    I'm setting my new iPad up, and I see this option. Does it work? What does it do?

    it will restore your last settings. but why on iphone? you should backup your ipad first before screwing up everything.

    I know what the restore option does, but I'm just wondering what it could restore from a backup of my iPhone.

    I'd imagine it would restore things like your sync settings for music, video, contacts, calendars, mail etc and settings saved within iPhone apps.

    it'd make your ipad like your iphone, but bigger.

    I got this same message the first time I sync-ed my iPad. I chose setup as new, but like the OP, I am curious what would've happened if I chose to restore from a previous backup of my jailbroken iPhone?
