    One account? One AT&T account? One computer? One itunes account?

    one att acct and one iTunes acct and the same computer. I could load each with different music from my iTunes library, which is huge. Could that be done, maybe by swapping sim cards? Just curious. I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep my current iphone when I get the new one - I'll have it for a backup.

    You can have two iphones on one computer and you can choose entirely different items (playlists, songs, podcasts,etc) to sync with each iphone.

    You can also have two iphones on one AT&T account, but you do have to pay for the unlimited data plan on each - if you want all the features (i.e. visual voicemail) to work on each iphone.

    As far as itunes(mobile - iphone app), If you want to buy music from both iphones itunes application, I'm not sure how that would work, sorry. But if your not planning to use each phone to purchase music - no issue. Maybe someone knows about this issue.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks. it's just something I'm thinking about. I will probably end up selling my current one to a family member or a friend. Anything but ebay.

    You can use 2 different iPhones linked to 1 iTunes account and download music via the iTunes app in the iPhone. The only catch is that to get the music on both phones you have to connect to your main iTunes library and transfer purchased songs off your iPhone and then sync them over to the other iPhone. We have been doing this for months and it works great.
