    Hey guys I'm new here and I need some help. I have an iPhone 4 on Verizon's network. I have it jailbroken on 4.2.6 with Greenposi0n. I'm getting tired to the jailbreak and I want to get rid of it. Only reason that I have the jailbreak in the first place is to have infinifolders. I want to upgrade to iOS 5 and I need to know how to do so. I do not want to lose anything that I have to my phone. I have over 1,500 photos and quite a few contacts that I need badly. Would I just need to upgrade the firmware or would I have to do a full restore? How would I be sure not to lose my photo's, contacts ect? Thanks for the help.

    Backup phone via iTunes
    Restore phone and it will upgrade to newest iOS
    When it is done restoring - It will ask if you want to setup phone as new phone or use a backup - select your backup.

    Will I lose my pictures or anything when upgrading to iOS 5? My friend lost all of his while upgrading.

    ----------

    Would it work if I just right clicked on my iPhone in iTunes and clicked restore from backup? Would that take the jailbreak away? Everytime I restore my phone I have to call a number for Verizon to get it working again. My phone runs off an off branch to Verizon's towers so I would have to drive 30+ minutes if I done a restore :(

    No experience with Verizon - your Camera roll is saved with your backup. Make sure you have a backup.

    Ok. Should I try a firmware upgrade first and if it doesn't work then try a full restore?

    As long as you got backup - you wont lose data - so go for it.

    Ok. Should just an upgrade work though?
