    Hi there,

    I've searched all over the web, and I can't find the solution.
    I got a new MBP, and now I want to sync my iPhone with my iTunes. Problem is that when I press sync, it wants to delete everything from my iPhone and sync it with the empty iTunes!

    I right clicked on the iPhone logo in iTunes and pressed transfer purchases; it brought all my apps into iTunes. I also got Pod to Mac, and transferred all my videos and photos.

    But I still can't sync back all my messages and my email client info! How do I sync those back as well?

    Do you still have access to the old mac?

    If you do try this, Sync the phone with the old mac and then use the Migration assistant on the new mac to move that account to the new mac and then try plugging the phone into the new mac.
