i recently lost my iPhone 3g and i am wondering if i get a new replacement one, if i would be able to restore the data from the one i had. i am thinking that the last backup was made right before i upgraded from 2.2 to 3.0. if all else fails, i should be able to restore to 2.2 to use that save, right? but i am also wondering if i get the 3gs, if it would let me restore to 2.2, even though i doubt it would. i am thinking about just getting a regular 3g, but if i have enough, and the restore works, ill think about getting the 3gs.

any answers?

When you get the new phone it won't be on anything less than 2.2 unless it is a 3GS which will be on 3.0/3.0.1. A 2.2 backup will work on 3.0, but a 3.0 backup is not compatible with anything less than 3.0. If you get a replacement you should be fine.
