    Activating my new 4S...

    Activating on my son's phone number, then will switch sim cards after it's up and running. (Both are iPhone sims so they'll fit.)

    If I set up as a NEW iPhone, I can go back later and restore from a backup, correct?

    yeah, you can always go back later and restore from a backup.

    I personally like to keep all of my app data, login info, etc. There shouldn't be any harm in restoring from a backup.

    I'm thinking it will go a lot faster plus it may not be a bad idea to "clean house" a bit. I have a lot of apps I no longer use on there.

    You can always clean up the iPhone 4 by getting rid of the apps you don't want on your iPhone 4S and other stuff as well and then do a backup of the iPhone 4 so that when you restore from backup to your new 4S it will only carry over the apps and things you want.
