    OKay guys, please forgive me if if this have been asked before. To weeks ago I got my iphone replaced due to some issues. Anyhow they gave me a new one and when i got home I plugged in to my laptop and everything was cool. So, some how all the data(contacts, texts, pics etc..) from that previous phone some how was tranfer to the new phone. I dont know if its automatically or I did something to have the data from the old phone to the new iphone. Anyways, this week matter of fact yesterday I had to take the secon iphone in due to to battery issues and guess what??? It gor replaced. So now I have a new iphone but this time the data (contacts #, text msgs, etc..)from the previous phone did not transferd to this new iphone. I guess my question is: is it possible to recover the data from the previous iphone into the new iphone? If so, how I do that? Please help.

    All of that should be stored on the computer. If it is not updating to your phone you can restore the data by selecting the boxes at the bottom of the content tab in iTunes (it will replace the data on the phone with that on the computer.) If that doesn't work, do a software restore.
