    When I use the usb port on my docking station, works fine...but when I use the usb on my laptop, itunes doesn't recognize my iphone.

    I've uninstalled/reinstalled the apple mobile device driver. The iphone is recognized by my machine.

    Can you please elaborate or your predicament my friend, from what I can understand from your description, you have a busted USB post in your laptop better check other USB storage of some sort, see if that would either be detected or not, if not your USB port in the laptop is the main problem, but if the laptop recognizes the USB storage, then the wire that you use is the problem.

    Do you mean that when you plug in the iphone to your laptop via USB, Itunes doesn't display your iphone?
    Maybe this is a case of outdated itunes... try downloading the latest version. :)

    Try this. Turn off your phone then insert it to you computer. Hold and press home button and wait till your computer recognized your phone through recovery mode.

    For anyone else having this issue on OS X this post will fix it.

    1. Disconnect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod from the Mac.
    2. In the Finder, locate iTunes in the Applications folder and drag it to the Trash.
    3. Move the iTunes icon to the Trash.
    4. Choose Go > Go to Folder.
    5. Enter /System/Library/Extensions and click Go.
    6. Locate the file AppleMobileDevice.kext and drag it to the Trash.
    7. Choose Go > Go to Folder.
    8. Enter /Library/Receipts/ and click Go.
    9. Locate the file AppleMobileDeviceSupport.pkg and drag it to the Trash. If prompted, authenticate with the administrator password.
    10. Restart the computer.
    11. Choose Finder > Empty Trash and restart the computer.
    12. Download and install the current version of iTunes.
    13. Connect your device to the Mac again and open iTunes & see if you can sync now.
