    I want to set my new iPhone 5 as new and then import my contacts only. I'll manually download my purchased apps and music through the App Store on my iPhone. For some reason I cannot figure how to do this. It seems to either restore everything or nothing. What are the steps for what I need to do?

    If you have your contacts synced with iCloud, they should automatically transfer to your phone after you set it up as new and log into iCloud account m

    I usually just back up my contacts with Google contacts, and then setting the phone up as new, and when synchronizing with iTunes, I choose that it should sync contact with Google. Works flawlessly.

    Will the games app still retain the same level if I set up as new?
    I've had several games ruined because I set up my phone as new and when I synced them back, I start from the beginning again.
