As far as I know, iTunes will not let you restore to a backup that is from a newer firmware.

they both give me the option to BAKCK UP when i right click. the problem is when i try to do a "restore from backup" on the one that i wish to transfer everything to, it does not show the backups from the iPhone that i'm moving away from. so i have no way of selecting the backup i want to use. each phone only shows their very own backup.

Have you tried a desktop program called Cyder 2?
