    So, I came home from work the other day to find my house burglarized. They took my iMac that I synced my iPhone to. I lost a bunch of music files (Garageband stuff) that I have copies of on my iPhone as MP3's, but were more recent than my last backup. (as well as some ringtones that I made) I now have a replacement iMac, and got my phone to Sync just my calendar and contacts, but I'd like to get my music off my phone before I sync that.

    So how do I get content off my phone that is linked to a library on a computer that I don't have anymore? I remember a longtime ago I used a program called escapepod to do a similar thing on an iPod. Does something like that exist on the iPhone?

    BTW: iPhone 1.1.4 non-jailbroken iMac 10.5

    Thanks.

    If you jailbreak the iPhone you can transfer all the songs via SSH from your iPhone to your Mac. That is what i did. The files in the iphone look like HGSW.m4a and FJEJ.m4a and so on. They are all 4 cap letters long.

    You don't even need to jailbreak. There's an app called Megaphone (used to be iPhonebrowser I think) that lets you transfer music, videos, podcasts, pictures, notes, sms conversations and probably more to and from your iphone. It used to have a 7 day trial and there are definitely serial #'s out there if that
    s your thing.

    Thank you! She worked like a champ, now I've got my lost songs back.

    Megaphone's interface is top notch.

    Glad you were able to get at your songs...getting robbed is a horrible feeling (that happened to me a couple years ago). Hopefully they can catch whoever did it (or at least recover your stuff).
