I know there are a lot of threads asking the question about whether or not to start your phone as new or restore from backup. Is there anyone else here that has been restoring your phone from backup ever since you got your first iPhone? I've had every iPhone since the iPhone 1 and have been restoring from backup every time. Over the years I've had no issues when doing it that way. I've always believed that starting with a fresh iPhone each time defeats the purpose of having backup and restore. I personally don't relish the idea of spending an entire day reloading all of my apps and entering passwords. From what I understand, when you restore from backup, you are only loading your data, settings and camera roll. Everything else, especially the OS, is a fresh install. I don't see harm in simply re-loading personal data from backup unless, of course, its corrupt.
