No stated limit.
2. Does Syncing multiple devices mean that all devices and my iTunes will always
have the same content? i.e., If I download a few songs to an iPhone and then sync with iTunes, will itunes then sync that new content to any other devices that I sync with my copy of iTunes, therefore all devices will always attempt to have the same content?
Depends. If all devices are set for automatic synchronization and they all have sufficient capacity to hold your entire iTunes library, then all devices will have identical content and will continue to do so whenever you add new content. If you're using manual synchronization and/or your entire library won't fit on one or more of the devices, then of course whether or not the devices have identical content will depend on you.
3. How does this affect store purchases? Can I sync multiple devices to the same copy of iTunes and how many times can I sync the purchased iTunes store content to devices? I know it's 5 computers, but what about devices?
Same answer as #1.
4. Lastly, can a device such as an iPhone be synced to more than 1 computer/iTunes? Can I sync my iPhone to my own copy of iTunes and then sync again to someone elses and will this then sync new content to all associated computers and synced devices on those computers? Again, what about purchased content in such a scenario?
Unless things have changed, an iPhone can only be synched to a single copy of iTunes. iPods other than the shuffle can be synched to multiple systems by setting to manual sync.Mac Pro 2.66Ghz 4GB, Mac OS X (10.5.4), PowerMac G5 DP w/ Mac OS X 10.5.4; Dell w/ Windows XP SP3

Can anyone confirm this please? That the iPhone can't be synced to multiple computers/iTunes. Because the iPhone has manual sync as well.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 25, 2008 5:11 PM (in response to Frankiedude)I have the exact issue. I am not able to access my from iTunes at the office with my iPhone. I can see the songs, "greyed out", but can't play them. Is this a bug???
All of my iPods can play music at the house and at the office. With the manual sync option I can add music from both libraries as well.
If this is not a bug, then what is the manual sync option for on the iPhone?
I paid for the music, why can't I listen to it? Has any one tried buying a duplicate song from the office to see what happens? Can IT be played?iPhone 3G (2.1), Windows XP
