Yup. All that about "no spaces" is irrelevant when you're quoting anyway! Spelling error: "volumes" is not "Volumes". And why the single quotes? Use double quotes unless it causes you grief. And why specify which rsync? Surely /usr/local/bin is in your path? Or you might be using Fink or MacPorts... sheesh, stop micromanaging!

rsync -avv --protect-args "/Volumes/Whatever my iPhone is called without changing it/" "~/Some iPhone Backup Directory"

See? Easy.
