    After I restored about 5 days ago, I kept wifi sync off and now only sync with cord. All seems ok. I will stick to this method until beta 6.

    Its a bug with wifi sync. I blame iTunes 10.5 b5. I don't remember having this issue with b4 (on Win 7 btw).

    I had it try and restore my phone every time i plugged into iTunes UNTIL I disabled wifi sync. I haven't had the issue since.

    I don't know what causes it, but disabling wifi sync seems to cure it.

    That's what I am thinking too. I didn't have any issues syncing beta 5 until I checked off wi-fi sync.

    Since 2 others confirmed my thinking, that appears to be the issue. Now others know how to avoid the problem.

    I've had Beta 5 installed since it came out without this issue, but today I checked iTunes and it's asking me to set up as a new device or restore. Tried everything I can think of (aside from actually doing one of those two things), and nothing fixes it. I can't turn off WIFI sync in iTunes because I can't get past the "set up as new device" screen. There's no way to turn off WIFI sync on the phone itself, but I tried just turning off WIFI itself and that didn't fix the problem.

    I can still back up to iCloud and I can force a manual sync by going into WIFI Sync on the phone. But in iTunes, it shows the "set up as new device" and I can't change anything.

    Since Beta 6 is coming out soon, I'm not going to restore or set up as a new device for now. But if anyone comes up with another solution for this problem, I'm all ears! ;-)
