Itune always wants to delete my apps on iphon [Solved/Closed]

 OmgOmgOMg123 -

i have a problem when using itune.

i connect my iphone to itune, and under "summary" label, i choose automatically sync when this iphone is connected and Manually mange music and videos. and under other labels such as applications, music, podcast...i dont tick sync...
but now, every time if i want to change the sync setting of like app or music or else, itune will pop up a message and warn me: " are you sure you want to sync? all existing contents will be deleted on your iphone...."
just now, i made a ringtune and wanted to sync to my iphone, but once i click sycn under ringtone, itune give me the same message" are you sure you want to sync? all app will be deleted....."
why is that?

what you do is:

1. Go to your itunes, look for your ipod bar on your left...
2. Right-click your ipod/iphone icon and look for 'transfer purchase'
3. then you can sync back your ipod/iphone without loosing your apps.

Good luck and enjoy!

Thank you
