How do I back up my iPhone 4g to my Apple laptop?

When I plug it in it does charge but I don't know what to do to back it up to the cloud and sink it to laptop and Apple tablet. When I used to back up the phone to the MacBook Pro I thought all I did was plug it in. I plugged it in now and it is charging but I don't see it in the Finder so I could start the backup.

You can back up your iPhone with iTunes on your computer, however, you are not allowed to view the backup contents on your computer. And iTunes won't allow you selectively back up your iPhone data, so I recommend you an iTunes alternative named AnyTrans. This guide will help you a lot.

My mb was stolen I have a borrowed one but I still have my same number I put a block on it straight away last sunday afternoon

Contacts and pictures can only be recovered if you had kept auto back up options ON , to your clouds services, like google, apple or any other available. or if you have backed up periodically your mobile at your PC / laptop.
Else i dont think any service provider company can get you back your pictures or contacts of stolen mobile.

HTC Evo 4G VS. iPhone 4, Which Is Better

HTC Evo 4G VS. iPhone 4/HD is a discussion within the general iPhone/HTC chat place, HTC Desire is earning praise as one of the best Android phones yet. And the biggest competitor – iPhone 4 will delay the release date. Some grapevine said that HTC Evo 4 will be released first, it is expected to be released on June 4 of the current year.

The HTC Desire, iPhone 4 represent the most capable devices you can buy now. Can we enjoy youtube on iPhone 4? Or need a iPhone 4 Video Converter for Mac to watch youtube videos? In this article, we will compare the two performances in the below.

Screen :
iPhone 4G: 3.5 inch screen
Evo 4G: 4.3 inch screen

Unfortunately, the jury`s still out on resolution because we don`t know the full story with the next-gen iPhone. Neither phone sports an AMOLED screen so it could be a toss up if you factor out the size difference. Convert AVI to iPhone 4 for mac

Network Provider:
Presumably, the new iPhone will be stocked by AT&T. But it may not be that simple. The WSJ reports:
The new iPhone would work on a type of wireless network called CDMA. CDMA is used by Verizon Wireless, AT&T`s main competitor, as well as Sprint Nextel Corp.
The Evo 4 looks to be Sprint`s first hot phone in some time. AT&T and Verizon hold the majority of the mobile market in their thrall, but this looks to put Sprint back in the game.

The Evo`s snappy Snapdragon processor offers top-notch speed. Odds are a next-gen iPhone will improve on the 3GS`s already respectably zoomin` speed, so I`d imagine they`ll balance out.

The Evo will take the cake unless the next iPhone can top 8MP, which would be a pretty huge jump from 3MP on the iPhone 3GS.
Both the Evo and the iPhone 4 will have front and back facing cameras, seemingly to support video chat, and both have flash.
As for video, the Evo 4G`s got a big emphasis on HD streaming, HD recording and HD output (transfert Movies on iPhone 4 Mac). We don`t know yet about the iPhone 4G`s video capabilities beyond knowing that they`ll certainly exist.

HTC`s Sense + Android 2.1 vs. iPhone`s OS 4.0. This boils down to preference, really. Though obsessive customizers would be better served by the Evo 4G, Apple fans are famously loyal. But keep in mind, Android`s had these features all along.

It`s a matter of preference, though the phones actually kind of resemble one another. The HTC Evo boasts a huge screen. The iPhone is an iPhone, so of course it`ll be sexy and sleek. Both are kind of squared-off and a bit more rugged than some of their more curvy counterparts.
Overall, what do you think? Will you be switching things up this summer? What`ll it be?

I purchased a phone from someone and i dont know there icloud or itunes pass word . i need to swap all info from phone to other phone

There is software on the market available to do a complete back-up without the itunes/icloud password, however that is the recomended of doing it as you will recieve support from Apple if extremely nessasary, but i would only ring Apple if all else fails ($25 support charge) for help with resetting lost passwords or forgoten Apple ID then click this link

Itune is not supported on my pc an my iphone disable

First what type of PC and operating system is running on it.

Do you have a active contact with a cell phone compony?
if so make sure you have your iPhone fully charged.

You said that your iPhone is "Disable" do you mean it is locked up?

If so do a reset, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo

Then after it powers back up go into "Settings" then go into Wi-Fi and connect to your Wi-Fi or if you don't have one you can go to most fast food places and use their Wi-Fi.

Then after getting connected to a Wi-Fi go back into "Settings" and then go into General" and then into "Software Update" to check to see if you have a update to install. If so install it.

Then go back into "Settings" and click on "iCloud" and log into it with your Apple ID and then and make sure your settings are correct that you had before. If you have not done so turn on backup so you can backup to the cloud till you get a system that will allow you to install iTunes.

I drop my iphone 4 in the sink

First of all: Don't try to charge it or turn it on unless you're sure all the water has come out. You write it's gotten hot. That means the battery discharged very rapidly du to the water inside the iPhone. It might be the battery or surrounding circuits have been damaged by this, but first let's get the water out.

Put your iPhone in a closed container filled with rice (uncooked! fresh from the store). Rice is (like salt) pulling all water from it's surrounding. Don't use salt as salt can lead to heavy corrosion.
It's a good idea to open the SIM tray.

If you keep this jar/box in a warm place for several days all water will evaporate from the iPhone case into the rice. After that you shouldn't see any traces of humidity left on the iPhone. If unsure leave the iPhone with the rice for a few days more.

Plug the charger in and wait a few minutes to see if the charging indicator shows up or the iPhone starts. Be prepared to pull the plug in case the iPhone gets host very fast. Good Luck.

If you had set your iPhone up with iCloud (a free apple service) then your iPhone is backed up in the cloud and you can simply plug your phone into a computer with itunes and select reset and and restore from icloud. But if you had not set up icloud and you have synced it on a computer with itunes then just simply restore your iphone from the last backup.
