    The first night I got my phone, I had to reset my phone to "out of box settings", and set it all up again. This just after a couple of syncs.
    Then I went camping and was in a hurry so I only put music on for the drive.
    I got home and went to put my contacts back on but itunes froze up again (spinning wheel).
    Long story short, after about 3-6 syncs I have to reset my phone again (up until 2 days ago I was setting it as "New", then I discovered the backup option).
    I ran through a few things with an apple tech on the phone, making sure latest software, removing "COMPLETELY" iTunes and reinstalling (that allowed only ONE sync), it froze again while on the phone with him.
    Anyways, the wait for a "Product Technician" was over an hour and I had stuff to do.
    Today I set up my phone on my work computer and it seemed to work all day long. I will try it out all day tomorrow, but at this point I think it's my Macbook having issues.
    Any suggestions? I have so far removed all scripts and third party plugins, ran "Maintiget" <--- like Onyx but in Widget form, reset all permissions... I think that's it... anyone have anything else I can try before reinstalling OSX?

    It probably has to do with your macboo, take both of them to apple.
