How to disable sync warnings in iTunes Apps
Synchronizing iPhone with iTunes was always a pain for me because of the annoying warnings. Those dialogs pop up a message warning me that Contacts or Calendars, etc. will be changed on the iPhone and asks for permission. I'm a longtime iPhone/iTunes user so I know what I want to do and don't need to be warned again. The way to turn these off is very simple.

Just open the iSync application and go to its Preferences. Deselect the option 'Show Data Change Alert when ... of the data on this computer will be changed' or change it to the value you prefer.

Close iSync and you are done.

Don't mean to be a crank, but it seems like the bar has been lowered on what counts as a 'hint' these days. I always assumed that unless a preference had previously unknown effects, pointing out an option in preferences wasn't much of a hint.

I don't want to start an argument here, but I find these useful sometimes. Ok, some of the more obvious preferences are not exactly what I'd consider a hint, but I particularly liked this one (not very obvious or intuitive - since it's not even in the program that you're trying to affect.) But even fairly obvious ones may not be known to some people.

Honestly, it's been so long since I thought about iSync I sometimes forget it still has influence in the system.
