As many of the other users here I plan on updating my 4S and getting the 5. I'm giving my mom the 4S as her first smart phone (which she'll love) and updating to the 5 for myself...it's a win win. I basically wanted to know how to back EVERYTHING on my 4S up so once I get my 5 I can plug it into iTunes and everything (contacts/apps/music/ringtones) are all there. I know iTunes runs my backups but how do I put that back up on my new iPhone 5? Would you recommend me updating to iOS 6 on my 4S and running a back up then restore to the iPhone 5? I also want to deactivate my 4S from my iTunes and not have it connected as one of my connected devices. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
