I got a new iPhone 5 and my itunes music will not sync properly. it will show up on the phone but it is light gray wording and they are not selected only a few songs work. The grayed out music just takes up space. Someone please help.

My itunes music is grayed out and unplayable on my new iphone 5. only a few songs work and the rest just take up space. They will play correctly in my itunes on the computer but not the phone. Please help.

I am so relieved to hear that I am not the only one experiencing this! However, I am sorry to hear you are going through this as well. Lucky for me I am upgrading to a 5s which will be sent to me on Wednesday. I did stumble upon an article with tips on how to downgrade back to iOS 7, but I am EXTREMELY apprehensive about doing that myself. Here's the article link if you want to give it a go:

  • HT5824 My iPad has been stolen. I need the serial number to report it to the authorities. I dont have the box it came in or the receipt and its not on my itunes on the computer because I didnt use it or music, just pictures. Can someone please help???

    My iPad has been stolen. Someone broke into my house on Tuesday. I have already tried locking it through icloud.  I have reported this to the authorities but they cannot do much unless I give them the serial number to the iPad. With the serial number they can put it into a database and send that inormation to pawn shops, so i the theie tries to pawn it, the pawn shop employeee can convscate the iPad and hand it over to the authorites. I need the serial number to report it to the authorities. I dont have the box it came in or the receipt and its not on my itunes on the computer because I didnt use it or music, just pictures.

  • HT4623 I just got my new iPhone 4 and wish to use my hands-free in my 2006 Prius.  How do I set this up using the phone

    Well I just got a new iPhone 4 and wish to use my Toyota Prius Hands-Free capabilities with the new phone in my 2006 Prius.
    I tried setting up in the car but it says to enter pass key on the phone; which I can't figure out how to do as it gives me a key pad but
    the only button is the "Call" button???

    You must unlock your phone by entering its passcode (if any), then go to Settings/Bluetooth. In the car you must enable Pairing mode (check the manual for the car). When the two see each other you may have to enter a pairing passcode, but this should be displayed in the car. For most hands-free pairing the passcode will be "0000", but you should check the car's manual.

  • What a horrible way to treat customers. I was due for updates on my phones and thought I should maybe check some other prices but have been with Verizon for 20 yrs so ended up there. I got 2 new IPhones 5s and the wife couldn't decide what she wanted so s

    What a horrible way to treat customers. I was due for updates on my phones and thought I should maybe check some other prices but have been with Verizon for 20 yrs so ended up there. I got 2 new IPhones 5s and the wife couldn’t decide what she wanted so she stayed with old phone but this locked me into a new 2 yr contract . Within a wk one of the new iPhones started turning on and of like 10 –15 times a day. Wk 2 it turned off and would not turn on again . It was my sons who was in college at the time so we talked and he took it in to a Verizon store where he was told I need to come in since the account was in my name. He was away from home , Verizon could see on account it was his phone they said it was not abused, they could not even turn it on , they sold me the phone give him another phone maybe even a loaner till he gets another. So now I need to go to store and explain to 3 different people this is my phone and my son has it and I need a new one. what a waste of time after about 2 hrs and talking to different people and yes they said there were notes on his account from other person he had talked to from different store. So I finally walk out with a receipt in hand and being told I would have a new phone in a couple days. As I sat in my vehicle thinking this is stupid I looked at my receipt and noticed it said droid on it so back into Verizon I went. The salesman said that’s what your son has on his account. My son had activated a friends old phone so he has one since VERIZON REFUSED to give him one. Another hr 3 people and yes they can see he had a new iPhone and notes on it from other store. Sometimes sorry just doesn't do it. I was now late for a appointment . Now I walk out and have been told I will get a new iPhone in the mail in about 2 wk Yes 2 wks   again I bought it there just give me a new one and you send old one back. I will also get a new droid that I have to send back because they said they cant cancel it  . In about 3 days I get the Droid and sent it back Verizon mistake and a waste of my time . After waiting over 2 wks and not receiving a new iPhone back to Verizon I went . I am now bitter at Verizon after doing 20 yrs of business with them. 3 people 1 hr later I was told it got delivered to my post office . I got the tracking num called the post office and they say o yes that was the droid. Go back in to Verizon another hr of explaining I walk out being told I will get a new iPhone in a couple of days, We’ll see . Once again I got the phone in your store just give me a new one . Do you realize how much of my time you have wasted ? do you care? O what is Your Policy ? How many Billion did you make last year ? I am Locked into a new 2 yr contract . Why don’t you just release me ? After 20 yrs do you think I will ever renew my contract ?

    Simple process. If an iPhone go to the Apple Store and not Verizon
    the phone from Verizon will be a refurbished device and not new unless under the 14 day worry free guarantee
    good luck

  • HT4946 i got my new iPhone 5 and i connected it to my iTunes on mac and it ask me if i want to setup as new iPhone or restore backup and i restore back up but now i want to delete backup and set up as new iPhone, is the anyhow?

    i got my new iPhone 5 and i connected it to my iTunes on mac and it ask me if i want to setup as new iPhone or restore backup and i restore back up but now i want to delete backup and set up as new iPhone, is the anyhow?

    The iCloud backup includes most things except non-iTunes purchased but the iTunes backup does not include those either. For what iCloud includes see:

  • I have an old iphone 3 with all of my music on it. The laptop that had them stored in itunes has long since died. Ive got a new iphone 5 and Mac and would like to put the music onto the new iphone.

    I have an old iphone 3 that has all my music on it. The itunes library that had all the songs in it is on a laptop that died. Ive got a new iphone 5 and Mac and was wondering how i can transfer the music from the old phone to the new one??

    You can transfer the purchases you made on your old iPhone 3 by plugging it in to iTunes and doing File > Devices > Transfer Purchases from your IPhone to the iTunes on your computer.  This will get music you purchased in iTunes, apps, etc.  (e.g., movies).
    But for the rest you would need to restore a backup of your newly deceased computer.

    Check USB connections
    If there’s an issue with the USB port, cable, dock, or hub, or if the device becomes disconnected during restore, try troubleshooting the USB connection, then troubleshooting your security software.
    Common errors: 13, 14, 1600-1629, 1643-1650, 2000-2009, 4000, 4005, 4013, 4014, 4016, “invalid response”, and being prompted to restore again after a restore completes.
    To narrow down the issue, you can also change up your hardware:
    Use another USB cable.
    Plug your cable into a different USB port on your computer.
    Try a different dock connector (or no dock).
    Add (or remove) a USB hub between your device and computer.
    Connect your computer directly to your Internet source, with no routers, hubs, or switches.
    If you see your error after changing your USB connections, continue to the next section to troubleshoot your hardware.

  • HT4623 I just got a new iphone 5,and when I try to update my phone, and install the aps that I've already purchased onto it, it says I don't have permission to do so.

    I just got a new iphone 5,and when I try to update my phone, and install the aps that I've already purchased onto it, it says I don't have permission to do so.

    Contact your carrier & have them reset your Voicemail. Most carriers require such, so after they reset it, just set it up again.

  • HT1414 I just got a new iPhone 4 and I tried to download some songs from my itunes account and it bricked my phone so now my new phone is locked and I can't use it. What can I do to resolve this?

    I just got a new iPhone 4 and i tried to download some songs from my itunes account onto my phone and it bricked my phone! So I can't use my phone, it's locked. It shows a plug going into an adaptor frozen on my phone. How can I resolve this problem? I got my phone at Verizon yesterday so I went back to see if they could help me today and they didn't know anything about it at the Verizon store. Theyy said to try IMac store here in town...

    Ask the Verizon store to exchange your iPhone for a different iPhone 4.
    UPDATE - Sure, try ckuan's solution first.  Then use mine if that fails.

  • I got a new iPhone 5s and I am unable to connect to my home wifi (through Comcast/Xfinity).  I was able to with my 4s but not with my new 5s.

    I got a new iPhone 5s and I am unable to connect to my home wifi (through Comcast/Xfinity) network.  I was able to with my 4s with no problems but with my new 5s, I just get that a message that says "Unable to connect to network [network name]"  Thoughts on how to connect to the wifi network?  My laptop is connected and using the wifi just fine.

    I see the following instruction:
    Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings including:
    However when I get there I am offered a screen which states "Enter Passcode", and have no clue as to what this should be given I never had to set this in the first place.
    It expects 4 digit code, so any ideas?

    My wife just got a new iPhone 6 and took some great photos then I connected it to her computer and restored it to her iPhone 4 settings and lost her new photos. Is there a way to recover them?

    Sorry, unless she backup up the new phone before or is using iCloud to save the photos, the photos are gone.
