Easily sync iPhone without backing up first
Authored by: frijole on Aug 06, '08 08:29:35AM
[robg adds: Another advantage of this method over canceling a backup that has started is that it will leave your existing backup intact. The combination of iTunes 7.7.1 and iPhone firmware 2.0.1 has mostly solved my lengthy backup problems -- they're down to a more-reasonable five-ish minutes or so.]

The overriding warning, though, is that canceling a backup will corrupt it, and leave you without a usable backup.

This whole sync vs apply thing is pretty complicated. The hidden preference for iTunes is a lot easier, especially with Backup Disabler. </shameless self promotion>
