OK, this may seem straight forward enough but I only use an iPhone on a casual basis so this eludes me...

iPhone A : Used everyday by a user, full of apps, emails, txts, pics etc - cant afford to lose them.
iPhone B : Was being used but now completely reset and upgraded to 4.0

I need to transfer everything from A to B.

Ive got Apples instructions printed out on how to do this but all that seems to happen is that A's photos are restored to B and thats it. No apps, messages etc.

Is this normal ? Am I misssing something ? Can this only be done on iPhone A's "home" PC which its usually synced to or can I do it on any PC with iTunes ?

I can backup to another PC but its only backing up the photos........


Any info appreciated :)

TIA

Do full backup of the iPhone A, then plug iPhone B and do restore from a backup.

Need to both be syncing on same computer. The computer that has all the apps and data for the iPhone you want to take everything off.

Do it on the "home" PC - you may have better results.

It should ask you if you want to mirror the other iPhone.

Handsome Dan is also still somewhat perplexed...

Hmm interesting, ITunes dosent have Sync enabled on all the tabs... so hence why it was syncing everything. Stupid thing.... anyway, all the apps are complaining that this computer isnt authorized etc, so told the user to take both phones home where thye backup, and try it there :)

Thanks all

Apple sync is a minefield. As I understand the apps are all associated with the iTunes account. The music/video/photos are all associated with the library file. So if you have purchased any music etc OTA this must be transfered to the library or you could potentially lose it in a sync. If you wish to you can run your apps on more than one device if if is syncing to the same iTunes account. Multiple devices can also share a library, but a device can only sync with one library. You press shift when opening iTunes to select a different library file.
A device can only be authorised on five machines.
I don't currently own a computer, so my iPhone is synced to a library on a portable drive.
If apple sync was simplified it would make the iPhone a wonderful standalone device, but as it is now, it's a nightmare.
