    as long as you don't have itunes set to sync with your music library you should be fine.

    I heard that 2.0 was a different update than the rest, its like a fresh install update that deletes everything from before. Not sure if this is true, but may want to check before upgrading 2.0.

    I lost all my contacts after the upgrade to 2.0. I have not synced my iphone in qutie a while and I think I am SOL. I expected it to do a sync before upgrading to 2.0 and bring it all back. That did not happen. I got some contact which were many many months old ( have a hunch it was older than the last time I sync'd though not sure ). Foolish me for leaving it all to automatically do things. This is quite bad.

    Why can't you retrieve your contacts from your computer's backup drive? I always backup data that is critical for my job.

    IIRC, to go from unofficial to official release you have to restore and will lose everything
