I have iTunes installed on my home computer and have it synced with my iPhone. I'm in class and have my laptop with me. Can I install iTunes on this computer and sync it with my phone so that I have the same stuff on both computers and the phone? It seems like I should be able to do this, but I want to make sure before I do so.

Thanks.
:)

Hmm. I'm 95% sure that no, you can't. You can only sync with one at a time. However, you can choose to have it manually manage between libraries. That's not exactly what you want to do but it's the closest.

So, if I'm understanding you correctly, I cannot do this:

Sync my phone to my home computer in the morning.
Go to school and sync my phone to my laptop.
Come back home and sync my phone to my home computer again.


If so, this seems really silly/stupid.

Got it.

I need to copy the stuff on my home computer to my laptop. Once they're the same, I can sync each to my heart's content.

Thanks!
