Transferring purchases from my work computer to iphone
I recently purchased a song on my iTunes on my work computer. I sync with my home computer. When I try to sync my iTunes with my iPhone it warns me that it will delete all my songs on the iPhone. How do I circumvent this problem and transfer my purchase from my iTunes to iPhone.

Can you select the manually manage the information when you connect to your work computer? You need to be using the same itunes id, then you have to authorize the computer. I think that should do it.
Worst case report a problem and redownload the song at home or your iPhone.

It won't delete your library if you turn on the manually manage option with your home computer... but it Will if you adjust thats setting while connected to your work computer. It will warn you first though even after checking the box.
With the iPhone, even in manually manage mode you can not transfer songs from more than one computer to the phone.
Is your work computer a laptop? or your home comp? A work around is to turn on home sharing transfer the song from one comp to the other and synch with your phone.
