Ive had my iphone for a year now.... Other then to listen to music I honestly do not understand how to work iTunes.. I didnt even know you could back up your phone data until iOS5 came out...

Im getting a new iPad and I would like to have SOME of the same apps on my iPad and maybe the songs.... Im not interested in the pics.... how can I set up the iPad to transfer only what I want? Also in future how do it make sure whatever isnt on each doesnt end up going on anyway? (I hope that makes sense).

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Albertan.

Make sure the option to automatically sync apps is not set. You can dig around in iTunes right now to find out where the various options are, so when you get your iPad you will be ready.

All of the apps that you have bought for your iPhone will be usable on your iPad, and as you have already paid for them, you don't need to pay again. Just click on your iPad in iTunes and then select the APPS tab. Check off the ones you want and then hit SYNC. That's pretty much it.

Give us a shout of you need anything else.

I had the same question. Been using iTunes for a couple of years but have pre ordered a new iPad. Thanks for the answers.
