The data is transferred. But I fear that is not your true intent.

Let's hear more about the issues you face. Such as?

1. How do I transfer my contacts from Iphone to Android?
2. How do I play my iTunes collection on Android?

Keep in mind that many of these questions have been discussed so be sure to ask here and on google.

You can't just "touch" and it magically transfer.... Wink

All this data transfer is such a PITA as devices vary or simply don't agree on the method -OR- its more steps involved. Sometimes it maybe better to go Android to iPhone rather than the other way around. But here's a link:

But, in most cases reviewing the manual or support websites usually provide some clue, tips, hints, etc.. Plus, I wouldn't rule out some cable, updates, internet link or wireless. take my word for it, it isn't as easy as it sounds. Itunes may have issues, no way around it.
