    Hey guys so I have a curious question. I have always sync'd my previous iPhones with my PC but recently I purchased a macbook pro and figured why not sync my new iPhone 4s to my Mac. It will run better and sync to the apps easier.

    The problem is I have NONE of my music on my Macbook and would rather leave it on my PC. Is there a way to sync like contacts, notes, etc...on my Macbook but put music on my phone from my PC?:confused:

    Thank you!

    iTunes Match?

    Check the "manually manage" music checkbox on the main iPhone screen on iTunes. It will not sync on any device and you can drag and drop music and movies from any computer.

    I will try this, just worried it will give the whole "this phone is not syncd with this computer" and won't work blah blah

    And I cannot do this because I put in a 120GB SSD and have way more music than that.

    I forget which one, but you have to start it in either windows, or mac for both to work. I used to do it a couple years back for the iPod.

    What do you mean? Setup wise?
