    Hi guys!

    The post just delivered my new iPhone 4.

    Before I do anything - I would like to some advice on how to make sure that all contacts, sms, emails, applications etc are also moved to the new phone - I assume this is possible.

    So - is there a verified guide somewhere?

    When done with moving everything - how do I wipe the 3G 100% before I put it up for sale??

    migrating is really simple. First plug in your iphone 3g and right click it on itunes and choose 'create backup' (not sure if its worded exactly like that).

    Then when you setup your iphone 4 on itunes, you are given the option to import your old iphone stuff =)

    I should have known that it being Apple it would be that simple :).

    But how do I wipe the old one 100%???

    Restore + Setup as new (not restore from backup).
