    I just got a replacement iPhone 3G from the Apple Store, how do I go about restoring it to the backup information from my previous iPhone 3G?

    Yoy plug it into your computer and it will prompt you to restore from a backup. Just select the backup and you're done.

    FYI it does take a little while so be patient.
