Try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo, then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.
If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.
Hope this helps and if so please vote.
Thanks

How can I sync contacts?


I'd like to recommend you using a data backup tool,
Transfer Contacts from Android to PC

with this, you can selectively choose the contacts to backup, which allows preview.
And you can sync many other data, too.

Hello my i phone 3gs 32gb cant start and apple is


  • When did the last time you sync your iPhone to your computer? As a result, iTunes should have backed up all contacts, notes through out that syncing process.
  • Try hard reset, hold power and home button at the same time until Apple logo show up then let go of buttons.
  • If it's still not working, you may need to restore the phone, update to latest firmware available, in this case your phone will be wiped out BUT with the above being said, you should be able to restore from back up you have earlier.

Basically my iphone wont rsetore everytime i want to retore it will come up with an error


Step 1: Find out which generation your iPhone is by looking at this link http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3939
Step 2: Download the correct generation with the most up-to-date number, the higher the number, the more up-to-date it is. Example: A 3GS iPhone, that would be the most up-to-date would be iPhone 3GS (4.2.1/8C148a). The 3GS tells it that it is the iPhone 3GS. The part I have put in bold, is the update number, the higher that number is, the more recent it is.
Step 3: Go into iTunes, with your iPhone plugged in, go to the left side of the screen, scroll down and select your iPod.
Step 4: The right side of your screen should now show the general iPhone information. Scroll down the screen on the right side until you see a button that says "Restore". Hold down the SHIFT KEY on your keyboard and click "Restore" on your screen. This will pop up a menu.
Step 5: From that menu, choose the update you just downloaded and hit OK. Your iPhone will now be restored. After a few minutes, you will be greeted with a welcome screen to re-sync your iPhone.
This is the only method that seems to work.

Sync the 3GS with itunes, ensuring you check all the options you want the sync profile to capture.
then right click on your handset in the left hand bar and select 'Backup'
when you get your i4, restore it to that backup and your data will be transferred.

I have iPhone 3Gs, by accident I did reset all the system and data, how to get back all the system and data to my phone ? Thank you..........


Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

Reset


To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears


More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Can't sync iPhone 3GS 3.1 with Vista iTunes 9.1


Zone Alarm and itunes do not play well together. ZA running will corrupt some pictures, apparently some music and does not allow the update of an ipod (touch) to occur. I have had to turn off ZA for any of the above to get either a clean install or adding (or removing) photos.
