I am on my way to store to get the 3GS.
Is there a way to backup my old phone and restore it to new one? Or do I have reset up email and resync?

Hey you can sync your 3G in iTunes and that automatically does a backup. But I suggest when you hook your new 3GS up for the first time that you set it up as a new device. You will get your contacts and calendar events transferred with no problem and all the apps, music, and video you've downloaded from iTunes will just need you to choose to reinstall those to the new phone. Yes you'll have to setup your email again but that's usually painless. If you have email that you require on your phone you should be able to redownload it from the server. At least I can do that with my yahoo mail.

Enjoy your new 3GS.

I almost forgot if you have data from 3rd party apps like shopper or notebooks please be sure to backup that info however that program allows, such as syncdocs or whatever.

Whoops I see you don't need this now.
