    That is done thru itunes.
    Every time you sync your iphone itunes creates a backup of it and then when you get a new iphone you can restore from back thru itunes and have all your stuff back like texts, email account, contacts etc... on the new iphone.
    That does not restore JB items installed like themes and other addons.

    I guess my question is will can they make a backup in store and transfer to my iphone in store so I can leave with an already set iphone.

    No. You have to do that at home before you go to the store.

    Correct.
    They wont do the backup and restore from backup right there at Apple.
    That can take a while around 30Min.
    They advise you to do it at home.

    Plus you will w2ant to restore to a clean version of the OS without the jailbreak. If they know it was jailbroken, they may refuse to service it.
