I have the blues. My iPhone cannot be synced and is rejected in iTunes with the message:

"The iPhone "my iPhone name" cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (13019)."

Can someone here help me.



Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.5.7), 2G RAM

    Thanks Nathan,

    I had tried all of that before I decided to try 'restore.'

    Restore did the trick.

    Desperation wins out again.

    Thanks to all here,

    I have a similar problem. After having a lot of drama with backups freezing and not completing I had to click on the 'x' to procede with any sync's. Now that 3.0.1 came out I decided to update when the popup came up saying would you like to update.

    I went ahead, it downloaded the update then it couldn't install it and came up with errors. then my iPhone displayed the USB cable and the iTunes logo on the screen, now it won't do anything and iTunes won't recognise it.

    I've tried to reset it, and reset my computer but nothing works. I am not uninstalling iTunes and re-installing it to see if that works. I now have lost everything on my iPhone I presume.

    I am furious.

    Are you using a mac or PC? I had major issues with mine, had error messages, wouldn't sync, wouldn't turn on. Tried soft reset, no help. Tied uninstatlling itunes and re-installing, no help. Tried restore, got more error messages. Ended up taking it to the Apple store where they fixed it after 45 mins using restore. He said that the reason it wouldn't restore on mine was that I was using a PC and not a mac. "PC's cannot fix all errors" he said. Typical apple trying to get you to buy only their products:-/

    I would not want to be trying to deal with problems from a PC. It is bad enough to have issues already. Don't blame the guy for trying to help you switch to a Mac. That is not a bad thing. He was trying to do you a favor.

    "I've tried to reset"

    The key is "Restore"

    At least that worked for me. My iPhone is humming like a brand new baby this morning. Everything works beautifully with power to spare. I am very pleased.
