I got a new iphone 5 today. Went through the setup process in itunes, no problem. I restored from backup and the phone rebooted. When it came back up, iTunes asks me to set up my phone. Hmm, what the heck I'll do it again. Well, the next time iTunes asks me to set up my phone. And so on and so forth .... How do I break out of this loop? ---------- Eh, still interested in knowing WTH was going on, but I just said screw it and installed from scratch. That seems to have done it. Shame that I lost all my other stuff though.
