I am guessing you are using windows. also is the phone unlocked? you need to make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed and the correct drivers for your machine. also if youhave any antivirus software running you might want to turn that off too. if the phone is working correctly and all above has been tried your phone might have a hard ware issue

I want to sync my I Phone 4 to a established file on my computer?


before you can sync your iPhone with anything, you need to setup iTunes on your computer and set it up for syncing. putting a file from your computer on an iPone from the computer, is not syncing, buy copying. For that you need a different tactic. Depends even on what it is you want to put on the phone.
When you have an old backup from any phone, or even from the iPhone 4 you now have, you can't add that to the existing files on the phone.

IPhone deletes my contact names when I sync it to computer! Leaves the numbers, delete only names.


If you've set up automatic syncing, iTunes syncs your device by default whenever you connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer. If you don't want iTunes to sync your device without being prompted, you can change this setting.

You can prevent unprompted syncing for any specific iPod, iPhone, or iPad; or for all iPod, iPhone, or iPad devices you connect to your computer.

To prevent unprompted syncing for a specific iPod, iPhone, or iPad:

  1. Connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer.

  2. In iTunes, select your device (below Devices).

  3. Click Summary, and then deselect "Open iTunes when this Device is connected."

To prevent unprompted syncing for all iPod, iPhone, and iPad devices:


  1. In iTunes, choose Edit > Preferences.

  2. Click Devices.

  3. Select "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically."

    If this checkbox is selected, any connected iPod, iPhone, or iPad won't sync without being prompted.

To sync your iPod, iPhone, or iPad when unprompted syncing is disabled, connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer, and then choose File > Sync "Device Name" in iTunes, or click your device (below Devices) and then click Sync.

For more information, see the iPod, iPhone, or iPad User Guide or the Apple Support website.

My iphone does not sync. I tried syncing it with different computers but I get the same error message "itunes cannot read the contents of the iphone"...It is a jailbroken and unlocked iphone 4.....


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..

Error while syncing my iPhone to itunes-phone won't turn on now


in order to fix your phone, you`ll have to force it to DFU mode and then iTunes should be able to detect it. Once detected, it would ask you to update it to latest firmware. Afta the update your phone would work just fine.

To get it to DFU, follow these steps.

1.Connect your phone to PC.
2. Turn it off completely. To turn it off, press and hold the power button untill you get the the option, slide to turn off.
3. Then, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds.
4. Without leaving the power button, now press and hold the HOME button, for 10seconds.
5. Now leave the power button, but keep holding the home button for next 20 seconds.

The phone should be detected by the PC to be in recovery mode. Now, iTunes will help you update and/or restore your phone.

I get the following error messages: Attempting to copy to the disk failed, disk could not be read or written to & Erro message: The iphone cannot be synced. The required disk cannot be found.


I was having a similar problem. I kept getting a "device timed out" or a "disk cannot be found" error when syncing.
However, when I repaired my disk permissions, all problems (and weird iTunes crashes) went away and I was able to sync everything: photos, music, contacts, calendar, etc.
1) To repair disk permissions (on a mac) go to:
Applications-->Utilities-->Disk Utility
2) Select your hard drive in the left pane
3) Click "repair disk permissions"

Iphone ringtone wont play


I had the same problem. I hooked my phone back up to iTunes and synced my phone. Ringtone disappeared from phone, but remained in my computer's iTunes. Then I added it back to my phone through iTunes by syncing ringtones specifically. Here is step by step:
1. Plug in iPhone 2. Sync Phone 3. Click on iPhone, open Ringtones tab 4. Check "Sync ringtones" box and Select your Ringtone 5. Click Sync
This worked for my phone. Hope it helps. I used my phone to download ringtone.
