    I believe the screen you are at is only asking if you want to transfer all your contacts, pics, stuff like that, from a previous backup.

    If you click on the new phone option, all that will be gone.

    So when you have it plugged in select the option to restore from the previous backup, unless you're not seeing that...

    I ran into the same thing. You're presented with the option to restore from backup or set up as a new phone. First time I restored from backup (which took freakin forever) then when it was done, I got the same blasted screen again. Just to be sure, I restored from backup *again* and then danged if I didn't get the same screen after that. So at that point I said set up a new phone. It still remembered my phone's name, I think the only thing I had to do was adjust my sync settings to how I wanted them. Wasn't a big deal, just wasted my time doing the backup restore twice. All my settings on the phone, such as email accounts, contacts, etc were still in place.
