    So, my iPhone got stolen last week. It was a jailbroken 3Gs with 3.1.2. I bought a replacement used Iphone off Ebay and received it today. This new phone has 3.1.2 firmware but is not jailbroken.

    So my question is how can I get all of my apps / data to my new phone? Should I jailbreak first? Do I just sync then? Also, the name of the phone is name of the guy I bought the phone from, how do I change that?

    A huge thanks in advance!

    Redsn0w to JB. Then sync stuff back in iTunes. Once you plug the phone into Tunes, you can easily change name by clicking on it in left column.

    I used Blackrain to jailbreak my original phone, does that matter? Or is it better to use Redsn0w?

    Use what you want. I would never recommend Blackra1n.
