It's really not that bad. For all its limitations, it does a good job managing several Apple devices and it does link you into a great wealth of books, apps, podcasts and Beatles music. What I like the most about it is that it just works. I haven't had to fiddle with anything in years. I think once you get over the fact that it's their way or the highway, you'll be fine.

I hate iTunes with a similar passion, having had it totally mess up my library the same as you. However, I do have an iPhone, which I love and wouldn't trade for an Android for anything (the apps just are NOT the same). I use iTunes (on my netbook only) to sync and backup my phone, but I don't use it for music at all. In fact, I don't even have any music in it... I figured if it didn't have music, it couldn't hoark my library, right? But I will confess that I also don't have music on my phone. With MM on both desktop and netbook, I actually haven't felt the need for music on my phone, too. But there is a MM plugin for iTunes that looks very interesting, if you do want music on the phone AND want to have the latest iOS version.

I would say go with the iPhone and just limit your iTunes exposure to the minimum. It's worth it.

You really need to use itunes if you want an iphone...Itunes is cool after all.It's very user friendly. Just buy other phones if you don't like itunes.

Even if you can sync to mediamonkey for your iphone you might find yourself not wanting to. iTunes' genius feature is pretty handy and you will want it on your phone. I have a lot of troubles syncing my ipod nano now because I want both my mediamonkey playlists and my itunes genius... It is very frustrating.

Yea theres no way around iTunes for iphone users as of yet, just like how not to long ago the only way to get an iphone was through at&t (that is of course locked). :-?

Yes, it seems that with just these components you can do it with MM as well.
