Hey, Dudes -

Tomorrow we're getting our 16gss--one for me, one for my wife---we're really psyched!

But I'm wondering--is there a way to limit what from my iTunes library gets imported to the phone when I synch it to my computer? I've got about 2500 songs in my iTunes library, and probably only want a small portion of them imported to the phone--is there any way to do that?

Thanks in advance!

When you sync with the phone you can go in and pick what you want to go to your iPhone, you don't have to put your entire library on there.

I don't believe that is correct. If you don't have "manage music manually" (or something like that) checked on the main iTunes screen it WILL try to put all your music on your iPhone.

Correct. You need to click "sync only checked items" or something like that.

If you have tons of stuff in your library, you can simply highlight the whole thing and uncheck it and then re-check what you want uploaded. That is what I did.

I make playlists and only sync the ones I want on the phone.
