    I want to restore my phone but don't wanna manually pick all the songs to put back on it when I'm done. Can I easily put my music that's currently on my phone, after the restore?

    Why don't you back it up with the music you already have on your phone?

    Didn't you have to select the songs in iTunes by checking/unchecking the little box next to them? Won't those selections still be there in iTunes if you restore the phone, or are they device specific? I thought your options were to sync selected songs, playlists, etc. or to sync the whole music library.

    I'm a little confused, you manually manage your music but can't just put it all back on the phone? You can also create a playlist of all your music on the phone, export it, import it back into iTunes, then just drag that over after you've restored the phone.

    Rip it up
    Skype down
    Rip it up
    email it down to the ground
    Rip it up
    Siri's down
    Rip it up
    And get your music not the words.
