    Are the settings actually SAVED in the backup? or just synced from your mac?

    Just because I have an exchange account that refuses to work on my mac...but i use regularly on my iPhone.

    I'm getting a replacement iPhone tomorrow and would be useful to know if i need to dig out the settings or not...?


    Thanks
    John

    as in the account settings?

    Like if I restore my iPhone from a backup...will my exchange account be there or will I have to add it again? (baring in mind its not saved on my mac because it wont work for some reason)

    It's a work exchange account and i don't want to have to wait a week for our pathetic IT dept to send over the details again.

    See above, I was adding info as you typed, I guess. You'll have your account info saved in the backup (at least according to Apple...I don't have an exchange account, but I can't see why that would matter).

    Each time I have upgraded or restored, I have had to reenter my mail passwords...all the other settings were there, just not the passwords.
