    I just got my wife a 3GS, and we are sharing one computer to use iTunes. Can you sync address books in a one way fashion like you can in Blackberry's device manager, or is it only a two sync operation?

    As far as I know, it's two way, i.e. it will merge the data. But, what I did on my pc was the Mrs. has her own Windows profile, and I have my own. So, my iPhone will sync with my Outlook, and thus my data, and when she logs in, her iPhone & iTouch will sync with her Outlook data...

    Ah, thanks. Would've been nice to be able to desginate a one way sync when needed. I had mistakenly synced all my contacts onto her phone initially, and then would've liked to just resync her iPhone to her yahoo contact list, but then it would sync all my contacts on her phone to her yahoo account too, if it was a two way sync.

    She has a backup from before you synced, no? If yes, just restore

    Haha. I guess the term isn't exactly right, but blackberries' device manager does give you more options in syncing. My example being a perfect example how a one way sync from yahoo account to iPhone would've saved me from having to manually delete all my contacts from het phone before resyncing to her yahoo account.

    I agree it would be a useful feature.

    I expect Apple will implement most of the basic PIM features other platforms have since they're a long way to go in that area
