They also have to subsidize Apple. ATT makes nothing, they say, when they sell it. ATT says it costs more then what they sell it for. They make their money with the data fees and plans....This is why they, ATT, also tell their employees not to buy them but to leave them for the "customers". Also as an employee, I get no discount on the purchase of the phone...
but all those emails from them will not stop me....

I have only 46 days to go until I can get one!!!

I finally updated my software on Sunday. Facebook had stopped working and the ipod wasn't working either. With those working again and the updates in the software, it feels like I have a whole new phone.

hard drive wiped out!

My hard drive cranked on me. I had to wipe it out and reset the computer. arggh.

SO I lost my itunes library (yes I tried to save my data and somehow I didn't use the external hard drive I had correctly and lost not only Itunes but also tons and tons of data. I am sick about it.

But I re-downloaded Itunes with now an empty library. I thought perhaps I could re-synch the iphone (and my old ipod which I still use now and then) to reload the library. Didn't do anything.

So I called Apple. The help desk person told me to right click on the iphone icon and transfer purchases. This worked up to a point. I knew it would not transfer anything else I had not purchased from Apple. I was ok with that BUT what is happening so far is that it is NOT downloading the many podcasts to which I subscribe.

Itunes is refreshing them on the computer but they are not getting into the iphone.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Are you sure you have podcasts set to sync and all the settings the way you want them? That probably all got reset when you started over again.

If that's not the issue and your podcasts are already checked to sync, you might try un-checking them, syncing, and then checking and syncing again.

right click on the iphone icon where? i'm going to have to do this with my ipod touch....all my music is sitting there, after the computer with the itunes library crashed....the hard drive was a total loss - nothing could be saved...

we use that one computer for all of us to sync music/video/podcasts to....
so once we get a new computer, i'll have to try to reinstate the library from my ipodtouch (since there's nothing on the phone -it's brand new)...

radio?

i apologize in advance if this is a really stupid question...

regarding the iPhone 3GS - which is what i have...
does it have a radio?

if not, is there any way to download a radio app that permits radio streaming?

again, i apoligize if this is the dumbest question of the century - i'm more than just a bit techno challenged..

thanks in advance!!

First answer, no.
Second answer, yes, there's probably lots but I have Wunderradio and it's pretty good

I didn't think you could transfer your iTunes library from an iPod/iPhone back to the computer. You can, however, transfer _purchases_ you've made on the iPod. When it is syncing with the computer, you will see "iPod" or whatever you have named it appear on the left hand side of iTunes. You can right-click on that and then "Transfer purchases." You will only see this when you are syncing.

BUT - if I understand correctly and your entire music library, not just songs purchased on the iPod, is on the iPod but _not_ on the computer, you need to be very, very careful. When you go to sync with a new computer/hard drive, the default will be for it to wipe out your iPod and replace it with whatever is on the new hard drive. Then you will lose everything and have no way to get it back.

You would think you could easily get all of your music off the iPod and back to the computer, but you can't. I have never faced this particular situation, but there are 3rd party solutions to deal with this problem.

I have heard good things about this program for this problem. It used to be called iPod Rip, but Apple recently made them change the name. It's now iRip.
http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/

Anyway, this software does exactly what you are talking about, which is lets you recover what's on your iPod.

I don't know if it does apps, but apps aren't as big of a deal. If you've purchased apps, you can download them again as many times as you want as long as you're using the same iTunes account. Unfortunately, music is not so simple.
