    Question iTunes backup and restore
    Hey everyone,

    I'm not sure if this is the correct location for this question.

    I've been having issues with my iPhone 4 after upgrading to 4.3.3. I was planning on rebuilding my iPhone from scratch and I wanted to know. When iTunes backup and restores, could the restore have corrupted files that would cause my EDGE Internet and MMS not to work correctly?

    Also I have used PKGbackup to backup all my Cydia stuff. Then I used it to restore. I just want to know if my iTunes backups could be corrupted or could it be the PKGbackup backup or both.

    Any help would be greatly appropriated!

    Thanks!

    Yes the backup can get corrupted, mine did, I restore my iPhone4s from a iphone 4 backup that was corrupted and had signal issues and stuff, I did the following and now it's better then ever

    First tell the iPhone to backup to the Cloud and sync with iTunes then do a restore in iTunes as a new phone the phone will reboot at the end and ask in the new boot screens I u want to restore info from a Cloud account Select YES, you will have to recheck music and Movies and ringtones(headache on tho one) for sync and then your good

    Thanks for the info BenderRodriguez.

    So is a 3rd party program that will allow me to do a iTune backup and restore? But allow me to select what I want to backup and restore. Like a check boxes.
