Iphone won't sync with itunes

I have an original iphone that's never been jailbroken or any such thing and it will not now sync with itunes (8.0.1). I've tried resetting the phone, restoring from itunes, and even reinstalling itunes but to no avail. When I plug my phone into the computer(imac G5) itunes will recognize the iphone and start to sync however no progress is made and it keeps attempting to sync in perpetuity without success. Please advise. Thanks

Hmm, interesting, so you say it shows up in itunes and even lets you do a restore, but it just doesn't sync music? if so, consider yourself lucky that you can at least still use it as a phone. if you can't sync at all, not even to restore, you most likely have a broken logic board or dock connector, you can try to replace those components yourself, there are guides websites online that teach you iPhone repair skills, but you should have a little tech background to embark on such endeavors.replace the dock connector first, because it is a much cheaper part, if that doesn't do the trick it's the logic board.

Iphones stuck on reboot apple logo


If your iPhone is jailbroken (do not restore from iTunes) Instead try to restore using the jailbreak software used originally.
Please take note as to why I displayed the top message first. As for the iPhone through iTunes, you are stuck in what is known as a boot loop error. A restore from iTunes is required provided your iPhone is not jailbroken. The 5.1.0 release for the jailbreak is not yet out and you will not be able to downgrade back to 5.0.0 once you restore from iTunes.

How can you reset a forgotten password on the iphone a1203 phone


If you have synced your iPhone with iTunes before you forget your iPhone password, you can reset your iPhone by using iTunes without losing data. Through iTunes, you can restore your iPhone from the last backup and remove the passcode from your locked iPhone while retaining your data. If iTunes asks you to enter the passcode, try another computer. Otherwise, you have to follow the reset iPhone Passcode with Recovery Mode section below. The following steps will show you how to reset iPhone password with iTunes.

  1. Connect your iPhone to the computer with via a USB cable that your iPhone has trusted.
  2. Launch iTunes. If you've synced your iPhone with iTunes, then no "enter password" is required.
  3. iTunes will automatically sync your iPhone and create a backup file. If it doesn't, you should sync your iTunes and create a backup file manually by in the Summary window.
  4. In the Summary window, you can see the option "Restore iPhone". Click it and follow prompts to choose the latest iTunes backup to restore your iPhone.
After the restoration process is complete, your passcode will be erased and all your data will be restored from your backup. You will now be able to access your iPhone without any passcode. And you can set your new password on iPhone.

Hi you can apply factory reset from SETTINGS menu under General menu as "RESET" this will reset everything . But by doing so you will loose all your settings including Jailbreak.. So it is up to you,either use it as it is or RESET and return the original Apple settings which than you will able to snyc with itunes.... take care..

How do you remove synced photos from the iphone?


You can do this in iTunes - with the iPhone connected select the 'photos' tab and deselect the folder containing the photos, then hit Sync to remove them.
Alternatively, just move the photos to a different location on your hard drive (out of any folder that is set to sync to iPhone), then connect to iTunes and hit sync.
Hope that helps!

My music shows up on my iphone only while connected to itunes.


Could be a bug in the jailbreak, I have seen this before. Restore the iPhone to original stock, locked software and re-jailbreak and unlock using the latest method from QuikPwn Dev Team. Once completed, it should resolve the issue.

My iphone won't sync with itunes. it did at first but now keeps coming up with an error I have an original iphone, never been jailbroken or any such thing, and can not currently get it to sync with itunes...


Recharge
Make sure iPhone is charged. Connect to a USB port and look for the lightning bolt battery icon in the upper right. If you don't see this icon, then iPhone is not charging. The battery will charge to 80% in an hour.
Note: If you put your computer into sleep mode while iPhone is connected via USB, iPhone may not charge.


This screen means to keep iPhone connected so it continues charging. Please note:
If iPhone is not sufficiently charged it will not show up in iTunes
Use a high-power USB port such as the one on your computer, or use your iPhone AC adapter.
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.
Make sure you are using USB to charge. Accessories that use FireWire to charge are not supported with iPhone.
If you see the red part of the battery image flash three times and then the screen goes black, it means that iPhone is not receiving power to charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Retry with a different USB port.
Note:
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Restart

Try restarting iPhone. To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Does iPhone appear frozen or stuck? Try pressing and holding the Home button for at least 6 seconds to close a frozen application. Then try restarting iPhone again.

Note: If that doesn't work, try restarting your computer.
If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Reinstall

Reinstall iTunes 7.7 or later.
Get the latest version of iTunes (7.3 or later) from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Thanks.
