Im not intent on reposting this thread but I was not clear in the other one. This is exactly what Im experiencing. Ok I was having a few issues with my phone so I decided to restore it. I plug it in and click restore. It gives me the option to back it up, so I do. It goes through the whole restore process, then when its done I have a fresh iPhone with none of my apps or contacts on it. Ok,fine, so I plug it back in and a screen pops up in iTunes: "An iphone has previously been synced with this computer" and it gives me the choice to set up as a new phone, or restore from backup. So I click restore from back up, wait ANOTHER half hour while it "restores" (could have sworn I just did this?!) and finally it completes. So I unplug it again and now I have my contacts and call logs and everything is as if I never restored at all, so I think ok cool. Open up the ipod, no music is there. Why the **** not? So I plug the iPhone BACK in thinking I can just sync the music to get it back, BUT I get the same screen that says "Set up your iPhone" with the options to restore from backup. I JUST fvcking did this. Why am I not given the option to sync my music now?!!!
