    Hey guys...

    I just got a new iPhone 4S today!

    So I backed up my iPod Touch 4G to use that as the iPhone software.

    When I restored the iPhone from backup (Right click on the iphone in the side of iTunes, select "restore from backup"), all the settings synced and so did the Movies and Music. ALL MY APPS DID NOT SYNC.

    I have not restored my iPod Touch yet, so my question is,
    What do I need to do to make my iPhone identical to my iPod Touch?

    Thanks a lot!

    I apologize if this question has been asked.. I am lost here.

    Did you get some of your apps? From what I have read (since I am lookinginto doing the same thing) apps that are no longer available and songs or movies that are no longer available in the itunes store won't sync. may get a newer version of an app unless you click on it while it is loading to prioritize it...if you like the older version, the app store will try to reinstall that unless it isn't available any longer. It also won't restore songs purchased elsewhere.
