I need a solution to that problem myself. This is the 3rd time i restored my iPhone and lost all my contacts, you tube favs, calendar plans and such, because my iPhones main computer does not have an internet connection.
I know in this day and age you have to have an internet connection to keep things you have running correctly. But for reasons beyond comprehension I cannot have one put in. So I go use my sisters which doesn't have all of the same files synced to her iTunes (Really sucks to have your files spread throughout dif places).

What I really need is a way to restore my iPhone without an internet connection. I am a believer in the impossible becoming possible. Are there any believers out there?

I need some help with this.

I know Senuti is a free mac program that I've used to copy mp3's from my ipod to my macbook pro. I haven't tried it with the iPhone though.

That looks really good. It's a little unclear on the site whether or not you can use the software to transfer songs BETWEEN computers, though. If I have a song on my iPhone that my wife wants on her laptop (or my son on his), I wonder if this software will allow that? We now have an external drive where all our new music is kept, but all of us have music that has been downloaded in the past that we are having a hard time transfering...

Not sure what you mean... Where was the music downloaded in the past that you are having a hard time transferring, on your iPod's/iTunes and PC to PC?

This program is meant to rip your existing songs and playlists either to backup copies to a folder/HD/external HD on your PC or Mac or both in my case, or to transfer songs and playlists directly into iTunes, I did both!

It's extremely useful ;)

Fully Free? I haven't found one yet and i've searched. But for $20.00 there is one called phoneview (http://www.ecamm.com/mac/phoneview/) for Mac and another for PC & Mac called TouchCopy also for & 20.00 (http://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy/). They both work nicely and are life savers when exchanging comps or replacing hard drives. Sorry they are not free. They say the best things life are free. Unfortunately this is isn't one of them. lol Keep searching maybe you'll find something. Or get a friends serial or password. :cool: Peace & Good luck

I used a program called ipranks backup utility.....it is totally free and out of over 2.5gig of music I only had to fix the names of 6 songs

search google and you should find it

took me ages to find a fully free one that did a good job
