We will have to backup your iphone, restore, then restore the backup. First backup your iPhone with iTunes. Connect your iPhone to computer. Open iTunes. Cancel any sync progress.

This will backup your iphone's data such as contacts, messages, photos, videos, apps, and more.

Once done, we click Restore button. This will restore your iPhone back to Factory Settings. If there is an update for your iphone, iTunes will download and update. It will take 30-60 minutes based on your internet connection.

After restored, activate your iphone. Then click Restore Backup button under Backups section. Select the Backup that we just did. Then your iPhone should be working normally.

If you need more help, please use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If you do not require further assistance, kindly rate my service. Thank you!

We have done everything suggested and still it does not work, we bought a different application to do the same task and it worked smoothly, so we have solve our problem, altough we could not make this application work

Thanks for your update.

This could be a problem with your iPhone and the iTunes software. In this case, iTunes is the problem as your other program worked.

If you still want to use iTunes, which I recommend to use, we can do a thorough uninstall and reinstall.

Let me know. Please rate my answer so I can get credit for my time.

Have a great weekend!

Nick
