Hi All,

Can you manually manage the stuff you put onto your iPhone? like you can with my prodyct (red) 2g ipod, you know where you drag a music file into iTunes and it just updates it straight away, or do you have to keep the music on your computer, cos if you delete it from your computer and then connect your iPhone and press sync, it will wipe all the music off your iPhone that was origanally on there? I don't fancy keep all the music on my computer as this takes up a lot of space on the drives.

Thanks

does that mean i have to keep my music stored onto my computer or is there another way of taking the music and photos and videos off my computer to save space and they will stay on the iPhone if i sync next time?

Thanks

Why not move your iTunes library to an extrenal hard drive? Memory is very cheap right now.

i deleted some of my music files before and then sync'd my iPhone, only to find they were removed :<
