    What is the best method to move from one phone to another. Would I use a iPhone 4 backup to restore the 4S?

    Need to move contacts and calendar as they are MOST important. I guess I could sync to Outlook and then sync the 4s to Outlook to do the same.

    What is the best way

    Thanks:)

    Use iTunes to activate/sync your new phone and it will restore your apps and stuff.

    Like many things from apple, its quite seamless, and easy.

    Once your iP4 is connected to iTunes you can click (right click PC) on it in the left side menu and then choose to back-up.
    You will use this back-up when you connect your new iP4s.
    Easy peasy!

    Will there be a way to backup my iphone 4 "to the cloud" (after I update to iOS 5) and then restore everything into my new 4S without plugging into iTunes?

    So... Is there ANY reason to physically connect to iTunes anymore (after the iOS 5 update)?
