Quick question for iPhone/Mac users


Established Member

I'm going to get an 3GS (my first iphone) and want to get ready for it so just had a couple of simple questions.

If I update my mac address book with all my contacts from my current phone, and add photos of the people etc. Will all the information sync automatically to the iPhone when I hook it up?

I have a 60Gb iPod which is almost full. How do I determine what music goes onto my iPhone? Do I have to setup an iPhone playlist?

I'm guessing the first question is a no brainer but a bit unsure about the ipod/iphone/itunes combination.

OK, thanks. I'm still a bit confused though. A playlist in iTunes is just a collection of songs yes?

I want a certain amount of albums/artists on my iPhone but organised exactly as they are on my iPod. Is that possible? I kinda would like to setup my iTunes in time for getting the iPhone so I can just plug and sync.

Just throw the songs/albums in your playlist and the iPhone will sort them all into exactly as they are on your iPod (into Artist/Album/etc).
