I have a problem, I synced my entire music library from iTunes to my iPhone, then my laptop died and I lost my whole iTunes account, along with all music that was on there. Not a biggy as it was all on my iPhone. But now I am stuck with all the music on my phone and none on iTunes.
If I do a sync now, it will wipe everything that I have on the phone?
Is it possible to sync everything from the phone, back onto iTunes?
Someone suggested uploading all music to iCloud, and then back to iTunes from there, but i have about 10.3 GB (is that a lot??) of music, so not really enough storage space on iCloud.
Any suggestions grateful!!

There are plenty of little software packages out there that can pull it off the phone for you and restore the metadata from the iPhone's database. I used CopyTrans last time I needed to do something like that.

There's a great free program for Windows called SharePod that will do it.
I've used it successfully :)
