Tips and Tricks:

The following steps will disable the automated iPhone backup during iTunes sync, substantially speed up the sync time. Open Terminal and enter:
” defaults write com.apple.iTunes DeviceBackupsDisabled -bool true ”
For you want to reverse this change:
” defaults write com.apple.iTunes DeviceBackupsDisabled -bool false ”


ONLY FOR ADVANCED USERS:
iPhone have many daemons running in background, these consume memory and system resources of the phone, some completely unnecessary for you, and simply delete these. SSH in your device to /System/Library and delete this:

com.apple.ReportCrash.DirectoryService.plist
com.apple.ReportCrash.Jetsam.plist
com.apple.ReportCrash.plist
com.apple.ReportCrash.SafetyNet.plist
com.apple.ReportCrash.SimulateCrash.plist  (Crash reporting services)
com.apple.CrashHousekeeping.plist
com.apple.DumpBasebandCrash.plist
com.apple.DumpPanic.plist
com.apple.stackshot.server.plist  (for debuging)
com.apple.powerlog.plist (log battery charging)
com.apple.datamigrator.plist (transfer contacts from SIM card to phone)
com.apple.dataaccess.dataaccessd.plist  (Exchange server syncing))
com.apple.apsd.plist (push)
com.apple.iapd.plist (for third-party accessories)
com.apple.AOSNotification.plist  (for MobileMe syncing)
com.apple.aslmanager.plist (system logging manager)
com.apple.syslogd.plist (logs system events)

Strongly recommended that you make a backup of all the files!
