hi, i'd like to restore my iphone 4 32GB to an iphone 4S 16GB because i'd like to keep my texts. i'll trim all the fat from the 32GB so its only using 8GB of space... then what do i do from there?

can i keep my texts? i'd love/need to.

it's as simple as backing up your iPhone 4, plugging your iPhone 4s into the same computer with the same iTunes library and backup, and right-clicking on your 4s in the navigation pane and selecting "restore from backup".

done and done :)
