Thread: Iphone Backup and Transfer to New

  1. #1
    Default Iphone Backup and Transfer to New
    Hi everybody.

    I'm trying to transfer all my girlfriend's data from her previous 2g Iphone to her new 3gs and I'm unsure how to do it properly without messing up.

    I didn't do any "restore from backup" as I'm pretty sure is gonna update her 3.1.2 jb and unlocked 3gs.

    Here's the summary:

    MUSIC: I could just sync all her songs to the new one

    PICS: I would have to extract all the pics and then sinc them again. How?

    CONTACTS: Extracting them from the backup folder? (Suggestions?)

    SMS: No clue how to do this

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    If it were me this is what I would do.

    Plug the 2g into itunes and sync it. Make sure your contacts are syncing through itunes too (I think under "info" tab). Backup all your photos through iPhoto or photo app of your choice.

    When she gets the new phone plug it into itunes and set it up as new phone. If you restore from backup theres quite a few problems you can run into. Then you can sync your contacts and sync the photo folder your put your photos in and your music and your apps. You will lose your text history but imo its worth it to set is up as a new phone.
    Have they released the jailbreak in the app store yet?
