    Question Transfering data from iPhone back to iMac

    Hi. My Mac's hard drive recently crashed and everything is wiped out. I have a new hard disk now.
    My question is: How do I transfer data from my iPhone... back to my Mac? I would like to transfer data from my iCal, iTunes, iPhotos, SMS and contacts.
    Would appreciate some advice. It's been a very frustrating experience. I don't want to screw up and end up deleting all my data from my iPhone instead.

    This is what backups are for. Apple doesn't officially support what you are trying to do.
    However if you are jailbroken, you can retrieve the data you ask about - however much of it is not in a format that can be easily re-imported back into the OS X apps that you mention.

    Log-in in to your iTunes account on your new Mac and then sync as normal. You'll be asked if you want to copy stuff from your iPhone to Mac (which you probably want to do) and then you should be able to continue as normal. Remember to authorize your new Mac with your iTunes account as well.

    This ONLY works for content purchased directly on the iPhone (apps, music, tv episodes etc). It won't sync your contacts, photos etc back to your mac.

    As I explained before - go and search, these questions have been answered in existing threads.

    Hope it can do you a favor.
    when you sync a phone to a new computer, it won't erase your contacts, calendar, settings, etc unless you check the box in itunes to do so.
