    Been running the GM for the past week or so.

    Just updated iTunes, plugged the phone in and it's trying to setup the phone as new again.

    Seldom to say, after all the hassle I had keeping hold of my photos last time (Had to upload via phonedrive).... I do not want to restore whatsoever!)

    Why can't iTunes just be nice and let me use it?

    I plugged in my iOS7 GM iPhone 5 to my PC running iTunes 11.1 (64-bit) and its running fine. Odd that you're getting that prompt.

    This is infuriating. I really need to fix this because there is no way in hell I am uploading 8gb of photos and pics over WIFI again.

    I would rather ditch the phone and Apple, that's how dead set against it I am.

    I opted for an iPhone this time around for less hassle, not more grief.

    Work a 50+ hour week, got a house to clean,cook and a kid to look after ..... just can't be doing with it.


    Pheeew! Went into settings, deleted the old back up. Reboot, plugged phone back in and now it's all hunky dorey.
