iTunes beta 3 syncing questions
Wife is still on 4.3.3 and still synced with our PC. We just bought a Mac and haven't moved her iTunes over yet. Can anybody confirm:
1) if we move her iTunes over to our Mac, will her 4.3.3 device sync with iTunes beta 3? I know iOS beta 2 won't sync with it
2) we want to jump her to beta 3. If we can sync her 4.3.3 device to get a back up, will her 4.3.3 back up restore onto beta 3? Or is it only back ups from beta 2?
We don't want to upgrade her to beta 3 since her contacts or anything else isn't imported/synced to Mac. If anybody made the jump from 4.3.3 or know the facts on this, I greatly appreciate any feedback.

I haven't gone "backwards", but I just restored from my backup with each beta and no problems.
4.3.3 > beta 1 and restore; beta 1 > beta 2 and restore; beta 2 > beta 3 and restore. Haven't tried going back to a previous beta and/or back to 4.3.3.
Not sure what to tell you, but this has worked well for me.

Honestly, if you didn't start with beta 1, I wouldn't depend on a restore from 4.3.3 to beta 3.

lol I was just about to tell you that it didn't work for me but I'm glad it all worked out for you. When I went to beta 1 from 4.3.3 I restored from the 4.3.3 backup and it worked fine. When I went to beta 2 I went back to 4.3.3 first to do a fresh reload of beta 2 but when I tried to restore from the backup it failed. The same happened on beta 3 but perhaps that is because of the way I did it.
