    I just traded some random guy my MT4G for his iPhone 3GS. The question I have for you is he had it jailbroken already and I have made a bunch of mods but cannot access iTunes for my music. I understand that when I restore the phone, I will lose jailbreak and since I did not do this (nor am I very knowledgeable on how) I am learning all I can. What info can I find for you all to figure out how I need to go about getting my music and getting everything set back up the way it is now. Here is what I do know:

    Running Version 4.3.3
    Winterboard
    Cydia
    Installous

    I do not know what it has been jailbroken with but I am willing to learn.

    Jailbreak doesn't affect music synching. Just make sure you have the most up to date train of iTunes

    So, because it has to restore it, I wont lose anything? It tells me that my iPhone has been synced with another iTunes library.

    I wouldn't restore because you will lose your untethered jailbreak. Just ignore the message and sync with your iTunes library

    The only reason that I can think of for you getting this message is if you are trying to sync your iPhone to another computer.

    Yes. I got the iPhone from another guy. We traded. He had his own PC.

    You can try clicking on the red X. If you proceed you will wipe all data and music from your iPhone. Are you using a new computer? Or is it the same one you have always synced with?

    Maybe you didn't read my original post or maybe I wasn't clear enough. This phone was NOT wiped when I got it. I have not wiped it and it has never been synced on my PC except for pictures which went over fine. Adding music gave me the warning. It has never been synced on my PC.

    Were the things on your iPhone purchased under his iTunes account or yours? If it was under his, I don't believe you can transfer these items to your computer as you didn't purchase them. If you did purchase them, all you need to do is authorize your computer to sync your iPhone to it.

    Pictures are non purchased item, so they will always transfer to any computer without a problem. It's the purchased items that become the issue. See my posted questions above.

    Alright, I know I am new to all of this but seriously??? You are asking me questions that have nothing to do with my question. I know you may be an expert here by your post count but please use some common sense and read my original post. I just want to get my music onto my iPhone. I deleted his iTunes account and entered my own. I have music on my PC that was not purchased on iTunes. There is nothing on my iPhone now that was his except that jailbreaking. I added all the pictures and the other stuff on there indicated by "Other" in the picture. I have a full hard drive of music as I am a DJ and want to start getting those tunes on my iPhone. I'm sorry if I was a bit brash but I have typed in the same things like 5 times.

    Unless the songs were purchased under another iTunes account. Not saying this is the case, but the feedback from the OP makes me think that the content was already on the iPhone when he got it...

    Will clicking erase restore my phone or will it just erase any music (which is none) and allow me to put mine on there?

    OK, I understand why you were asking those questions. My apologies. There was no music at all.

    Well, still waiting for the answer...LOL. And you are welcome. I am just a little frustrated. Is erasing and restoring completely different?

    No, erase and restore are two separate things. Set iTunes to manual sync and no, it wouldn't remove your jailbreak. Just don't hit restore, as this will wipe your iPhone and resets it to factory defaults as well as updates you iOS to the current version, 4.3.5. Sorry if I'm getting back to you late but I am trying to correct my kids homework and post at the same time, lol.

    if "manually manage music" is checked it won't let you. if you want to check "sync only checked songs", just uncheck "manually manage music"
