You can set your iTunes so that it will not sync atuomatically. You can also pick & choose what will and will not be included in the sync.

Check out all the option tabs )Summary, Info, Ringtones, etc.) to set this the way you want.

go to Edit -> Preferences -> Syncing and CHECK "disable automatic syncing for all iPhones and iPods"
it will be there regardless of whether you have sync'd before.

iTunes won't just start erasing your phone, without warning you first. A pop up message will tell you that your iPhone is synced to another iTunes library. You then have the option to cancel the sync or sync and erase everything..Mark

Ha nope. Once the post posted I looked at the topic and it was different than the one I though I was in. So I went home and sure enough it was in the worng one. It's weird because I clicked on the link from my mail and I never posted in this topic so I don't know why it brought me here.
