I want to be able to sync two different iPhones on the same iTunes account. I want to be able to sync different music and movies. Can that be done?

    You don't sync to an iTunes account. You sync to an iTunes library.

    I want to be able to sync different music and movies. Can that be done?

    Plug them in, select the tabs across the top and select what you want to sync.

    Thank you, is there anyplace I watch a tutorial for this?

    I want to make sure I'm doing everything correctly. I also want to make sure I select the correct option at the summary page when you first connect each iPhone.

     

    An APPLE rep told me to check Sync only checked songs and videos

                                                  Manually manage music and videos

    And he told me to uncheck Sync Music in the music tab

     

    So I am totally confused now.

     

    Thank you for your help.

    "is there anyplace I watch a tutorial for this?"

    Not really. And it's not that difficult at all.

    Plug it in, select it and select what you want to sync.

     

    " An APPLE rep told me to check Sync only checked songs and videos

    You can do it this way but it's a lot more work.

    (Apple reps are just people like you and me and don't always know everything)

     

    "And he told me to uncheck Sync Music in the music tab"

    I would not recommend this especially if syncing more than one device.

     

    Create a playlist (or multiple) for each device.

    Select the music tab and sync only the playlists you want. Then add/delete from these playlists to add/remove from the iPhone.
