iTunes sync on the iPhone?
So I've got a laptop and I've got a desktop...why cant I sync my iPhone 4s with both computers? I've got two different sets of music on each. Both iTunes is synced to the same account but not all of the music in my desktop library was purchased thru iTunes. Why can't Apple make this easy and allow me to sync my phone with both computers.
Is there any way I can accomplish this? Or am I SOL and will need to transfer the songs I want to sync to my iPhone to my laptop. I'd rather not wipe my iPhone which iTunes has instructed I will need to do.

This is what you can do.
1. Check if you have the same Apple ID
2. Check if you have authorize the laptop/computer for that
3. Now, it should work.
With or without purchasing from iTunes, you should be able do sync normally. Hmm. Weird.

When you say "sync" do you mean you want the different sets of music (music from computer A and different music from computer B) to both be on your phone? If so, I think you would need to choose "Manually Manage" in the phone settings within iTunes. You'd then just need to drag over the music you want to add.

What I do is sync with my work laptop only - I enabled homesharing in iTunes between the two and I get all my music. I only sync with the work laptop as I want the Notes from Outlook.
Hope that helps.
