How do you keep your contacts and personal info after loading cyndia and installer? I used winpwn.

I had to restore my 1st gen iPhone for the 1st time last week, got stuck on the boot logo loop...
Anyway when I finished restoring and opened iTunes there was a msg showing me the name I had previously given to my phone.
After synching all the contacts were there, also some small configs.

Even if you have to setup your iPhone as a new device...you still retain a lot of your info if you are using some type of contact manager in conjunction with iTunes managing your music/videos. Make sure you also have your images downloaded.
When you have to setup as a new iPhone, you'll lose settings, SMS history, Call Log history (but not voicemail), Safari history/cache, and other little things you take for granted like where you were with using the ipod function, EQ settings, etc. etc.
