NEED TO DOWNLOAD PROGRAM IN MY IPHONE


Do you have the app store logo showing on your phone? Also, when you connect to your computer (pc/laptop/etc.) do you have itunes application?

If so, you can download programs through either means - the app store on your iphone will download direct to your phone. The itunes application on your computer will download, and then when you sync will add to your phone.

i dont know how to put music or mp3 in my i phone??


to install games/apps:
Go to itunes store and on the side there is a button that says App Store. Click on this and there will be a whole range of apps. You can choose from games or fitness or heaps more! The are some for free and there are ones that cost money. To get one that costs money you will need a itunes voucher. To download a free or money one click the little button next to the app you want saying "get app". This will then go straight to your itunes library and will sync when u want it to.

to install music:
Create a new playist on itunes and name it iphone. Drag music files from your itunes libary into the iphone folder.

to put these onto your computer:
plug your iphone into your computor with the cord that was given with it. When your iphone shows up in the devices coloum click on it and in the bottom right hand corner there will be a button saying sync. Before clicking on it go to the music tab on your iphones page. Then click what playlist you want to install (in your case the iphone folder). The go back and click the sync button. Wait for your computor to sync all the things you want onto your iphone.

Repeat this everytime you want to download anything. U may not have to do the music thing.

Hope i helped..

cant download apps application on phone


the iphone will sync your apps but you shoudn't need to restore it ever. unless you absolutely need to
if you are downloading apps from the itunes store, they will show in the upper most side menu on itunes.
plug your phone in and when it mounts, it comes to the summary, which shows the ipod picture.
in the upper part above the ipod picture you will see tabs, click on the apps tab and choose your settings. IE sync all apps etc.
Click apply and you iphone will sync your apps. it may take a few minutes because it backs up your phone also transferring the apps on the phone to your computer to sync.

Do I get charged if I remove an App from my iPhone & buy it again


Yes. All iPhone apps are backed up on iTunes, so if you want to remove it, just delete it from your phone. However, the safest thing to do is probably to do is:
  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer
  2. Once iTunes starts up, select your iPhone from the side panel
  3. Click on the Applications tab
  4. Choose what Apps you want to be synced with the iPhone. To remove them, uncheck them
  5. Apply the changes and sync the phone.
If you want to add them later, just go back, check the Apps you want, and Apply and Sync.
