How to sync my iphone 4 (which is synced on my laptop currently) with my home computer where I also sync my iPad 2 without losing the data on my iphone 4?

Hi there.  I have an iphone 4, which is currently synced with itunes on my laptop.  I also have an ipad 2 which is currently synced with a more powerful and storage capable home computer.  I would like to know if there is a way to sync my iphone 4 with my home computer, without losing my messages, apps, and other info.  I am using Windows 7 on both machines.  I don't know if there is a way to "merge" both itunes libraries for this?  Any help will be appreciated.

I synchronize my contacts and calendars across multiple computers (and iPhones) via iCloud, but all of the devices end up with the same versions.
I don't want our different mail accounts synchronized between computers, so I don't sync that with iCloud, but you can (I don't recommend it with your work computer).
You should be able to sync the music with iCloud.
Give it a try and see if that works for you.

  • How can i transfer videos without losing the sound to my iPhone 3G?

    Hi
    I have bought my iPhone 3G yesterday. I have found out how to transfer music from iTunes however i can't transfer videos. I'm selecting the videos i want to transfer on the videos tab after i chose my iphone from the side menu and pressing apply. iTunes says that its syncing my iphone but it doesnt transfer the videos.
    Lately i have found out a function on the advanced menu for movies as "create iphone or ipod version". When i used that it transfered that video to my iPhone however the sound was completely lost besides that action takes too much time(around 10 mins for a 3 min video and i have a pretty strong computer).

    One thing I'd recommend is that you make sure the video/audio you're trying to transfer falls within the guidelines listed in the 'Video' section here:
    http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html
    What's most likely happening is that the file is not converted as such so when you try to transfer it, it's wanting to convert it but is unable to for any number of reasons.
    There's software out there that might make this easier for you but I can't recommend anything specifically.

  • My iphone 4s been stopped and gave message that im able to reopen it after 2 million minutes please help me if there is away to reopen it without losing the data

    you need to restore the phone on the computer to which it most recently synched.  This will remove the passcode but you will lose any data between the last backup and the current time.  Either that or sometime in the next 2 million minutes you remember your password.

  • HT1212 I downloaded the latest software on mini ipad. It now asks me for password which I never had before and I have tried various passwords only for ipad to be disabled. Is there any way to restart my ipad without losing my data especially  my photos

    I have a mini ipad and recently downloaded the latest os.I now can't access without a password which I didn't use before.My ipad has been disabled as I don't know what password to use.Is there any way I can enable my ipad with a new password without losing my info and data especially photos?

    You used the data.  Verizon can not see what it was sued for.  However your phone can see whats apps used the data.  go to settings-data usage- there will be a place that says data usage cycle.  line the dates up with your cycle.  then there will be a bar graph below that   extend bother white bars one all the way to the left and one all the way to the right.  after those are extended below that will be a list of apps,  there should be one that used over 2 gb and that will show you what app used that data in her purse

  • How can I set up an external harddrive with time machine that already has data on it without losing the data?

    I have an external hard drive that I use to hold photos and other files on that no longer fit on my macbook. I also use the external hard drive for back ups set up with time machine. I don't believe I ever did anything to partition it, I've just always had separate folders (Photos, Music, etc) with one being called "Back Ups" (or Backups.backupdb) that my time machine back ups would automatically go into. Recently, I made the switch from my HDD in my macbook to a new SSD of the same size. I used the back ups on the external hard drive to restore all my content, which all worked out fine. My problem now is in using my external hard drive. When I plug it in, it no longer seems to be working with time machine. Also, I was organizing some files within the external hard drive, and when I dragged one into a folder, it took a while to load. Before, it was instantaneous moving a file already on the external hard drive to another location within it. Can anyone help me in getting the external hard drive to work with my new SSD? I don't want to delete any of the folders or back ups that are already on it, since that's the only place I have some of those files. Please let me know if you need anymore details. Thanks! (sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum)

    First, she has to be logged in to the same iTunes account as she used on the old computer.
    Second, when she plugs the iPhone in to iTunes, right click on the phone name and select transfer purchases.
    Third, enter one contact and one calendar entry into the new computer's addressbook/calendar.
    After that, she should be fine.

    The above link will take you to the Adobe Product updates site. From there you should be able to find the appropriate download for the version of Lightroom you purchased.
    If you purchased the Photographers package subscription for Photoshop CC and Lightroom you would have to download through the Adobe Creative Cloud Application Manager.

  • A friend let me use her old ipad that was still synced to her account. I want to sync it to my account without losing the app progress, notes, and pictures. How do I do this and keep everything on the ipad?

    I want to sync an ipad to my iTunes account that used to be synced to another account without losing the data (i.e.- pictures, notes, app progress). Is this possible or will I lose everything once I sync it to my account?

    You can't. iDevices are one user devices.

  • How do I retrieve the my iCloud data off of my old, unusable iPhone without sacrificing the data off of my current iPhone?

    Firstly, I have 2 iCloud accounts, which creates constant confusion (considering I have a third "apple" acct. as well).  I have not found any solutions (even the genius bar has been unhelpful) for this, but my current major issue is with storage space:
    I have 2 iPads (first gen and a mini), and HAD 2 iPhones (4s and currently an iPhone5), plus one laptop:
    ACCESS the old iPhone data (the phone drowned last month) on iCloud, such as the photos, notes, etc.  This way I get my data (isn't that the point - backup??), and I also free up space to back up my current phone and ipad.
    I'm currently way over my max data limit (which is the maximum purchase, btw).
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated at this point . . !
    Cheers,
    DAH

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to recover data from an iCloud backup of another device without losing the data that is on your current device.  You could do this by backing up your current device as it is now, either to iCloud or to your computer using iTunes if you don't have space in your iCloud account to back up.  Then restore your device to the backup of your other device to recover the data.  Then save the recovered data to your computer (by, for example, importing the photos as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083, and emailing any recovered notes to yourself, etc.).  Then, when you're done saving the recovered data, restore your device back to the backup you made at the beginning, returning it to the state it was in when you started.
    Another option would be to sign into the iCloud account your other device was using on icloud.com and back up some of the data to your computer as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4910.  This would not, however, allow you to access your camera roll photos and other data that is not synced with iCloud.

  • How to reduce the column definition w/o losing the data in the columns?

    I need to reduce a particular column definition of a table from varchar2(10) to varchar2(4), but there is already existing data inside this column. The max length of data in this column is only 2 chars, which is less than the new column length.
    What commands/steps should I take to reduce the column definition successfully without losing the data in this column?

    Unfortunately, there is no one step solution.
    You can create a new table and insert into this table with the old table values
    e.g.
    Old_Table
    fld1 varchar2(10)
    New_Table
    fld1 varchar2(4)
    insert into new_Table (select * from Old_Table) ;

    bought a new macbook air because my old computer is formatted. I want to sync my iphone to my new mac, so I can save the data on my iphone without losing data. how can I do?

    You need to copy everything form your old computer, or your backup copy of your old computer to your new one.
    The iphone is not a storage/backup device.  it simply mirrors the selected content of the computer to which it is synced.

  • How do I sync an iphone to a new computer without losing the content

    My wife's iphone was originally synced to my old mac.  Now she wants me to add some music from a cd to her iphone and I can't figure out a way to do it without erasing what is already on there.  How can I add the additional tracks to her phone without losing the rest of her content?

    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer.
    Use your backup copy of your computer to put everything on the new one.
    The iphone is not a backup/storage device. It simply mirrors the selected content of the computer to which it is synced. Syncing to anophter computer will erase the current content and replace with content from the new computer.
