Just plug it in and when iTiunes asks what you want to do with it because it belongs to another user, just agree to erase that user and make it yours.

Then you can copy over whatever you want to it.

Keep in mind you have a limit of 5 authorized users in any iTunes account. So you could run into an error message that says you have 5 already authorized. If you know you don't no worries.

It will not affect your other iPhone because it is a separate unit.
