Sync iPhone contacts and calendars without iTunes
Authored by: tricil on Feb 21, '08 01:43:27PM

I too use a laptop with an external iTunes library and find that it is possible to sync though iTunes regardless of if the library is connected or not.

Bookmarks & Contacts always sync first, then media.

In fact, despite the media not being there, it won't remove songs UNLESS you have a "smart playlist" synched (like Recently Added) for example. Then it will sync the playlists if a song "expires" from the list.

Adding songs to the iPhone is possible too because iTunes defaults to ~/Music/iTunes Music when the external is gone and then you can Consolidate Library when you're reconnected, so don't be afraid to use the iTunes store on your phone and add to the library.
