    My new 3GS arrives today. I currently have a 3G with the 3.0 firmware on it.

    Should I set up the 3GS "fresh" or should I do a restore as part of the process (in other words, should I select "Set up as a new phone" or "Restore from backup of:")? For some reason, it seems cleaner to me to just "start over" and set up all of my settings and sync preferences from scratch.

    Thoughts?

    I started fresh for the same reason, the only issues are the settings, in app settings, and email accounts will need to be set up again. These were a non-issue for me because I did not have a lot of data stored within my apps.

    Just my opinion:rolleyes:

    if u had a lot of stuff, i would do restore.
