    Like the title says...

    From day one since I have had my iPhone 4, it has never performed a backup.

    Any ideas?

    Right click on the iPhone icon on the left pane in iTunes and select backup.

    Okay thanks! And everyone... It has NOT done backups... I know that it displays it in the upper box when it is backing up. So there. :cool:

    By default iTunes backs-up your iPhone every time you sync. So unless you turned the back-ups off it has been backing up, you just didn't notice.

    I right-clicked on the iPhone in the left pane and backup wasn't mentioned. And when I go to iTunes->Preferences->Devices it shows that there are no backups at all.
