    When I first sync and wish to update my new IPhone with my previous backup data from my 3G.....do I answer new phone setup?? Thought I would ask before doing it incorrectly:confused:.

    If you want all the settings, apps, media etc. to come back from the 3G, then select restore from a backup.

    OK, thanks for the help. I'm assuming it will give me choices on backup so I can select the most recent done this morning.

    It will ask if you want to restore from last backup and will give you the time and date of that backup.

    I chose to set mine up as a new iPhone. I would rather not just transfer everything over but it's personal choice.

    If you set it up as a new phone can you still get some of your old apps or contacts on it??

    Sorry for being thick! :eek:

    Your apps and contacts are synced to iTunes. You can set up the device as a new device, and still get all of your apps. Restoring from a backup is used mainly for maintaing settings.
