SOURCE: I m not able to

Is your phone seen in itunes at all?? have you got the most recent version of itunes installed on your computer? You cant format the phone you restore it back to factory settings if you follow the info ive put below, Please leave comments .
If you phone doesnt show in itunes, then power down your phone and hold down the home button (circle on on front) whilst plugging into itunes itunes will then say it has detected an iphone in recovery and start the restore...

Use the following steps to restore your device:

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.

  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  8. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, after a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.

  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be able to see the following in iTunes:
    ht1414_08--set_up-003-en.png
    Select the backup you want for your device and select the Continue button to complete your device's restoration.

If you do not want to restore from backup, select "Set up as new..."

How to download music on a iphone 3g?


there are several ways you can download and put music on your iPhone 3G

1.-Purchase songs in iTunes directly on your iPhone (this will cost you money and require you to create an iTunes account,if you download apps, you already have one).

2.-Insert a CD into the computer you plug your iPhone to, open the CD with iTunes, and rip the contents of the disc into iTunes (iTunes has a tutorial for this if you need further information), sync your phone with your iTunes on the computer and the songs will be added to your song library in your phone.

3.-You can use a P2P (peer to peer) sharing program ex. Frostwire, Winamp, eMule, to download the songs onto your computer. Take note of what folder these downloaded songs are being sent to. In iTunes, select File>add folder to library, a window will open, select the file where the downloaded music is located, and iTunes will add it into the music library in iTunes. Sync your phone with iTunes and the downloaded songs will be added to the music library on your phone

Deleting songs from iphone


you should be able to go into itunes and delete the songs, then sync your iphone again. If that doesn't help then I would go into the apple store and see why not. you can also just call apple for support for free if you are an at&t subscriber good luck

Iphone: problems deleting music


n itunes, on the top menu bar, where (File & Edit) Reside you should see store amongst the options. Click that, then on the drop down menu click authorize computer, enter your apple id. After that see if you can use the option "Transfer purchaces from iphone to itunes". After that is done look on your music library list in itunes, uncheck the songs that are in there (the ones from your iphone should be if synced properly). Now select you iphone from the device list. Next to the summary tab on main itunes screen you should see info next to that. Amongst those tabs locate Music. Click it and make sure Sync selected songs is checked, then in the bottom right corner click Apply. This process should "de-sync" your music. I hope this info helps.
