    Hey all. Will it be possible to sync my new iP4 from a 3.1.3 backup of a 3G? Or must I install iOS4 on the 3G in order to restore from backup once the iP4 arrives? I am hesitant to install iOS4 on my 3G because of the conflicting reports it slows the phone way down. Thanks for any help.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Just use the backup from your iPhone on 3.1.3.

    I am very interested in this as well,

    I expect apple woulda made it so you can just restore from 3.1.3. Apple is known for being efficient.

    it doesn't matter what version your iOS is, it can be 2.0 and it will all transfer over to iOS4 with no problems.

    when you plug in your iPhone 4, it'll recognize it as a new device, but will ask you if you want to restore as (name)'s iPhone....just choose the most recent date
