I have updated iTunes and my touch. Now I can't update any of my apps. It says it can't authenticate my password and login. Anyone else having a problem today.

DS is having the same problem I am. I can only login through my apple account - not my AOL account. But my apple account doesn't recognize any of my apps.

They told me they are doing away with aol account logins. They had to move my aol account info over to an itunes account.

Question Want to update Husband's iphone/itunes but worried....

My husband has the orig. iPhone and has not updated/synced it in at least 1 1/2 years. That was when I synced it and proceeded to delete all of his contacts and notes, etc. - around 1/1/08. I had his itunes to automatically sync when his iPhone was connected. I think now they have added the Advanced section under the INFO tab, that asks you if you specifically want to replace information on this iPhone (contacts, calendars, bookmarks, notes and mail accounts). I don't recall this ever being there last year and that's why his iPhone contacts, notes etc. were deleted and replaced with what was on our computer - which was nothing!

Needless to say, I got the third and fourth degree and NO ONE has ever been allowed to touch his iPhone since then!

I think the iTunes program has added an additional feature that will prevent this from happening again, but I want to make sure (and double/triple sure!).

I told him that now he can email his Notes, and how he really should backup his iPhone because he will lose everything (notes, contacts, etc.) if something happens to his iPhone. He adds notes and contact information directly on his iPhone - he doesn't sync it with anything else - which makes is more important to have a backup. Plus the 3.0 software has some neat features which I'd love him to have. (I have the 3GS phone and sync mine everyday at work, so I always have a backup.)

My questions:

1. Will the Advanced section under the INFO tab on iTunes, prevent me from saving over all of this contacts and notes, etc. - as long as I don't check any of the boxes?

2. Under the SUMMARY tab in iTunes, I have the box checked "Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected". Since I can't see this screen to UNCHECK this box unless and until I connect the iPhone to the computer, can I override this on iTunes, Edit, Preferences, Devices - then check "Prevent iPods and iPhones from syncing automatically"???

I need the answer from the iPhone experts before I try to backup his iPhone and put all the newest, latest & greatest software updates on his phone. All contacts, notes, calendar events on his iPhone right now MUST remain on his iPhone or I'll be dead if I lose them with the sync!!!

I know several other iPhone users that do not sync or backup their phones on a regular basis - one of which is my boss. She will be bringing her laptop to work so that I can do the exact same procedure on her iPhone soon. So if I lose all of her information, I may be without a job, so I need only absolutely correct information before I proceed. I am very scared to do any iTunes work on anyone's phone, until I have all the facts!

thanks Friends!

This method will work, I just tested it. iTunes will see the device but will not initiate a sync unless told to so so otherwise.

WDW Park Hours

My favorite WDW app? WDW Park Hours
(My son programmed it and I'm a proud mom).
Others, not programmed by my son:
DVC Points. We love staying at the DVC - especially Boardwalk and it's great to have a quick way to calculate points.
I play 'falling gems' non stop - it's addictive.
I also like the location tracking apps too - there's one called 'take me to my car' that allows me to set a pin where I park and then map back to it later. I use that a lot at the mall and it would be handy at the WDW parking lot!

Not via USB but it's possible OTA (over the air). Take a look at

Stupid question...

I just got my iPhone (literally yesterday). I love it already, but I have a stupid question. Where do I find ring tones for it? Like ones to download, not what's already on there.

Thanks!
