I have a new laptop and have just installed iTunes. I went to sync my iPhone but there are no songs on iTunes on my computer and no apps either etc. I clicked "sync apps" but it then said all apps on my phone would be replaced by the apps on the computer (which is none!)

So how do i get the apps/ringtones etc etc onto my laptop from my iPhone?

thanks in advance

Every time you sync, it automatically creates a backup first. At least, that's my understanding of how iTunes works. I just sync'd my phone and it backed up before it started the syncing process.

Are you on windows or mac? For the apps, you could "Authorize" the laptop first then transfer purchases. As for the songs, there are 3rd party software out there that copies your media off your phone to iTunes. It's a bit like synching backwards...
