I have a ibook G4 which has become redundant as my phone will no longer work with the version of itunes installed (latest it can use), how can I back up my phone to transfer to a new computer (a PC now)?

My iphone 4s (7.1.1) will no longer work with my ibook G4 which is running 10.5.8. I have a PC which i'm now going to have to use, I've manually transferred my music and photos, but how do I go about transferring my contacts and calenders. What does itunes on PC sync to in terms of contacts and calenders?
Thanks!

iTunes 11 for Windows: Sync contacts, calendars, and other info with iPod, iPhone, or iPad
http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12317
You can use iTunes to sync the contacts, calendars, notes, Safari bookmarks, and email account information on your computer with your iPod, iPhone, or iPad. iTunes also syncs this information from your device to your computer—for example, if you add contacts on your iPad, syncing adds those contacts to Windows address book or Outlook Express on your computer.

  • Wifi is not available where I come from. I have broadband connection where data transmission is through cell sites then to USB modem connected to a computer. The modem draws power from the computer. Will this setup work with the ipad?

    Wifi is not available where I come from. I have broadband connection where data transmission is through cell sites then to USB modem connected to a computer. The modem draws power from the computer. Will this setup work with the ipad?

    iPad requires Wifi (or 3G /LTE) to connect to the Internet. You cannot connect a USB modem to the iPad.
    You can create your own WiFi hotspot through your computer for your iPad to connect to, if your computer supports this functionality. All Wifi Macs and many Wifi PCs do. Check your computer manual for how to do it.

    If the iPhone came from the US, then that is the only place where Apple will service it. If you can't take it there yourself, you would need to send the iPhone to someone you know in the US who could get it serviced and then send it back to you.
    Your only other option will be to find some unauthorized cellphone repair shop to attempt a repair, after which all further support from Apple, in the US or anywhere else, will no longer be available to you.

  • Why would you allow firefox to update computer web-browsers if you have an idea that it will no longer work after the update? And why would you not include instructions for, how to fix the problem? Help Please! Can I go back to the old one?

    Mozilla, like many other software companies, thoroughly test their software before releasing it to the public and I'm sure that no problem you are having is intentional.
    I do not work for Mozilla but I do have experience of releasing software for public usage.
    Firefox has no way of knowing what other software is already on your computer and with millions of combinations it isn't always possible to test for every scenario.
    You can go back to the old version of Firefox but that won't always solve your problem.
    The web site below tells you how:

  • My iMessage no longer works with the new is07 update how do I fix this

    My iMessage and some of my applications no longer work with the new software update. How do I fix this?

    I called Apple Support after trying many fixes suggested online. They directed me to the procedure on the following page:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4268?viewlocale=en_US
    I did the erase and restore option they suggested since I had tried a pile of ther things suggested on posts and blogs and they did not work. I even waited the obligatory 24 hours, thus the restore from backup option was what they suggested. I have a 64gig iPhone 4S and it took about 1.5 hours to complete the entire operation seeing that I am using about 54 gigs of that capacity.
    Warning: I lost all of my emails and all of the data files from one of my map programs so be sure you have everything that you really need from your phone store elsewhere before wiping your phone. I thought that the backup on my computer would restore everything but obviously NOT.
    Hope this helps.

  • Hello, I've updated the iPhone I have got I have a problem I hope you respond to some of the applications no longer work, such as the safari and skype and many applications are no longer working with the ios7.0.4

    Hello, I've updated the iPhone I have got I have a problem I hope you respond to some of the applications no longer work, such as the safari and skype and many applications are no longer working with the ios7.0.4

    Standard troubleshooting...
    1. Try a Restart by pressing the sleep/lock button until you see the slider.  Slide to power off.  Restart by pressing the sleep/lock button until you see the Apple logo.
    2. Try a Reset by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.
    3. Remove apps from Recently Used (multi-tasking) list...
    - From any Home Screen, double tap the home button to bring up the Recents List
    - Swipe up on the app preview card to remove it from the list
    - Press the home button when done.
    4. If still a problem restore with your backup.
    5. If still a problem restore as new, i.e. without your backup. See how it runs with nothing synced to it.
    6. If still a problem, it's likely a hardware issue.

  • My iPhone will no longer pick-up the wifi at home(comcast). My mom used to have comcast and I used to connect there as well, but she changed to verison and I connect there, but no longer can get the comcast wi-fi at home.  the wi-fi settings are ok there,

    My iPhone will no longer picks-up the wifi at home(comcast). My mom used to have comcast and I used to connect there as well, but she changed to verison and I connect there, but no longer can get the comcast wi-fi at home.  The wi-fi settings are ok there, but blank at home now.  The phone's network settings are fine because I can join other wifi networks.  I've done a reset with no results.  Is there a manual way for me to restore the comcast wifi from the router?

    First thanks for the reply and second sorry about the confusion.  I was unable to get the full message out, but here's the problem:
    Like I had mentioned, for a long time both me and my Mom had comcast and as soon as I came into both dwellings the phone would automatically jump onto either wifi network.  Then a while ago she verison and used the same Belkin router.  So there was no problem and my phone jumped on her system as usual, but at some point something happened and when I got home I noticed that the phone asked to be put on my system.  I would input the password, but it would say "unable to connect" to the network.  I did the standard things like check the network settings on the phone itself and they were fine.  Then I did a reset (actually twice) with the same result.  It seems like the phone ability to pick-up wi-fi is ok because when I go to my University I can log-in with no problem.  The only thing I noticed is when I look at the settings (on the iPhone) for the router at home the whole thing is blank.  My question is: Is there a manual way to get the phone to pick-up my router?  I need to have it on my network at home because I use DocumentsToGo a lot.  Thanks again for your response again and I hope things are clear now.  Have a great day.

  • I found out that I have some lost contacts on my iphone 5s, they dont appear when I search but if the contact calls me I see their name. How can I get those contacts to be on the list?

    I found out that I have some lost contacts on my iphone 5s, they dont appear when I search but if the contact calls me I see their name. How can I get those contacts to be on the list?

    You could check settings > mail contacts and calandars and see if there are any accounts (like icloud gmail yahoo) listed and if they have contacts on. Its possible if contacts were synced to one of these accounts that turning them back on will recover the missing contacts.

  • If i buy a new ipad and bring it to England will it still work with the different voltages and the 3G/4G?

    if i buy a new ipad and bring it to England will it still work with the different voltages and the 3G/4G?

    They both seem to cover the same 3G bands - from http://www.apple.com/ipad/specs/ :
    Wi-Fi + 4G for AT&T model: 4G LTE (700, 2100 MHz); UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    Wi-Fi + 4G for Verizon model: 4G LTE (700 MHz); CDMA EV-DO Rev. A (800, 1900 MHz);UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    CDMA isn't any use here as there aren't any UK CDMA based carriers, they are all GSM/sim card based (I'm not aware of any CDMA carriers in Europe). As the AT&T version appears to support an extra 4G LTE band then that might be the better one.
