Hi,

I think the itunes you are referring above isn't the one from the iPhone, but the software one on your Computer.

When you connect your iPhone to your computer and start iTunes on the computer, if it doesn't already, then your iPhone will appear on the sidebar of the computer screen.

You will then be able to select the iPhone and copy songs to it etc. as well as have it copy contacts and e-mail settings from your computer.

Regards

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.

Use iTunes
You can use iTunes to back up and restore your content on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Note that iTunes and iOS do not support installing backups of newer versions of iOS onto devices using earlier versions of iOS.
Back up
To back up the content on your iOS device, follow these steps:
Make sure your computer has the latest version of iTunes.
Connect your iOS device to your computer.
Choose File > Devices > Back up.
If you're using iTunes 10.7 or earlier, right-click the device from the list and choose Backup Now.
You can also back up by syncing your iOS device with your computer. When you use iTunes to sync, backing up is the first step.
To verify that the backup finished successfully, open iTunes Preferences and select the Devices tab. You'll see the name of the device along with the date and time iTunes created the backup.
Your backup in Devices Preferences

Restore from a backup
If you have a new iOS device, or if you need to restore your device to resolve an issue, follow these steps:
Connect your iOS device to the computer that has your backup.
Make sure this computer has the latest version of iTunes.
Choose File > Devices > Restore from Back up.
If you're using iTunes 10.7 or earlier, right-click the device from the list and choose Restore from Backup.

hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

How to set up my iphone


here are useful tips for your iphone set up.


Please read the Activating and Setting Up Manual Instructions below -
What You Need - To use iPhone, you need:
• A new wireless service plan with the carrier that provides iPhone service in your area
• A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
• Mac OS X version10.4.10 or later
• Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
• Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition
• Display resolution on your computer set to 1024 x 768 or higher
• iTunes 7.5 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
• An iTunes Store account (a major credit card is required to open a new account) â An Internet connection
Activating iPhone
Before you can use any of iPhone's features, you must activate iPhone by signing up for a service plan with the iPhone service carrier in your area and registering iPhone with the network. If you already have a wireless account with the carrier, you may be able to upgrade your account to work with iPhone, or keep using your old phone and add a new line for iPhone. (Some accounts may not be upgradeable.) You may also be able to transfer your current phone number to iPhone, or get a new one.
For more information about iPhone, including videos about how to activate and use it, go to:www.apple.com/iphone
Inserting the iPhone SIM Card
In some regions, you may need to purchase the SIM card separately and insert it into iPhone before activation. Read the documentation that comes with the SIM card for instructions.
If your carrier gave you a PIN number to use with your SIM, you may need to enter the PIN before activating iPhone.
Activate iPhone
1 Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
2 Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the dock and cable that
came with iPhone. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
3 Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to activate iPhone and sync iPhone with
your contacts, calendars, email accounts, and bookmarks on your computer. A single checkmark in "Set Up Your iPhone" syncs all these items automatically. Or you can use iTunes to customize the information you sync, and to sync your ringtones, music, photos, podcasts, and videos to iPhone. See the following section.
You can disconnect iPhone from your computer after "Waiting for activation" appears on the iPhone screen. When activation is complete, "iPhone is activated" appears on the iPhone screen. This means that iPhone is fully functional and you can use all of its features.
Important: If you are migrating your current phone number to iPhone, activation may take from several hours to a day and migration of your number may take several days, depending on your location and previous carrier.
Syncing iPhone with Your Computer
When you connect iPhone to your computer, iTunes syncs iPhone with the information and media on your computer, according to how you've configured the iPhone sync settings in iTunes.
You can set iTunes to sync any or all of the following:
• Contacts - names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
• Calendars - appointments and events
• Email account settings
• Webpage bookmarks
• Ringtones
• Music and audiobooks
• Photos
• Podcasts
• Videos
Ringtones, music, audiobooks, podcasts, and video content are synced from your iTunes library. If you don't already have content in iTunes, the iTunes Store (available in some countries) makes it easy to purchase or subscribe to content and download it to iTunes. You can also add music to your iTunes library from your CDs. To learn about iTunes and the iTunes Store, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Contacts, calendars, webpage bookmarks, and photos are synced from applications on your computer, as described below. Contacts and calendars are synced both ways between your computer and iPhone. New entries or changes you make on iPhone are synced to your computer, and vice versa. Webpage bookmarks are also synced both ways.
Email account settings are only synced from your computer's email application to iPhone. This allows you to customize your email accounts on iPhone without affecting email account settings on your computer.

Disable your internet security while trying to connect. Enable it after you have finished doing whatever you needed to do with itunes. You may also be able to include itunes and the itunes store in the websites acceptable to your internet security software.

Iphone will not restore error 13


You can resolve the restore issues using the troubleshooting steps found in this document:

1. Update to the latest version of iTunes

To see if you have the latest version of iTunes, open iTunes and check for updates.
  • Windows: Choose Help > Check for Updates
  • Mac: Choose iTunes > Check for Updates
If there is an update to iTunes available, install the update and try to restore again. If you do not have an active connection to the Internet, or your Internet security settings are configured to prevent iTunes from communicating with Apple, iTunes will alert you that the iTunes update server could not be contacted. Resolve your Internet issues and attempt to update again.

2. Restart your computer
Simply restarting the computer can clear up certain issues that could prevent you from restoring iPhone or iPod touch. After you restart, try restoring the device again in iTunes.

3. Open the proper ports and allow access to Apple servers
During the update and restore process, iTunes needs to contact Apple. Ensure that your computer has the following ports open and can access these servers:
Port 80
Port 443
phobos.apple.com, albert.apple.com, gs.apple.com
If you see "Error 9807", you must open access to the following VeriSign servers:
evintl-ocsp.verisign.com
evsecure-ocsp.verisign.com
If you are using a Windows operating system, you can follow this article to help resolve issues caused by third-party security software.
You may need to update, properly configure, disable, or uninstall built-in firewalls and other security software to prevent interference with iTunes. For assistance with this, contact the company that supports the firewall or security software you use. If you are using proxy settings, try to restore or update without using a proxy.
4. USB Troubleshooting
Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a different USB port on your Mac or Windows PC. USB 2.0 ports that are built in to the computer are preferred over a hub. If you tried connecting iPhone or iPod touch to USB ports on the front of the computer, try connecting them to rear USB ports. After doing this, try to restore the device in iTunes.
If the issue continues:
Remove all USB devices except the keyboard, mouse, and iPhone or iPod touch. Remove all USB hubs and connect directly to the computer.
Connect iPhone or iPod touch directly to the included USB cable, bypassing the dock.
Restart the computer.
Try to restore the device again in iTunes.
If available, test with alternative, known-good USB cables.

5. Restore on a different computer
If the issue is not resolved with the above steps, try to restore using a different computer. Ensure that the computer you use has USB 2.0 ports, the latest version of iTunes, and that you connect directly to the computer.
If another computer is not available, proceed to the Advanced Steps below.

How to load itune in my iphone?


iTunes does not load to your phone. iTunes is the program that syncs your music over to the iPhone. You have to download iTuens on to your computer, then sync the iPhone with the USB cable.
See this link:
Download the latest iTunes to your computer :
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
Set up iTunes syncing:
  1. Connect iPhone to your computer, and open iTunes (if it doesn’t open automatically).
  2. In iTunes, select iPhone in the sidebar.
  3. Configure the sync settings in each of the settings panes.
  4. Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the screen.
    By default, “Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected” is selected
Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
