    I've suddenly started having issues with my iPhones home button. Instead of sending it in and losing my phone for days, I'm taking it to an Apple Store a couple of hours away. Is there any file I can take with me on a thumb drive to completely restore the new warranty phone to the settings of my old phone?

    I don't have a laptop to take with me, but I'm thinking there's gotta be some file I can grab so I can be back to normal as soon as I leave the store. Can this be done? Thanks!

    Nope, it can't be done. You need a computer to sync with.

    Thanks.

    A few days... Only will be near an Apple store because of the trip I'm taking. That's why I'm asking, but thanks for the assumption.:rolleyes::p

    Applecare

    You could get applecare and then ask for a replacement. You should be able to get the replacement first, sync it, then return your current unit. This will however require a hold on a credit card of your phones full purchase price.
