    Hi,

    I recently had a problem and lost all the information that was on the Hard Drive of my Dell PC Laptop.
    My iTunes sync, songs, applications, contacts... everything is gone.

    I just got a MacBook Pro and I want to backup my iPhone 3G to the iTunes on my new laptop. I have a bunch of applications, contacts, notes, etc on my phone and I don't want to lose any of them.

    Is there a way I can backup everything on my new iTunes without losing anything? (mainly the contacts and applications)

    I appreciate the help!
    Thanks in advance:)

    Plug it to itunes on the new computer.
    Then right click on the iphone listed on the left side of itunes and select transfer purchases.
    Then once its done right click on it again and select backup.
    Everything will transfer to your new library besides your music, videos and ringtones.
    Also you gotta make sure you authorize the computer to acess the same itunes login account you were using before.

    You can get the music, etc. transferred with 3rd party software.

    The last thing you SHOULD do is sync your iPhone. That way you'll have contacts in Address Book, notes in Mail, etc.

    True, if you dont have acess to your old music library you can transfer the songs out of your iphone thru 3rd party programs.
    Good catch Aggie. :)
