Hold down the power and the home button until the phone reboots to show the itunes logo.

Uninstall itunes, uninstall apple mobile device support. Reinstall iTunes and plug the phone back in to update once more.

Okay, I thought of fixing itunes problem. You can use icloud to do that.

Begin by going to Settings -> iCloud, then scroll down and tap on "Backup." At the bottom, you'll see the date of your last iCloud backup, as well as the option to "Back Up Now."

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
