    i just got my replacement iPhone back. When i plugged it into iTunes it said i couldn't put everything back onto it, i had to set it as a new phone first because it had old firmware. so where do i go in iTunes now to put what i backed up onto my new phone?

    Set it up as a new iPhone, then Use the Restore button to download and install the newest firmware then when it is done, restore from a backup.

    Also, anytime you want to restore to a backup, you can right-click on your iPhone in the "Device" section of iTunes and restore from there.

    Or, you might have to set it up as new after you try and restore from a backup only to find that said backup is corrupted by microscopic mogwai who got wet.
