    I have an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0 software. My iPhone was synced with my old computer's iTunes library which i do not have anymore. When i plug my iPhone into my new computer iTunes says "iTunes cannot read the contents of the iPhone "Rob's iPhone". Go to the Summary tab in iPhone preferences and click Restore to restore this iPhone to factory settings." I have transfered all of my contacts and music from my old computer to my new computer. I do not want to restore my iPhone to factory settings because i do not want to lose all of my SMS messages and some other things that are currently saved on my phone and nowhere else. Is there anyway I can create a backup of the phone as it is so that i can restore it from that backup after restoring it to factory settings?

    Any help is appreciated

    Thanks,
    Robes
