    Default 2 Phones syncing to 2 Macs

    I just got my Macbook Air and I have a iMac.

    I'm wondering how I can sync with both Macs without having to erase data.
    Or if there is a way to make it so that only one of the iPhones (the iphone that is primarily with the Macbook air) can sync with that device.

    Is there a iPhone backup file that needs to be moved to the Air to make it think that this is the first computer it has synced with?

    It's a bit more complex than what you're hoping for. Here's a step by step on getting it to work:

    Simple. Sync all your devices to MobileMe - that way, a change on any is replicated to the others. The first time you do it, do it from the one device that has all you want - then, when syncing other devices, select the option to replace all on that device with what's on MobileMe.
