My fiancee's iPhone 4 has stopped vibrating. We plan to go to the Apple Store but the thing is she has never done a backup. She's been using her iPhone completely untethered from iTunes.

Now, when I plug her phone into my Macbook, it gives me the option of setting up as new or restoring from MY backup.

Is there anyway I can either have iTunes make a backup of her phone onto my computer or better yet leave her info alone?

Thanks.

I had a similar issue with an iPad and after speaking to apple they told me that "setting it up as new" wont actually wipe the device. I took the punt and it worked.

Cheers, Brett

Thank god...


I "set up as new" and it didn't touch a thing. Thank God...I would've never heard the end of "...and all my pictures are gone! And texts! You said you knew what you were doing..." :rolleyes:


Thanks everyone.
