    Hello everyone
    I've got myself into a bit of a pickle. When I got my iphone 3 or 4 months ago I was living with my girlfriend and didn't at that time have access to my own laptop. I synced it with hers without really thinking about. We have no broken up and moved apart, and i'm now in a situation where I need to be able to use my iphone with my own laptop, update some of the music on it etc. Can I do this without losing all my original stuff. Can I re-recover the apps that i've downloaded?
    Can anyone suggest anything?
    Many thanks

    Your apps and purchases will be ok. Music not purchased through iTunes will be removed.

    I had the same question. Is there a way to go into the file system and "pull out" the music, or an app that will let you? Thanks!

    For the apps, in iTunes right click on your iPhone's name on the left sidebar and press transfer purchases to transfer your apps to your new laptop.

    For the music you need a 3rd party program to pass it to your laptop. :cool:
