    Restoring via iTunes sometimes might be problematic, and if you do encounter difficulties restoring from your backup or you simply want to extract only one piece of data and not to restore to the full backup then you certainly must look at the iPhone Backup Extractor if not already discovered:).

  2. Alice says:

    However, if you use iTunes, don’t you need to restore your iPhone to factory settings in order to ever restore your backed-up contacts?

    I am using a third-party program called CopyTrans Contacts to backup my iPhone contacts on a regular basis directly to my computer.

    Alice I used the same tool to export my old iPhone contacts and restore them to my new iPhone – found out about it here:

    http://www.everythingicafe.com/forum/threads/how-to-back-up-iphone-contacts-to-computer-without-itunes.88227/

    You are right that iTunes will restore your iPhone and delete its multimedia data during restore; as a result, I have been using copytrans Contacts to do the contact backup and transfer instead.

  4. Grahame says:

    Well I have an unlocked 3g 6 years old and managed to navigate through this set-up and add to my new iPhone 4s. I am amazed at how I got there and amazed that all data was transfered, even my alarm clock settings and screen saver!!

    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering

    or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

    I simply want to tell you that I am just beginner to blogs and absolutely liked this web blog. Most likely I’m want to bookmark your site . You certainly come with impressive well written articles. Bless you for sharing your web page.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  9. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  11. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  12. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

  13. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  15. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  16. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say great blog!
