    When I try changing itunes so it wont open when my iPhone is plugged in it says my apps will be deleted. I cant sync my apps because my itunes account has been used already on too many computers. So how can I save my apps?

    Are you trying to sync stuff between two computers?

    Its doing this because you dont have the same applications on both computers. If one compuer doesnt have an application that the other one does then when you sync it thinks that your iphone shouldnt have that app so it deletes it.


    All you have to do is go to your apps folder for itunes

    C:\Users\USERNAME\Music\iTunes\Mobile Applications

    copy all the apps into the other computers itunes apps folder

    C:\Users\USERNAME2\Music\iTunes\Mobile Applications

    and then copy it directly onto there itunes, itunes will no longer delete your applications.

    I have used my iTunes account on too many computers and I think its only aloud to be synced on 5 computers. I re install my OS so many times and I always sync my account.

    Should I SSH the apps to another location, change the settings to not open itunes, then move them back? Would that work or will iTunes still notice I have apps installed or will the apps just not work after they have been moved?
