09-26-2008, 05:50 AM #1iPhone won't sync at all....
Hi everybody, I just picked up a 2g iphone couple of days ago. I had itunes 8 already so i upgraded to 2.1 then jailbreak and unlocked using quickpwn 2.1. Now I have syncing problems. My itunes recognizes the phone but wont transfer over songs or vids or apps at all. Not sure what the problem is. i tried reinstalling itunes didnt work. i restored the iphone, didnt work. i did clean uninstall then reinstalled itunes(as if it was never installed before), didnt work. not sure what the problem is.
thanks for all your help in advance.

After you restore you're setting up the phone as a NEW phone correct? If not restore and use that option.

lol my thread was hijacked, anyways i solved my issue. turns out itunes uses some usb drivers that interferes with my hp printer for some reason. i just unplugged my printer usb cable and my phone started to sync.

what is jailbreak, I just purchased a iPhone 3G.I have been using palm products for over 10 years. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to sync my palm desktop with my iphone. When I plug my iphone in, iTunes doesn't open automatically, and I am sure I was told it would. When I open it manually and it is the lastest version, it does recognize my iPhone. However it won't allow me to drop and drag music etc onto the iphone, as I do with my nano.It is saturday and the helpdesk is closed, any suggestions???
