    Default Set up your iPhone? WT*
    I took my iphone with me today and when I get home and plug it in to iTuns its asking me to setup like it is anew phone! I don't want to have to reset this all up! If I choose new phone it will erase everything. Does anyone know how to get past this?

    Thank you

    Try this: open up Cydia and install anything (a bogus app). Then once the installation is done, press the home button. Plug your phone in and let itunes detect it. I'm not sure it will work but that's what I did with mine and when I plugged it back in, everthing was fine.

    choosing "setting your phone up as new" will not erase the content that's current on your phone, but will help you get past this screen the next time you connect to itunes
