Question about Apple iPhone 3G

1 Answer

I cant seem to sync anything from itunes to my iphone although it does copy items bought on the phone to itunes. It runs through the motions as if it has worked but simply not found anything to sync. I have already removed and re-installed itunes and upgraded the software on my phone as well as deleting the sync history ans I am now completely stumped. Any ideas?

I can't sync my tablet to my phone


You most likely need to sync your iPad with iTunes on your computer, then sync your iPhone with iTunes on your computer. Then, all three items (iTunes on the computer, iPad, and iPhone) will be in sync. Everything is synced though iTunes, which is on your computer.

iTunes is the "Mother Ship".
Your iPad and iPhone are shuttles that dock with the Mother Ship.

How to copy my ringtones from iPhone 6s to iPhone 7 Plus?


When you want to transfer ringtones from old iPhone to new iPhone, you will come up with the sync problem when using iTunes. iTunes provides a "Transfer Purchases" function for the you to transfer purchased items back to iTunes library, but the customized ringtones cannot be transferred back. If you are not sure about how to use the "Transfer Purchases" function of iTunes, check out the following tutorial.

1. Start iTunes, and go to "Edit > Preference > Devices". Check "Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically".
connect iphone to itunes.
2. Connect your old iPhone to PC via USB cable, then double click on the iTunes icon to launch the iTunes app on your computer if it did not start automatically when your iPhone is connected to computer.
3. Click "File > Device > Transfer Purchases" at the upper corner. Then click "Apply" at the right bottom. iTunes will automatically sync the transferred items to iTunes library, and the purchased ringtones will be transferred back as well.
4. Then disconnect the old iPhone from computer. Connect your new iPhone to iTunes following the step 2. Click on your iPhone, click the "Tones" to open the ringtones tab. Check the box for "Sync Tones" and then check the boxes for the ringtones you want to sync. There are 2 options avaliable, check "All tones" to choose all the ringtone files to sync, or check "Selected tones" to select the specified ringtones that you want to transfer. Finally click "Sync" button in the bottom right corner of iTunes, it will start transferring ringtones from iPhone to iPhone via iTunes. The synced ringtone files will appear on your iPhone as a ringtone automatically.

If you want transfer customized ringtones between 2 iPhones, you may need a 3rd party tool on your computer. Feel free to read the following tutorial for details.

I dont know how to install music in my ipod


Please Follow the steps

Step 1: Launch iTunes and plug in your iPhone.

Step 2: Create a new "playlist" in iTunes. Name it whatever you want-say, "My iPhone Playlist" or something like that.

Step 3: Drag the songs you want from your iTunes library to your new playlist-in this case, "My iPhone Playlist"

Step 4: Click on your iPhone and go to the Music tab. "Sync Music" should already be checked. Now click on the button "Selected playlists", then tick off "My iPhone Playlist" (or whatever your playlist is named).

Step 5. Sync your iPhone and when it's done, the songs from "My iPhone Playlist" should now be on your iPhone. If you want to make any changes to your mp3 library on your iPhone, you'll have to modify the songs within your playlist, then re-sync again. Yes, I know it can be a pain.

It seems that my iphone 3g is processing lot of things. so , it seem to be lagged. Does it have like reset button or anything?


Restoration of iPhone to original factory defaults will likely to fix all problem, with the downside that all data and information stored on your phone will be lost. Normally iTunes will make a backup automatically when you connect and sync the iPhone with the program, however, it’s still a good recommendation to copy out and backup everything that you may need on the phone before proceed to restore the iPhone.
To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:
1.Turn off iPhone – Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your ifone already off. 2.Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. 3.Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows pc .Release the button if you haven’t. 4.Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet. 5.iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK. 6.You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore. 7.Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related problem.

I bought my iphone off a boy selling his, but i cant get my itunes account swapped over to instead of his ..any suggestions??


Just connect the phone to your computer and do it through itunes. When you sync the phone to yours it automaticaly does that you can change the name there as well. Or go to settings in the phone and go to store almost to the bottom on your iphone and select sign out then sign back in with your new account. But b warned, items purchased with his account won't work with your account.
