    Well my problem is, that everytime i go to "restore my iphone" it puts back all old photos, contacts, from like my first sync. How can i create a different backup for my phone? it has the backup saved from when i like first got it and it keeps putting old pics back on. When i restore it it says do you want to backup from "thomas esposito's iphone" right now the name is just espo's iphone. is there i way i can make a backup for how i have it right now? i hope you can understand what im trying to say and help me out.
    thanks a lot
    espo

    Everytime you sync with iTunes it creates a backup. Look in your iTunes settings for iPhone and delete the old backup, keep the one you want, if it is there, then that will be the restore profile used.

    Otherwise, delete them all, sync, and a new one will be created to restore from.
