Error backing up iPhone - trying to transfer contacts to new iPhone 4S

Q: Error backing up iPhone - trying to transfer contacts to new iPhone 4S

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'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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi all,

I've recently had a few issues with my laptop, and had to reformat it and have it repaired (Windows Vista OS). My iPhone 4 was synced with it before I had all the issues with it.

I have tried updating the OS and backing the apps up today but it won't upgrade the OS as it says the download is corrupted. I don't want to do a re-sync to the new build laptop as I don't want to lose everything. However I'm also aware that I need to back everything up, should something go wrong in the future.

Any ideas as to how I can re-sync it to the re-built laptop, without losing any information?

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.

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?

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

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.

After rebooting (logging back in the next day), the error came. I was able to log back into my admin account, go the this window and click "ok"... after logging back into my normal account, it worked; once.
I tried that trick again today with no luck.

I've switched to askign over here since this sounds more like a Windows 7 issue than an iTunes issue.

Note: I've tried "run as Admin" with the same results.

Ideas?

A:iTunes Unknown error (-53) when trying to sync iPhone

I get the same error, but it doesn't seem to affect how the iPhone syncs. I've still been able to upload and update my music, ringtones, etc. without any problems. I get that error and click "OK", it goes away and the iPhone continues to be sync'd..

Interesting problem, but unfortunately I have no insight.

I'm having a problem syncing songs from Itunes to my Iphone. I manually manage my music in Itunes and after I hit 'sync' or 'allow', it starts the transfer (i.e. 1 out of 758 songs) but then stops after the first or second song. It gives the message "Itunes could not copy 'song' to the Iphone because an unknown error occurred (-50)". I transferred a bunch of music from a friends pc a couple months ago and began experiencing this problem after that.

I have the Iphone 3G, Windows 7, Itunes 9.

Thanks in advance!!

A:Itunes to Iphone problem - Unknown Error (-50)

I am also having great trouble with my iPhone 3Gs and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

About 99% of the time I get an error message.
"iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000065)."

Sometimes the number in parenthesis is different.

Strangely, on rare occasions I am able to sync and load music. The two times I have tried to update the iPhone software the process stops before completion. I have a paperweight until I make an appointment with the Apple Store, drive there, get them to do the update. Then I have to manually put in all my contacts and download apps over my wireless connection. Currently, I have no music on my iPhone as my computer will not connect to the iPhone.

I have iTunes version 9.2.1.4.

My system:
motherboard: Asus P7P55D EVO
CPU: i7-860
RAM: G.Skill Trident 4 x 2 GB DDR3 2000
Graphics: 2 x Ati 4890
PSU: Rosewill 1000w
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Just in the last week I can no longer view my Iphone 4 or my Kindle threw my computer in Windows 7 32 bit Professional. I have been a computer technician for 19 years and have tried everything I can find in Microsoft, Apple and Amazon. Amazon phone support could not even fix it. I receive the MTP USB error. I even formatted my harddrive, reinstalled windows and it still did the same thing with only Windows installed. I also installed Itunes to see if that would make a difference and I can see the phone in Itunes but not in my computer. It allows me to connect my Free Agent external just fine. Both the Iphone and Kindle work on my brother's 64 bit Windows Professional and my old xp machine as a camera, but at least I can get the pictures off that way. I have even purchased name brand USB cords for both products. I need to make them work in this system as this is the one I use for everything. Any help would be wonderful.

A:Windows 7: Driver for MTP USB failed error 31 for Iphone & Kindle

Locate the device in Device Manager.
> It will probably be listed under Portable or USB
> It will have a yellow icon
> If you right click->Properties on the General tab, Device Status should indicate code 31

Now look at the device Details tab. Use the pull down menu to carefully look and see if any Class upper filters or Class lower filters are listed. If you find any, copy/paste what's listed into next post
