I just moved machines...it will only clear out MEDIA (music, vids) things that could be bad to allow to share (copyright, etc).
When I switched other data merged into new machine (which was blank for address books etc). Though I did take the precaution I read about making sure I had at least one contact in address book on computer.
Thanks very much! That message "iphone is synced with another itunes library...erase this iphone" is an awful message. It should just read "music" and not "erase this iphone". I didn't care about erasing all my music on my iphone, as I have it all on my computer stored safely. I did not want to lose my contacts, applications, txt msgs, call history, etc. I thought Apple was supposed to be user friendly.... changing computers that my itunes library uses was very stressful because I couldn't find out how to properly do it without "erasing my iphone". There needs to be an article on this at apple.com! If there is one, please point me to it so I can bookmark it for the next time I switch computers
