Hi everyone...thanks in advance for reading my post.

I recently got an iPhone (hacked using ziPhone) and have experienced VERY slow response and sync times in iTunes. For example, upon connecting the iPhone via USB, iTunes takes at least 1-2 minutes to stop "pinwheeling" and display the device. When I try and click on one of the sync tabs, such as Info, it can take upwards of a minute to respond. And of course, syncing the iPhone, even when no changes have been made, can take upwards of 10 minutes. My colleagues running on the same PowerBook with the same RAM have instantaneous response and sync.

Furthermore, I notice that sometimes my sync doesn't move over new music added to my playlist. I added new music but it wasn't transferred. I re-ran the sync and it picked up the second time. Strange.

Has anybody else experienced such slow response times? I have included my computer details if therein lies the problem...

Powerbook G4 1.5 GHz
OS 10.5.2 Leopard
iTunes 7.6.1
about 800 contacts in iCal

Thank you,
