IPhone :: IOS: Backup Data And Setup As A New Device?
May 16, 2012
I have an iPhone that has already been synced with an HP laptop. This PC is now in need of repair but the price of repair was too costly so I bought a MacBook Pro to replace it.I would like to now sync my iPhone with my new MacBook using iTunes but when I attempt this I get a message stating that all the information in my iPhone will be replaced by all the information in iTunes (which is nothing). I cannot afford to lose all the information in my iPhone but also I cannot update my iPhone using iTunes because it has not been paired with my new MacBook and I am told that it can only be paired with one computer at a time. I cannot unpair it with my old PC because my old PC doesn't even boot up anymore.I was told that I could Backup the information in my iPhone by control clicking on the icon in the toolbar to the left of the iTunes screen which would then let me sync safely. I have now done this but I still have nothing to show for this in the iTunes library (no music, photos, notes, contacts etc.) and I have no idea where this backup has been stored. Also in the help menu in iTunes it says that media files such as songs, videos and some photos AREN'T backed up but can be restored by syncing with iTunes (how is this possible to restore something that hasn't been backed up in the first place?).
I Got a new iPhone today and they set it up in the store using my iCloud accout be it hasn't been updated in a few months so the data was out of date. I'm trying to transfer the data from the old phone to the new one using iTunes but I can't figure out how after doing the initial setup? I haven't really used the phone yet so I dont mind doing a factory reset as long as it won't effect my cell and data ( I don't want to have to go back to the store).
I'm trying to update my BB bold 9700 to 6.0 bundle 1879 (v22.214.171.1248 platform 126.96.36.199), when it reaches the modules backup 156 of 660 it says: Application Loader was unable to backup data on your device.
I got a replacement phone and recieved it already set up and the person from the store said i could restore it from my backup of my old phone. I have connected my phone to itunes but it doesnt show me an option of restore from backup.
How do i find this on the Summary part of my device?
I previously had an iTouch (3rd generation - 32 GB), now I have a new iPhone 4S. During the beginning of the setup process in iTunes, after registering the new iPhone with APPLE, when I am asked to set it up as new iPhone, or to restore it from my previous iTouch backup, which do I choose? It isn't clear to me, and I can't find the answer anywhere. If I choose to set it up as a new iPhone, will I lose all my apps and all my previous settings (and start over)? My computer is a MacBook laptop.
This past week, my phone "fell" and the screen broke beyond all repair. And I'm not talking about a crack...I'm talking about a huge crack as well blue lines being displayed whenever I hit the home button. Other than that, the phone still works. It charges, it syncs, it vibrates when I get calls or messages but I can't see anything on the screen. I know that I can still unlock though. I managed to backup my pictures directly onto my Mac using iPhoto. Besides my pictures and Calendar dates, there wasn't much that I cared for within the actual phone.Â
I went to my local phone service provider place and they told me that since my phone was a 4S and was covered for damage, I could send it to Apple in exchange for a new phone. I already contacted them and received my new 5C. Now, I'm not really worried about the pictures because they're already in my computer; I'm worried about all the Calendar dates that are in my broken 4S. Yes, I did do a backup AFTER it fell so I have a backup ready. But the thing is that I do not wish to sync this onto my new 5C just for the calendar dates. Â
I have an old iPod 4th Generation that I'm willing to use to restore with the backup of my 4S but I don't know how to do that. I was hoping that I could apply the backup of my 4S onto my iPod and then manually enter all the dates that I needed onto my 5C.
I reflashed all the factory images to my Nexus 6P (except userdata), and then restored a TWRP backup of the data partition. This worked, my phone boots up and obviously has my installed apps, etc. But... on the Nexus 6P when you restart the phone you have to enter your lock pattern or PIN. My phone was previously configured with a pattern. It seems the TWRP data backup didn't backup the lock pattern, because it doesn't recognize my pattern.
My fingerprint is recognized, but on the Nexus 6P you still have to enter the lock pattern or PIN when you first reboot. So, I have no way to get into the phone. I tried setting a new lock screen password with Android Device Manager, but it doesn't work. I still get the screen asking for the lock pattern. Is there any way I can get into my phone without blowing away all the data?
After my nephew played with my phone, now when i turn it on, it requires me to set up my phone. It gives me three options to set up as new iphone, or restore from icloud back up or itune. I had 900 new pictures from my recent travels. Have I lost everything?
I have had this error message on my Curve 8520.What solutions are there besides wipping the data on the device.Is there a way to backup the data before erasing all the data? I have looked into these solutions: url...The solution using JL_Cmder/javaloader its not working as I have XP64 and OS X.Desktop manager does not recognize the device and/or freezes. Hence I am unable to do a backup.
I switched phones a while ago and updated to iOS 5. When I got my new phone, iTunes correctly treated it like a new device. I have lots of pictures in a device backup file in iTunes (or do I?). (Location of device backups: Preferences > Devices) I can see the old device backups I did before updating to iOS 5 last October. Is there a way, without "wacking" my iPhone and restoring it to an older version, to get the pictures out of those device backups?
lost my old iphone 4s and got a warranty replacement iphone 4s. However when I tried to restore a recent backup I made to the cloud it said that I could not do it because the old backup was on an older ios and the new phone was on a new ios. Is there anyway that I can somehow restore this backup? Also I don't have any backups to itunes.
I recently got an iPhone 4S at an Apple store. They set it up for me, and instructed me how to backup my old iPhone onto my new one later. It's been a few days. If do the backup now, will I lose items added on the new phone since I've been using it?
I want to use iTunes to backup my iPhone but I want it to do it the same as iCloud does. So I want it to save app data as well when I try and do it I can store the apps on my computer but not the app data.
Anyone is able to tell me what is the data that is NOT saved in a normal backup?For example I am sure about the music, if you don't specifically sync the music, this is not saved and automatically restored during a backup restore (I just did a backup from iphone 3GS and restored data on the 4S).Do you know if there is any other data that is not copied?
I had to switch iPhones and tried to restore my Data to another iPhone. iTunes always tells me: â€ž... cannot restore because iPhone is not compatible or backup is corrupt". My "old" iPhone with all the data on it is already in use with another config. So I went back and tried with my old one (btw. both iPhone 4s 5.1.1 iOS iTunes is 10.6.3 (25)), same message!
I restored my MobileSync folder by using TimeMachine and tried the last 8 backups to restore and failed every time with the same message. I can access the backup by using MobileSyncBrowser or iPhoneBackup Extractor. The Data is there and accessible. How can I restore the data to my iphone? Is there a way to check backups why they are corrupt an fix them? Are there different iOS5.1.1 builds? Is there a way to check the Backup for the exact iOS Build?
I had my iphone password stolen (by somebody who was living with me) and my iphone data backed up onto their computer without my knowledge. This includes my email account which has confidential information in it. My question is - If they were to sync a blank Iphone to their itunes would they have access to all my data? When they try to sync that data with the iphone would iphone ask of them to go through the process of setting the email account first and then sync the emails or just sync it without asking for email pwds? Is there a way to stop that given it has been a month? ( I know as I said I wasn't aware till late)...
I had not backed up my phone in several years and was unfamiliar with the process. I opened Itunes and connected my iphone. I hit restore phone instead of backup. Not smart. Now, I have all the data on my phone from my last back up from 2011. How can I recover the original data that I was trying to backup?
iPhone 5s Screen is not responding. I have done the hardware reset by holding the home button and the lock button however it did not solve the problem I want to back up my data however there isnt a way of doing this without unlocking the phone. Is there any way I can do this.
