    Hi all :)

    So I had an iPhone a few months ago but didn't need it as I just wanted to get the itouch instead.

    My iPhone data still exists as a backup on my computer named "SOL Phone"

    A friend let me borrow his iPhone to use while I waited for the new touch.

    I bought that today and plugged it into my computer.

    Two options showed up in itunes, "Set up as new iPhone" or
    "Restore from the back up of" with "SOL Phone" as the option.

    I clicked restore and now have all my OLD data on my NEW touch.

    Now I would like to get the NEWER info off of my friends borrowed iPhone to ADD that to my new touch.

    Seems there is no option to do so...

    "Set up as a new iPhone", I am told will erase all my data, the other, replace it.

    Now what?

    You're SOL. :). The only way to possibly merge data would be if you were jailbroken. Even then it would involve manually editing db files.

    Could you not just do a backup from your "newer" iphone, then restore from that?


    Sorry just reread your post and yeah you're SOL, its one or the other.

    If you do a back up of the iPhone, but it doesn't have all of the old're toast.

    No way to merge that I know of.
