Thread: As a new phone

    Default As a new phone
    So when you restore to reverse the effects of jailbreaking to have a clean iPhone, i keep seeing that you should restore and set up 'as a new iPhone'. When you do this, does this include choosing your plans again and all that? What goes into this process. Can someone please explain step by step? Thank you.

    Wen you 'Set up your iPhone as new' after a full restore, the only thing you're doing is not letting it restore all your settings and syncs.

    Some settings can and will conflict with a newly restored iPhone thus it is always safer to set it as new and readjust your settings and syncs.

    Setting your iPhone as new does not mean you have to reselect plans and other stuff.

    Hope that helps...

    Yes you will lose your text messages but if you have to restore it's probly because your phone is having severe issues and losing your texts is a small price to pay to fix your phone.
