    I just had to reformate my computer and reinstalled windows and I had to reinstall iTunes. Only the apps on my phone are showing up in itunes..any advice to get all my previous apps back and not lose my photos or music on my phone now?

    when I go to authorize my computer, it keeps popping up someone else's e-mail and password so I put mine in, but now it still hasn't transferred all of my apps over. It looks like it has transferred only my apps that are currently on my phone, but no others.

    If they are your apps you can download them again for free.

    Are you using YOUR computer? You do not want to be doing a sync with someone else's computer who owns a iPhone. That would make a MESS:eek:

    yes I am using my own computer. I was having a few problems with my computer and we had to reformat it and can't find the recover disc so I installed itunes again, and now itunes is only recognizing the apps already on my phone and not the ones that I have on my computer also but not using.

    did you authorize iTunes for your iTunes store account(s) following the reinstallation ?

    If you didn't back up your iTunes folder in Windows before formatting, any app that isn't on your phone is gone. You'll need to redownload the ones that aren't on your phone.
