    Ah, sorry about that. Running a windows vista 32 bit. The one iphone was linked to an mac though. The newer one to the vista.

    Can the iPhone back up your contacts to windows, if it can you should be able to restore your contacts by syncing, has the older phone ever been synced to the windows computer?

    The older ipod has never been linked to windows. Do i need to plug it into windows in order for it to sync?

    Plug in your old iPhone

    In iTunes:
    • Click your XXX's iPhone icon
    • Click Sync on the right side
    • Go To iTunes --> Preferences --> Devices
    • Make sure your phone is backed up
    • Connect your new iPhone
    • Click the XXX's iPhone icon
    • Click restore
    • After the restore, click set up as a backup

    Will this restore write over everything on the iphone 4? I already set up on the 4 in iTunes. But I don't have all the contacts that were on the 3G. I don't want to screw this up...
