    about 8 months old. they told me they only have 90 day phone assistence. he did however get the phone out of recovery mode for me. i was able to do the backup but why would it install some of my apps and some of my wifes?

    oh crap, my mistake, i thought phone assistance was a year too...(it should be a year for how pricey these phones are)

    no idea. i'm not good with multiple itunes accounts. i hope you figure it out though, it sounds annoying. best of luck and happy new year.

    maybe just fix the settings (to what you want on your phone) and do a fresh sync.

    Do you have the 'automatically sync new apps' box ticked on the phones apps page in iTunes? I had the same problem at one stage and the issue was that all the new apps that had been transferred to iTunes from the phone, or synced via iCloud, would be automatically loaded onto the device when restoring regardless of which device they were purchased with.

    that could be why she had some of my apps but why would it miss about 18 of her apps. she had to go back and try to remember what she had.

    Did you 'transfer purchases' before you restored her phone?

    Sorry to drag up a one month old thread, but just realised I had not answered.
