    Was wondering what you guys are going to do?

    I'd quite like to keep all my app data so I don't have to start my games again but my iPhone 4 has just been getting slower and slower so I think starting again might be a chance to get rid of all the crap!

    I'll be backing up from a 16gig over to my new shiny 64gig.
    Excited to see what my percentages of memory will look like now :D

    After all the battery issues of the 4S, when I get my iphone 5, I am going to start fresh, I can get my contacts and stuff from icloud, rest is apps to download again, and spending another 30 min setting up my folders and settings again.

    I have done countless restores and new phone setups on my iphone 4s due to battery drains and leaks over the last year....with this one, I am going to start fresh and never look back...

    To me, new phone...spend the time setting it up the way you want it...restore only if you must.

    When updating to a new phone I always set up as new.

    Start fresh with a new OS.

    Spring cleaning.

    For me, a new phone is a chance to purge any numbers I no longer need, and any apps that are outdated, although obviously syncing some apps might happen. Fresh start.
