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

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.

Cant update my iphone 4 (model mc609ll )


Perform a recovery-mode restoreIf your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is already showing the "Connect to iTunes" screen, please go to step 5.
  1. Connect your USB cable to your computer but not to the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch until step 3.
  2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    • If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
  3. While pressing and holding the Home button down, connect the USB cable to the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The device should turn on.
  4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen. When this screen appears, you can release the Home button:

    Note:
    If the image of a battery appears, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has some charge, and then start with step 2 again. If you don't see the Connect to iTunes screen, try these steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. iTunes should automatically open and display the following message:
    [img alt="Alert text: "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode..."" width="520" height="241" src="http://km.support.apple.com/library/APPLE/APPLECARE_ALLGEOS/HT1808/HT1808--recovery_alert-002-en.png" data-hires="true">
    "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes."
    If iTunes not open after two minutes, please open iTunes yourself.
  6. Use iTunes to restore the device.

WHEN I TRY TO SEE RECENT CALL HISTORY THE I PHONE 3 GS REVERTS TO THE HOME SCREEN. IS THERE ANY WAY OF RESOLVING THIS?


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.

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.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How do I add itunes music to iphone from computer itunes library? Is this possible or do I have to buy all new songs from the iphone Apple Store?


Yes it can, connect your iphone to your computer, at this point as soon as your computer recognizes the iphone itunes should open up.. if it doesn't just open it up yourself. Now on he left where all the playlists are there should be an icon with you iphone there, click on it. Now to the right there should be a tab labeled "music", click on it now you can select wether all your music will transfer over or just certain playlist. There you go.
