my iphone won t sync after ios 7.04 update

iphone unlocked

I can't get my iPhone to sync everything on it to iTunes which in turn won't let me update my software to iOS 5

I connected my iPhone 4 to update software and synced the phone first, but once the sync was done and I went to update it and it said that not everything on my phone had transfered. Then I went to the file drop down menu in iTunes and selected transfer purchases and it would transfer maybe 10 things and stopped completely. I reset my phone, my computer, reinstalled iTunes, and even tried to restore my phone but cant because not everything from my phone has been transfered to my computer.


Can anybody help me?

iTunes won't allow me to update from iOS 3.1.3 to iOS 4 on iPhone 3G

So I know that when it comes to an iPhone 3G, it is better to keep it at iOS 3.1.3 however I really want to update it to the latest iOS. Thing is, it wont allow me to. Everytime I would click on update it would end up saying that my iPhone isnt eligible for the requested field. Its quite annoying and I have no idea what to do anymore. Ive tried restoring my phone and Ive looked online EVERYWHERE but nothing comes up so I have decided to go on here and see if anyone can help me out. It would be greatly appreciated as I dont know what else to do.

iPhone won't play some videos since iOS 4.1 update

A week ago I updated my iPhone 3G to the latest 4.1 iOS. Everything went fine (well, theres less signal bars in my cellphone provider), but besides that, all fine. Two days ago I realized that some of my music videos (all bought from the iTunes store) wont play and the iPhone will skip to the next music video.
After trying many times to play the same video, eventually the video will play fine (without problems).
I tried playing the same videos in my MacBook and they all play fine. So I dont think is an iTunes store problem. Could this be an issue regarding iOS 4?
Please advide and help. Thanks.

iPhone 4 won't hold charge after iOS 7 update



Im hoping I can get some help with this issue. I updated my iPhone 4 to the new iOS 7 software and now it will not hold a charge. The update was completed just fine last night. I left the phone on the charger all night, but when I awoke this morning I noticed the battery percentage was showing 20%. I was confused and checked the charger; unplugged it and plugged it back in. The phone recognizes that a charger is in the port (audio feedback as well as visual), but the percentage slowly decreases. I also tried using two other chargers to see if it was in fact my charger that was at fault. Same results. Inevitably, the phone reached 0% and shut down. I never had this issue before upgrading to iOS 7. I had iOS 6.1.3 before upgrading and I routinely charged my iPhone 4 daily without any issues. Ive tried everything I know to do; any help would be much appreciated.


Thank you.

ITunes won't download the iOS 4.3 update that it says is available

I have an iPhone 3Gs and was notified today that there is an update to ios4.3 available. In the iTunes device summary, the button says update; there is a newer version available (4.3), but when I push the button it says, This version of iTunes (9.2.1) is the current version. What is going on? Is there an alternate method of downloading/installing the update?

iOS 4 - photos won't sync

Im not sure if this is a coincidence, but after I installed os4 I tried to sync pictures from files on my computer. My phone has been syncing for nearly 4 hours and still nothing... Whenever I turn photo syncing off and sync my phone, everything is fine. Ive already checked, and the problem is not insufficient memory, and I have tried it with the include videos box checked as well as unchecked. I havent synced my photos in a while, so it could simply be moving slowly, but 4 hours of sync time still seems a bit unreasonable. Even when I got a brand new phone and had to load all of my music, pictures, and apps back onto it, it did not take this long to sync. I have tried everything I can think of. Any ideas?

Jailbroken phone won't turn on after trying to install ios update

I have an iphone3 that was jailbroken but I decided I wanted to updated my apple software on it (no longer interested in having my phone being jailbroken) and now the phone wont turn on.

Exchange Calendar & Contacts won't sync w ios 4.1

Since I upgraded my iphone 4 to ios 4.1, the calendar and contacts for my Exchange account wont sync. Email works fine. Ive tried un-syncing and re-syncing, deleting and re-adding the account.
When I open the calendar or contacts, the progress wheel spins for an eternity with no results. My battery went from 100% to turning off within an 8 hour period with limited use, which I attribute to the attempted syncing.

MobileMe won't sync calendar contacts or bookmarks on iOS 4

Bookmarks, Contacts, and Calendars all missing after resetting MobileMe settings on iPhone. When opening Safari, Contacts, or Calendar, the wheel spins in the menu bar and doesnt load anything. A similar thread in the MobileMe thread (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=11718366) states that even a restore from scratch wont fix the issue.

HT1386 iTunes won't sync all of my music to my iPhone after software update yesterday

This is INCREDIBLY annoying. Every time I update my phone or itunes, this is what happens.

Apps won't install or update over 3G or wireless only via sync

Ive been having an issue for several weeks now where I cannot install or update any apps on my iPhone over-the-air (via 3G or wireless). When I install or update one from the App Store, the icon appears on my screen and says Loading.. but nothing happens, it just hangs there and no progress happens with the download, and it never installs. Resetting the iPhone has no effect.
Once I connect my iPhone to my computer and perform a sync via iTunes, the application then downloads via the computer and then installs on the iPhone.
I dont when or how this exactly started, but I never had issues before when installing Apps from the App Store over the 3G or wireless networks. Any ideas?
