I have no idea how well this would work, but according to Wine database, itunes 11.4 should work fine.

I do not know if it will let you sync your phone.

Alternatively, run a Windows Virtual machine and run wine with it.

To add to this answer:

Rythmbox can sync with ipod's, don't know about iphone's though.

I would go with the virtual machine option (try virtualbox), I use a virtual box for all these types of hardware related things, like satnav, phone, etc. However, this is not a real solution to the problem. Having native itunes for linux would be nice, but this depends on apple.

I have heard some people I know complain about Rhythmbox and iphones. As you say, ipod works fine it appears.

From what I know from the wine DB most of the iTunes 64 bit system programs do not work well and would cause more problems than needed however, you could try the 32 bit version of the iTunes version 10.2. There are some alternatives listed already like using Rhythmbox or hosting a virtual machine but you said you didn't want to do that so I go for a comparable program. Some good ones would be Amarok,Clementine, Rhythmbox , GTKPod(more of a interface to add programs and music files) hoped this helped also, some list say songbird however, songbird hasn't been used on linux for some time as far as I know of.
