    In iTunes just restore from backup - no problem provided you are on the same FW. What FW was your stolen phone on?

    Then you should be OK if the new one is on 3.0 or 3.01 - if it's not then just upgrade first before restoring

    Do you know where the backup is stored? I would like to reformat my PC while waiting for my new iphone, but I can't find the restoration file to backup before reformatting.

    Any ideas?

    I really don't know - can't your reformat wait?
    Otherwise Google should help.
