    Hello,

    I'm looking for free software (Windows) that exports settings from one iPhone to another. The configuration of an iPhone looks like this:

    - Every iPhone must have the same PIN
    - Every iPhone must have the same access code
    - Three standard apps must be installed on each iPhone
    - Every iPhone must be connected to the same WiFi network

    The software I'm looking for is not a one time thing. If someone knows software, but it isn't free. Always good to know. I hope you guys can help me out.

    Thank you in advance!

    To be honest, Disk images would be the long and complicated way round it, and you'll probably find that there's no way to do it this way anyway for security reasons. However, there is actually a much simpler way to achieve what you're asking, and it's very easy. Simply make a backup of your iPhone through iTunes, and then do a restore to the new phone of that same backup. it's really very quick to do (certainly alot quicker than writing disks) and all your apps and settings are copied over in the exact same state as they were on the backup you made. Plus it's much more secure, as only you can do this using your AppleID, but nobody else can clone your phone and steal your stuff. ;) Some apps may require you to re-enter your passwords again though, but settings and everything else should be fine.

    It sounds like you want to do an Enterprise deployment of iPhones. Apple supports this. I would advise reading the Apple's White paper on enterprise deployment to see your options.
