I recently restored my iPhone4 on my Mac computer and I'm absolutely freaking out because my iTunes will not locate the correct backup (even when I left click on the iPhone icon in iTunes tool bar and select "Restore from Backup"). However, I can locate the file on my computer from the Library/ApplicationSupport/MobileSync/Backup. I've tried dragging it a bunch of different places/renaming the file to get it to show up in iTunes but nothing's working I saw that before I completed the most recent backup, it said the date before that was around mid-Jan 2012. The only backup file my iTunes can find is from 2010! My phone is not jail broken but if that's what it would take to get all of my data back.... I'm basically deserate.
I got my iPhone 5 replaced with a new phone from apple as there was a device issue.Â
i had a back up sync on my laptop with th eold iphone. but when i got a new one i wasnt unable to sync that wil the old content on the laptop. It asked me for a software upgrade. I connected the new phone to another laptop and got the software upgarded.. but unfortunately when i syned the new phone with the itunes restiored on my phone.. nothing got synced except whatsapp. I lost my photos, contacts and videos.. is there any way if i use the "reset sync history" i will be able to get the contents of my old phone on this new iphone.?Â
I lost my phone and needed to get a replacement. When I did, I started the activation process, but never got prompted to restore from iCloud, just from my last backup in iTunes. I've run the restoration, and the backup was pretty out of date. Is there a way to restore the backup I'd set up in iCloud at this point?
I really screwed up and had to do a factory reset so I lost my apps and all my settings. The only thing that I see is the Memo app. The Restore has recovered most of my data. What's missing is all the memos that contain a ton of important info. What do I need to do to recover the data? The data was not restored through a restore from backup.
My beloved iphone 4s was dropped in water. I have dried it out in rice for 7 days but the screen isn't working. I plugged it into my laptop to see if I can back up as I will be absolutely devastated if I lose my pictures but it says 'itunes cannot back up the phone as it is locked with a passcode'. I have always backed up to this computer so don't understand why it is asking for this now!
i recently bought iphone 4S and i had before iphone 3GS .
Now i wanted to transfer my data to my new phone and i had a back-up code which i never used cause when i used to connect my old iphone to my pc it was sync automatically and i didn't even remembered that i had input a code for my back-up so i cannot possibly remember it.
There is NO preference for changing the code via e-mail as every application devices services etc provide. I went to the i-storm which is the 'authorized' retailer for Greece and since i haven't bought the device from their store. (i bought it via my mobile company but it's APPLE for god shake.)
i have contacts photos messages from 1 and half year time which i cannot let go. Also, imagine to write one by one contact (680 contacts) If i knew that i wouldn't buy Iphone in first place.
I am trying to restore an iPhone 3 to a previous version. I keep getting the error message: "The backup "Angelo's iPhone" cannot be restored to this iPhone because the software on the iPhone is too old. To restore this iPhone from this backup, you must first set up the iPhone as new and restore the software to the latest version."
I have already done the following: -Updated my version of iTunes (current as of 6/17/12). -Restored the iPhone to factory settings. -Checked for updates, but it says the version is current.
i would like to ask about the "where itune backup are restored on your computer". i am following the instruction under the window vista and windows 7, and the note mention that we have to press the "RETURN"key, what is the return key??
I just connect iPhone 5 last night, iTunes asked for restore I thought it's back up by mistake. After restore all my photos from last two month gone and photo from last year come to phone! How can I get them back? photo are very import and memorable for me.
I previously had the iphone 4 but yesterday I upgraded to the 4S. I got home and restore all the information from my phone into my itunes account. This way I could plug in my new phone and do a backup restore to get all the apps, contacts, music etc on my new phone. However, within the past two months I have purchased quite a bit of music on my phone through itunes. Since then I had not synced my phone to itunes so I did that yesterday when restoring it. When I plugged in the 4S and did the backup restore, I do not have the songs that I have purchased within the past two months on my phone or in my itunes account. How do I get these back?
My iPhone5c failed and apple gave me a new one, so I followed the instructions and clicked 'restore and update' Amy's iPhone in iTunes, only after it went through the motions it is now calling the new phone 'Guest users phone' so I obviously did something wrong as none of my contacts photos etc are available.Â
Why couldn't it just have done what I wanted it to do..is there a way I can get back to the backup of my old phone?Â
I am using my brother's old iphone 3G, he said to restore and not to update the phone when I connected to my itunes. I updated then restored but now it appears to be wiped and the message on screen says could not activate phone??
got an iPhone 4 which I'm trying to set up so it's childproof.. now I can set up good restrictions etc and turn off find my iphone so it can't be restored to factory settings remotely.. but if they plug it into itunes they can just reset it and overwrite all my fancy settings?Â
Is there any setting I can use in itunes or on the iPhone itself to prevent that?
So the other day, I had plugged my roughly 2 year old iPhone 3GS into my macbook pro to charge, when it suddenly had a strange crash and said it needed to be restored. It took several hours to finally restore after many -1 errors. Now however, it cannot start syncing so I cant go back to the way my iphone was before the restore. Also, I can't use wifi or iMessage - it says that my username or password must have changed when it hasn't at all, and the wifi option is just gray, I cant even open it in settings. Nothing seems to be working, except basic texting and calling.
I have a black screen on my iPhone 4 saying iTunes with the usb picture underneath.Â Have connected it to macbook and opened iTunes. Â It recommends I restore and update which I have tried.Â I then get a message saying it cannot be restored. error 2008.Â Followed all the troubleshooting guide on apple website - latest update for iTunes, turning computer off, no other devices connected etc and have searched the web to find out what this error is but cannot find anything about error 2008.
my iPhone 4S won't be restored with iTunes, giving error 4013. I think I tried everything: DFU mode, another cable, another computer, reinstalling itunes...nothing works. The Phone suddenly stopped working completely yesterdag showing the apple logo for a few minutes, turning black. showing the logo, turning black et cetera. Just after the WiFi finally ended to be greyed out....Now I only see the 'connect to iTunes' picture.
I am trying to copy all my data from my torch to my bold siince the torch has to go for repairs, have tried deivce switch, normal backup and restore, backup through blackberry protect, everything else works fine except the copy of contacts, which obviously is the most improtant thing. when i try to restore the contacts through the DM, through the customize option where i can select what i want to restore (contacts, emails, etc) everything else is open to choose except the contacts, where i cant select the contacts as its marked in grey and a little piece of information below says this is only a read only data hence cant be copied.
