    Angry How do you restore 3GS backup when downgrading from 4.1 to 4.0
    OK i downgraged my iphone 3GS from OS 4.1 to OS 4.0 but when i went to go restore my phone's backup it say that i need to upgrade my phone's OS in order to be able to restore the backups. I made the mistack of waiting to downgrade my phone so that the four backups selection on itunes where from when my phone was running OS4.1

    So is their anyway to get around this thing or is their any way i can get at least contacts information out of the backups to manually put it on my iphone?

    Just restore your phone as new, when you sync it your contacts apps and music will all go back on the phone, just make sure when you go to sync you recheck everything in tunes to sync. The only thing a backup saves is passwords , settings, text messages, phone history, in game and app saves.
