Thread: Set up as new device in iTunes without restoring

    Question Set up as new device in iTunes without restoring
    Hello all. Is there a way to set up my phone as a new device in iTunes without restoring? I can't do a restore but I want to set it up in iTunes as if it's never been plugged in there before. I tried deleting all backups, resetting sync history, I even went into Application Data/iTunes and completely deleted every folder in there. It still has all the info on my phone...any help?

    Thanks!

    I don't think so, you have to restore in order to setup as a new device.

    I just have to ask why? Why not restore and make it fresh again?

    I'd love to but I can't. All my restores end in either a 16xx or 29. Check my other thread for the explanation on that one...and as for this not being possible...that's dumb and it makes me sad
