    I connected my iphone to itunes today and it says its synced to another itunes..so it needs to erase and sync. What do I actually lose from erase and sync, will all my photos, contacts, apps be intact ?

    I read the link, so the erase and sync only deletes media ? music and videos ? I actually don't have any music and videos to begin with on my iphone.. does that mean that everything will remain intact ?

    I'm not sure since that hasn't happened to me :confused:

    Don't want to give you wrong information, just wanted to provide you with the article I found while I was searching for an answer for you.

    Hope someone sees the thread that has had that happened and can answer it directly :)

    Depends. Was your iphone ever synced with another computer? If so, what was synced to the iPhone from that computer?
