/unlocked iphone purchase which was loaded with lots of things ready to sync a few things with another computer. HOWEVER< I dont want to lose everything currently installed, or have to re-jailbreak. Is this possible??

    No, just make sure you authorize the computer in iTunes. Transfer purchases, and make a backup and save that backup somewhere safe.

    If you sync you will loose them unless the orginal owner authorizes you to his/her account. You didn't buy the so they are not yours. Hope you didn't pay extra for all the apps.
