    Upgrading in two weeks to 3gs from my 3g when one becomes available.
    Eldest daughter taking over original 3g phone with payg card.
    What is the best way to set up itunes. Obviously I will have 3gs setup exactly as my current phone, but my daughter only has access to the same itunes. Do I setup an account for her on same pc and then sync her phone to that one.
    Apologies if topic has already been covered

    Well I'm totally new here, I don't really know much about the iphone, but there is a piece of software out there called VMWARE which allows you to create multiple "virtual machines" on one computer. You could then install a separate itunes for your other phone on a virtual machine. The itunes that manages your phone wouldn't know anything about the other itunes running.

    This might be over complicating things tho. There might be a much simpler way that I just don't know about. But VMWARE is pretty boss. You can do lots of cool stuff with it.... :)
