Two ways:

1. If you already have an iPhone you're syncing with iTunes, ensure you have your contacts sycned to your computer. When you set up the new iPhone, you can sync the contacts from your computer to new iPhone.

2. If you don't have an iPhone now, save all your contacts to your SIM card, put the SIM card in the iPhone, go into your Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select Import SIM Contacts. This is all pending your existing SIM card is 3G.

To transfer photos, contacts from old iPhone to new iPhone:
1. Connect two iPhone to PC.
2. Choose the category list of your old iPhone that you need to export files
3. Check the files that need to export in the Content Panel and click "Transfer file(s) from device to device" button
4. All the checked files from your old iPhone can be transferred to the new iPhone.

Very easy and specific solution, and works for iPhone 5 as well.

Are you trying to boost your post count? I've noticed a pattern here. Quoting posts that are more than three years old to agree with them or state something that has already been stated isn't really necessary. It might be better to just hit the agree button.

Not specific to this user, but I've noticed a lot of old threads being bumped around here with no regard to the original post date. Sigh.

I know. It's a spammer tendency that is inherent to most forums. We monitor closely for this type of behavior. Report posts as necessary.
