I have apparently wiped out my iPhone 4 contacts list, my apps, and my photos, etc. by syncing with iTunes.  Is there any way to restore what I had?

I have apparently wiped out my iPhone 4 contacts list, my apps, and my photos when I synced with iTunes.  Maybe I clicked the wrong button, but I just wanted to download the photos from my phone to my computer.  Is there any way to restore my previous information?

Did you sync to itunes from a different computer than the one you normally sync to?
syncing to itunes doesn't just wipe out all your data.
If you have a backup of your phone you can restore to that backup.

  • HT1478 I found my old iPod that I haven't used since about 2010, and I no longer have the computer that the library was synced with. Is there any way to get my music off of it so that I can put it on my new iPod?

    I found my old iPod that I haven't used since about 2010, and I no longer have the computer that the library was synced with. Is there any way to get my music off of it so that I can put it on my new iPod? The old one is a 30 GB from 2005.

    CS2 is very old and reached its "end of life" a while back.  So probably won't run on modern operating systems.  If you can still run it, you'll need to uninstall what you have and re-install with the download link below to activate it.

  • Hi, recently my Iphone 4S having wifi problem. I have try to restore it and accidentally get everything clear off. I have also notice that my phone is not USB recognized by my laptop before my wifi gone. Is there any ways to restore my contact?

    Hi,
    My Iphone 4S having wifi problem. I also noticed that the USB is not longer recongnized by my laptop anymore.
    I tried to upgrade my IOS6 into 7 hopefully it work...
    Somehow, all data (contacts, sms, photo and etc) were gone after I did that.
    Since my USB and wifi is not function, is there anyway to retrieve my lost contacts?
    For Icloud, is the data retrieve via the phone sim? Phone mac ID? Apple ID? or everything?

    Did you backup your iPhone 4S before to upgrade? If you did, you may recover your contacts from it.

    Or you should use an iPhone recovery software to get your lost contacts back. Please follow the blog's tips to have a try.
    For iCloud, it does not retrieve the phone sim data. It can only restore your backup data. And, if you want to find your Apple ID, you should read this:

    I have an iphone and my daughter has an ipod.  She has all my contacts showing up on her ipod.  I deleted them and now they are gone from both.  is there any way of retreiving this deleted information.

    When you share an iCloud account, any data you sync with the account is merged, and any actions you take on one device (such as deleteing contacts) is synced to all other devices sharing the account.  To avoid this, each person's device(s) should have a separate iCloud account with a separate ID.  (You can continue to share your iTunes account; it does not need to have the same ID as the one used for iCloud.)
    To create separate icloud accounts, decide which iPhone will be keeping the current iCloud account.  On the one that will be changing accounts, go to Settings>iCloud, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Account.  (This will only delete the account from this phone, not from iCloud.  The phone that will be keeping the account will not be effected by this.)  When prompted about what to do with the iCloud data, be sure to select Keep On My iPhone.  Next, set up a new iCloud account using a different Apple ID (if you don't have one, tap Get a Free Apple ID at the bottom).  Then turn iCloud data syncing for contacts, etc. back to On, and when prompted about merging with iCloud, choose Merge.  This will upload the data to the new account.
    Finally, to un-merge the data you will then have to go to icloud.com on your computer and sign into each iCloud account separately and manually delete the data you don't want (such as deleting the other person's contacts from your account, and vice versa).
    As for recovering the deleted contacts, you can try restoring her phone from her most recent backup.  This may recover the contacts, however it often doesn't.  Restoring to an iCloud backup has to be done in the initial setup process.  If she have any data on your phone now that is not in the backup that she wants to save she will need to do that first.  Then go to Settings>General>Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings.  You will then go through the setup screens as you did when the phone was new. When given the option, choose Restore from iCloud Backup.  Be sure you are connected to wifi and your charger as this will take some time to finish.

  • I have forgotten my restrictions passcode and i dont want to lose any media on my iphone, or any apps, i am scared to back up my media for restore in future as these photos and videos mean a great deal to me, is there any way i could get around it? Thanks

    I have forgotten my restrictions passcode and i dont want to lose any media on my iphone, or any apps, i am scared to back up my media for restore in future as these photos and videos mean a great deal to me, is there any way i could get around it? Thankyou if you can help; oh and last time i restored my iphone it didnt restore ALL the media only some and very improtant photos went missing :(

    All media and apps on the device should already be in iTunes on the computer.
    If you have forgotten the restrictions passcode, the ONLY option is to restore as new.
    Then sync back any media, apps, contacts, etc back to the device.
    You can not restore from backup as the restrictions passcode is included in the backup.

  • Hi. I just got the iPhone 6, plugged into itunes and made the mistake of putting an OLD back up on my new phone resulting in losing all contacts after 2013. They are not saved on the cloud. Is there any way to go back to before I screwed up?

    If you have performed a sync with the device since you restored this old backup, then don't bother looking for another backup. iTunes writes over the last backup each time you sync. If you were handling contacts in iCloud, you would find them by logging into iCloud. Or you can check settings and iCloud and see if the button it on for Contacts. Otherwise it might have been on the computer, if you had a program that syncs with iTunes and handles contacts, depending on the computer system you use. If Windows, it would be Windows Contacts or Outlook. If a Mac, there is a Mac Address book as well.

  • I have to restore my iphone 4s becasue it is saying "disabled connect to itunes" and it's never been synced with itunes. However the sleep/wake button is broken on the phone is there still away to restore without using it?

    You can try, but the problem with that is you need battery power in order to restore. Once your phone has enough power to restore, it will still show the same message. To get the phone into either recovery mode or DFU mode requires the ability to first turn the phone off. But, you've got nothing to lose, so you might as well give it a shot.

    My iPhone 5s is stolen and I want to restore iPhone photos from iCloud. I have use iCloud to backup the iPhone photos. Is there any way to restore my photos from iCloud to mac?

    The backup of your iPod Touch would include your camera roll photos.  Restoring the backup to another iPod Touch or iPhone would recover them.  Photos will not be restored by restoring the backup to an iPad.
    Note: Apple deletes iCloud backups after 180 days of inactivity so be sure to do this before then.

  • When using two iPhones (iOS 5) on the same computer/iTunes Is there any way to choose which songs, contact info., etc. are sync'd to each device?

    When using two iPhones (iOS 5) on the same computer/iTunes Is there any way to choose which songs, contact info., etc. are sync'd to each device?

    For each iPhone...
    From the Summary tab select:  Sync only checked songs and videos.
    Under Options in the Summary tab select:  Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi
    If you want you can select: Manually manage music and videos.
    Select the music you want synced from your iTunes library, same with Contacts.

  • All of my contacts were deleted for no reason. Is there any way to restore them?

    I powered down my iPhone 4S because an app was bugging out. When I powered it back up, all of my contacts had been deleted. When I tried to see my contact list it told me there were "No Contacts" on this phone. In the "messages" app, each conversation is now paired with a phone-number and not each contact's name.
    I did not have my contacts sync'd to my iTunes, or iCloud, or any other storage system.
    Interestingly, when I do a "left-swipe search", and type in a contact's name e.g. Joe Smith, my phone is able to show me which text-message conversations were with Joe Smith, and other information about this contact. But that's the only memory my phone has of its lost contacts.
    Is there any way to restore lost contacts without external storage / syncing ??
    Thanks

    I think those contacts still in iphone database. So you can back up you iphone with itunes to get iphone database off your iphone. Then access the SQLite batabse.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766
    All data included with the backup is stored in a SQLite database format with the data within various folders not easily accessible.There are some 3rd party utilities that provide for extracting select data from an iPhone's backup and iphone database such as this one.
