My wife currently using Iphone 3GS and using our home laptop to sync... if I were to change to iPhone4... will there be any problems/issues to differentiate the 2 phones when we sync on the same laptop? some friend told me that itune will merge the sync and our contacts/files/applications will be combined... anyone has same experience or a solution? :dunno:

No prob, as long as you use a different iPhone ID name.

Apps can be used on both too... But not too sure about contacts sync tho.

Hope it helps.

I was using IPhone 3G and got itch to upgrade to iOS4, later my system got slow and not that responsive.

If you want to keep the two syncs separate, then you have to create separate accounts (user id) in Windows. You log in to Windows using your account and your wife logs in using hers. This will prevent both iPhones from synching the same stuff e.g. both will have the same songs synced.

This is because iTunes keeps the sync profile in the user profile of Windows. Different user id means different profiles, so you keep your syncs separate.
