    I am planning to upgrade from my 3G to an iPhone 4. What is the best way to sync the new iPhone 4 with iTunes the first time to ensure all my data, apps, and everything else gets moved over to my new phone seamlessly?

    After Activating and plugging it to iTunes select from a backup and pick the date and everything form your 3G will be transferred onto your iPhone 4

    Thank you for that. So the steps would be as follows I think:

    1 - Backup my 3G to iTunes.
    2 - Connect the iPhone 4 and initialize it.
    3 - Do a restore to the iPhone 4 from iTunes.

    I really wouldn't advise restoring your ip4 from a 3G backup!
