    Ok...when I first got my phone I was having issues with it syncing, and it was discovered that it was because I had to have it plugged into a USB 2 port, which only one of my ports is.

    Now the issue is, it recognizes that an iPhone is hooked up, but not that it's MY iphone that has previously been synced.

    It asks if I want to set it up as a new phone, or restore from backup of "Corry's Phone" (what I named it)....


    ...I've been reluctant to do so before asking here...if I restore it from Corry's phone, and I don't have my contacts stored in outlook or anything like that....will I somehow lose my numbers or my calendar entries? (I hope I'm explaining this right).

    Does iTunes save that stuff, too?

    Again, I hope that's not confusing!

    Thanks in advance!

    If no one knows, can someone possibly point me in the right direction of where I can find the answer?
