...because this 4S/iTunes combo is buggy!

For some reason, iTunes stopped being able to read the contents of my 4S. It would recognize the phone and then everything would disappear and an error message would pop up. After trying everything I could think of (soft resets, hard resets, reloading iTunes, etc...) I finally restored the iPhone from backup but it would just loop back into the restore from backup screen. Ultimately I had to restore as new.

Now here's the weird thing, all my data remained on the phone. Normally the full restore would wipe the phone and I would rebuild it.

Oh well. At least I have the phone back where it was. Just wish it hadn't taken 3 hours to do it!
