    I cracked my IPhone 3g screen, and rather than pay for a replacment, I'm going to reactivate my old 2G IPhone to use for awhile. I backed up the 3G IPhone in Itunes. I got a new sim card from AT&T and activated the 2G IPhone, but the contacts aren't migrating from the phone I have been using. The two phones have the same name in ITunes since I had used the 2G phone previously. Any suggestions on how to get ITunes to bring my updated Contacts over to the 2G phone?

    WIth the 2G iPhone connected to iTunes, right click on the iPhone icon and choose to restore from backup. Choose the backup of the 3G iPhone.

    Or just choose to sync contacts and iTunes will do the rest. It doesn't matter what name you give each iPhone. iTunes uses the serial number for identification purposes so iTunes has always saw them as different iPhones.
