Transfering data from iPhone back to iMac
Hi. My Mac's hard drive recently crashed and everything is wiped out. I have a new hard disk now.
My question is: How do I transfer data from my iPhone... back to my Mac? I would like to transfer data from my iCal, iTunes, iPhotos, SMS and contacts.
Would appreciate some advice. It's been a very frustrating experience. I don't want to screw up and end up deleting all my data from my iPhone instead.

For your iTunes, I recommend Senuti app. Well worth the $20.
iCal and Contacts - sync to Google and you'll have your calendar and contacts and never worry about this kind of thing again.
Photos - email them all to yourself. It might take you a while, but at least you'll have them.
I don't believe there is a way to save your SMS.

iPhoto will only see those photos on your camera roll.
Presumably this person has lots of photos on his iPhone that were on his old Mac. These photos can't be seen from iPhoto...or anything else. If you don't want to lose them, you have to email them.
