itunes, iphone contacts

Q: itunes, iphone contacts

Hi guys,
I have a slight problem - a client has an iphone and he backed his contacts up using itunes but the laptop he backed it up on no longer works so I have his hard drive plugged into one of my systems so i can get any files.
But I have no idea what format itunes would save contacts in or where to look.
And can I then put the file on another PC to import onto his new iphone 4?
I should point out that I don't use itunes myself and my client has been very vague as he doesn't know PCs.
Can anyone help
Thanks in advance for your help
Kind regards

Lloyd

Preferred Solution: itunes, iphone contacts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: itunes, iphone contacts

The link you provided in your edit is for Vista but I think I may have found what you're looking for.

The folder is hidden so, click on the Start Orb and type (without quotes) "%appdata%" and hit enter.

It the resulting Explorer window navigate to Apple Computer/MobileSync/Backup.

I took a look inside mine and just saw a bunch of data files. I imagine the info you're looking for is in there somewhere. Hope this helps.

EDIT:

Yeah, it appears in the article you linked that the guy used a Mac to decrypt the binaries for the address book data. He said "ideally" you'd use a Mac but didn't give any other alternative.

I just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

thanks

Hello, I have multiple issues regarding address books and contacts. I am currently trying to organize multiple address books on my Win 2000 desktop(outlook express) my laptop XP (outlook 2007) and my IPhone 3G. They are a mess because of old cell phone backups combined with address book entries. I now have multiple entries for numerous contacts etc.
After organizing all these contacts/address books I would like to import to my new Win 7 desktop (outlook 2010 beta) and retire my Win 2000 desktop. These are all stand alone computers that are not networked other than through a router to share broadband access.
I tried searching for software to help combine and organize all three of these but had no luck.
I then tried manually updating all my contacts on my laptop and Iphone but I ran into a glich of sorts. After making the changes on my Iphone and doing a ITunes sync, some of the contacts disappeared. Right now I am not sure how many, but I noticed a few of the ones I use alot are gone on both my laptop and Iphone.
I do not subscribe to or use the "mobile me" feature.
I have spent quite a bit of time searching the net without finding a solution.
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!
Thank You!

Hi, I did a quick search in this forum for iphone related threads, but didn't see any that fits the bill of my problem, so I have started this thread. If it's in the wrong section, please let me know and I will move it.

Background:

Laptop - Dell Latitude 610 (1.7 GHz, 512 MB)
OS - XP Pro SP3

I am syncing the iphone 3G through itunes with my Outlook contacts and calendar items without any problem on my PC at home, but it's a completely different story at work with the Dell laptop. When I first got the iphone, it worked fine with the Dell for a couple of days, but when I came to work after the weekend, everything went south.

Symptoms:

Once I hook up the phone with itunes, it registers it, but when I hit the sync button, it goes to sync with my contacts, and stays that way for eternity. 10-15 minutes goes by without any changes, and meanwhile, the machine slows to a halt. I can't run any other program in parallel, and it would take 30-40 seconds just switching in between windows. So I would have to manually cancel the sync. Afterwards, the machine remains slow as molasses. I go to Task Manager and would see that the OutlookSyncClient.exe continues to run even though I exited itunes. This is not the case on my home computer. When I exit itunes, that particular process stops as well. If I click over to the performance tab, it would show spike sin CPU usage, and off the chart PF values, like in the GB range. It also is taking up 40-50 MB of memory as well... Read more

You can't transfer non purchased music to iTunes from your iphone, you will have to import it from another source. For the music purchased from the iTunes store there are two ways to do it.

So, on Sunday I had a few too many drinks and lost my iPhone. 02 are sending me a new sim, and hopefully I can get my old number back. Because when I had an iPhone, I synced it with iTunes, I'm wondering if my contacts have been saved in iTunes or somewhere else. Now with the research I've done online, people have said they can sync them back, but that's because they still have their iPhone to sync back to, I've lost mine, I'm wondering if there's a way I can access the sync'd contact info without actually having an iPhone, any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:iPhone Contacts

Were you syncing your contacts to Google or Outlook? Because if you were then you will be safe. The contact information will be synced back into your iPhone. However, if you are relying on the iTunes Backup, I suggest to be very careful how you do it. When I changed PC and started syncing my iPhone to the new PC, My contact data got corrupted and I lost my music (I managed to get back after a few days and headaches). Thank goodness I could go back to my Google and Outlook Contacts that I sync with my iPhone.

I just acquired an iphone 4s and noticed that many contacts from my Outlook 2003 contact list are ones that I don't need on my phone.
Is there a way to have itunes just sync specific Outlook contacts by placing some sort of symbol in the contact name, say an "@"
sign and only have itunes select ones that don't have that symbol?
I'm an old RPG II programmer and that's how my mind works.
There's probably an easier way. Maybe setting up a separate CONTACT list and only telling iTunes to sync that one.?

Once found how can I print them so that I can enter them one by one on a different phone?
 

A:iPhone Contacts and Messages

You are going about this the wrong way. You can sync or backup your contacts on gmail contacts. Open a gmail account (its free) then (with phone connected to your PC) go on iTunes under Info and select Sync Contacts with Google Contacts. Presto! Your contacts are now online. Then, you can sync your next smart phone to Google Contacts. You can do the same with Outlook, but that is not free, but if you do it this way, you can export your contacts out of Outlook and print them out as you wish.

Hello. I hope this is the correct forum.
 
Two questions about syncing an iPhone.
 
1. My iPhone 5 was at capacity so I deleted songs. I then backed it up to the iCloud. Now my iPhone 6 has larger capacity. How can I sync all songs in my iTunes library to the new iPhone? I assume there is a manual way of doing this and then the songs will sync to the iCloud in due course.
 
2. I've never known how to sync my calendar and contacts between my Outlook and my iPhone. How do I do this?

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I've had an Android for almost 2 years, and although I really love it I'm considering getting an iPhone when my contract ends (I have an iPod touch and just really starting liking some of the apps and user experience)

The only issue for me is I'm a heavy Google user: gmail, google calendar, google contacts, etc.

I love how right now I can add a contact or calendar event on my phone, and it immediately syncs to my Google account (or vice-versa syncs to my phone).

I did a bit of research so far on how this would work on an iPhone, and it seems there are apps but that you still need iTunes? Is that true? Or is there an app that will mimic the functionality I get on my Android?

I do plan to jailbreak it, if that helps any.

Hi,

Please note that this is not Windows Live (Hotmail) but the offline Windows application with that name. I find Windows Live Mail as a great way to manage my email, I want to manage my contacts there too. However, all my contacts are currently loaded on my iPhone (I have the contacts manually created on the phone a long time ago).

A:How to export iPhone contacts to Windows Live Mail?

If you want to directly export the contacts use a small application intended to run on your PC called CopyTrans Contacts.

1. Run the tool on your computer and connect your iPhone. You can download the program from here: export iPhone contacts

2. Once your iPhone contacts appear, drag and drop a selection to a folder on your PC

3. Select the type of contact files you wish your iPhone contacts to get exported in. Windows Live Mail recognizes Windows Contacts, so select that format


4. Your iPhone contacts will be saved to your PC. Now go to your Windows Live Mail application and import the contacts from the folder on your PC where you saved them in

Hi, sorry if this has already been asked, I had a quick look around and couldn't find it though.
My itunes (version 10) has decided it doesn't want me to download any podcasts. I find the ones I want and when I click on the Free/download button it looks like it pushes but doesn't do anything. I can play the pocast (streaming) on the computer but it doesn't download. I have even tried clicking on subscribe and that doesn't work anymore either, (it asks me to confirm I want to subscribe and that it will download the latest one but nothing happens) Please note that I can download podcasts through my iPhone so I don't think the problem has anything to do with the phone

Also, every time I connect my iPhone and click sync, it says it has detected software that was downloaded on the phone and do I want to back it up to the computer. It proceeds to do this (according to the status bar) but then the very next time I connect it says the same thing and proceeds to back up the same apps again.

What the heck is going on??

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

Last April my computer crashed and after it was up again someone stole my iPhone. I have been in the process of finding my music which was stored on my D: drive under "MP3's" After the crash and rebuilding, the D: became the J: I was able to save most of the C:\Documents and Settings\User\ files and that probably confused iTunes and the reinstalled iTunes didn't like that since most of my playlists had been created with the D: drive.
To make a long story shorter I have been able to find and add most of my music to my library, but there are a bunch of duplicates and a large bunch of files with sort of an exclamation point in the column b4 the title which seems to indicate that iTunes can't find those tunes but the same song is next to the unfound one's and it is recognized. I have tried sorting the columns by title, by artist, etc. but can nor sort by the exclamation point so that all of the bad tunes would appear next to each other and would make it easy to delete them. My only choice now is to hold down the CTRL key, scroll, and click on the bad file, and find the next one and click on it and after my finger and eyes are tired I right click and delete a bunch of them and then keep going. How else can I get the bad tunes out of my library?

Sorry about the cryptic title. I'm not sure weather this should be under phones or software but given it's phone related I thought I'd start in here.

Let me start by saying I do understand this sites policies and I'm not asking for help in illegal activities just trying to find some software that will backup and sync my iPhone, lock, stock, and barrel without using iTunes.

I've got a rather large dislike of iTunes thanks to it's rather useless format compatibleness and I'd say the same for the iPhone as well. But well the iPhone 4 was a gift so I have to figure out work arounds now.

Ok I found CopyTrans Manager and have been liking being able to use it to sync my music however using it means iTunes freaks out and tells me I have to do a restore. You can see why I don't like iTunes. Then because I figured out very fast that converting all of music to MP3's was going to take sometime. I jailbroke it in the knowledge that there was supposed to be alternative to the iPod player that read nearly any file I could throw at it. Did that and then discovered I hadn't dug far enough to find out that it's not operational on the iOS4. To compound the matter I'm having troubles activating my SIM which I'm partially attributing to the jailbreak so I want to restore it. However I want to backup all of my stuff in case I decide to go back at sometime in the future.

sure where would you like to start. itunes 9.01 crashes in abt 1/3 of users. uninstalling doesnt work. re-installing doesnt help. Only thing that seems to help is to re-install older version of itunes. 9.01 also has problems sync'ing.

Win-8 Install was a breeze until ? Apple. iTunes ver 10.7 and 11.2 when trying to sync Outlook simply run processor to 98% and sit there with disnoted.exe, Outlook sync and one other apple program I can?t identify sucking up all of that 98%. No syncing of Outlook calendar or Outlook contacts happens. It just sits in this loop for as long as you let it. I let it run 2 hours once just to be sure the first ?sync? wasn?t the particular issue. iTunes will backup the iPhone and the apps. Just not Outlook

I tried installing in Win-7 and XP-SP3 compatibility. Same problem as described above.

11.2 will work on Win-7 on another Toshiba Tecra of the same age, but it occasionally locks the machine. (BRS reset to get it back.)

Naturally it works on XP and has for months.

Other than iTunes, all other programs, including 16 bit legacy, which I need, ran fine and had no issues with Win-8 GUI. In about 1 hours I knew it fine. Don?t know what the hubbub is about with some about the GUI.

Any rumors of a fix for this iTunes issue?

Thanks

Hi, I have iTunes 9.0, recently updated and uninstalled the old version and re-installed 9.0 and updated iPhone firmware to 3.1 and everything is new and sweet, except itunes takes its sweet time to boot up and iphone connection freezes it for a few minutes while it establishes itself in the left bar of iTunes, now, that is a slight problem if I just want to sync one song and that song transfers in like 3 seconds, whereas the connection takes 5 minutes, so its a long time. Along with any suggestions on this issue, does anybody know how I can access the photo files on my iPhone? like the photo's I've taken myself.. I've found several programs to do so but they all cost around $20 and this seems a waste..

Any help, suggestions and replies are much appreciated,
Sam

anyone else have this happening? what is the solution to get itunes to recognize the phone in win8?

A:iphone 4s not showing up in itunes

Hi, geb724! Welcome to the Eight Forums!

Have a look here:

http://www.eightforums.com/hardware-...ghlight=itunes

It's been discussed in a few threads - there may or may not be a solution presented as I haven't read through them

All I know is my iPhone isn't recognized in Win8 8102 DP so I just boot back into Win7 to sync.

Once the Win8 Beta hits, I'll explore it more in depth.

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I was excited with my purchased of the iPhone
and to my disappointment it does not work with Vista 64bit. I tried over and over, tried it in compatibility mode, disabled visuals nothing. So I called apple support and after speak to 3 different techs found out that Apple is not currently supporting ANY 64 bit os ( XP or Vista). So now I have my iPhone and can;t use it with my main PC. I know have to transfer any files I wish to use to my laptop and then sync the iphone from there. Argggghhh!!!

DAM YOU APPLE!

Just an FYI in case anyone didn't know or has had the same problem.
You can also do a search on Google. There are a few articles about this. (found them after the fact)

I have just upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 64.

I though Brilliant as it i can have itunes on it and it will work with my iphone sync.

Ok it sort of does apps work fiune abut when i want to transfer movies and music it doesnt work.

Before I start i do not sync my musi, i choose what goes on as I have more than 8gb of music.

The first way I tried was simply selecting the songs and dragging them on to the iphone. It seems to work out fine but then it says that The iphone has lost sync and stops copying.

I then tried

Creating a single playlist with what i want on my iphone and making sure the iphone nly uploaded that playlist. Same thing happens, it loses sync.

It only uploads about 4% of the music which is 3.4gb worth,( I have 6gbs free on my iphone)

FINALLY

When these rrors occur my CPU usage goes up to 100% and it means my computer is un bearably slow and its a struggle to shut it down.

This happens everytime, anyone got any ideas what the problem is?

p.s. its an Iphone 3g

My main phone is Android, but I've got an iPhone 3GS that I use for music and a few apps. However, iTunes is hopeless and can't find half of the music on my PC.

What is the best way to manage music (and apps?) on an iPhone without iTunes?

My computer is 1 week old.  I have already spent 20 hours with various techs and apple support to get it up and running.  I spent 3 hours on the phone with HP only to be told I have to pay if I want my new computer to work!  I followed all your steps listed to get my itunes to recognize my phone, but when I searched for drivers, it went to my name and said they were up to date, but itunes still doesn't recognize my phone.  I was told by an HP sales person to go to HP and download the software media driver, but all that did was to install a new photo program I didn't want!!!  How do I get itunes to recognize my phone???  I am getting ready to return this computer!!!!!!!!!!!

Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post serial numbers and case details.If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, this post has instructions.

Whenever I plug in my new iPhone to iTunes, iTunes freezes up and doesn't let me click anything, play any music, or work with my iPhone at all. It simply freezes up. However, the rest of my computer is working fine. Also, my iPhone used to work fine with iTunes (earlier today when I did the initial firmware update) however now it seems to have stopped working

I'm hoping someone out there knows what to do! I still have a lot of stuff to put onto my iPhone.

Hello,

I have at the moment 2 new Z50 A-18M (Windows 7 Pro x64) in my company.

There is a problem with the last iTunes (12.3) : when users connect their iPhone, they are detected but not recognized by iTunes.

One user iPhone was in iOS 7.2 and the only workaround I found is to use iTunes 11.4.

But I have no solution for the other iPhone user which iOS must be above iOS 7.2 because iTunes claims for update...

Works fine with an old Dell Vostro 3750 (Windows 7 Pro x64).

???

Do you have the Itune app installed on your laptop as to sync your music from Apple Itunes this program must be installed, if you do have it installed then open that program and using your Apple usb cable connect your iphone and and sync your music using the Itune app and then do the same with your shuffle device.If you don`t have it installed then download it from apple and open the program and authorize your laptop with the app and your Apple account then plug your devices back in, then using the app sync your device with the apple app and your programs and music should be there.

OK. I have Windows Vista. I have ITunes. My son's Iphone, when plugged in, does show as a device. However, after 30 seconds or so, I always get this error:
We could not complete your ITunes Store request. The network connection timed out. Make sure your network setups are correct and your network connection is active then try again.

Well ... I certainly have a network connection, so I doubt that's the problem. What now?
