    The Apps will transfer from your iPhone to iTunes. And if they're not on the Device, you can re-download them since they are link to your account. Make sure to not lose that Username or Password!

    Your music will fail unless you have PhoneView.

    you should regularly back up your itunes library. to do this, in itunes click file - back up to disc and follow the instructions. do itz now! especially if you have lots of paid apps.

    Don't backup to discs, just have it on your iPod/iPhone and "get" PhoneView.
