So i bought the new 3Gs today. She activated it in the store, and said it'd switch over from my 3G within 10 mins or so. 3 Hours pass, and its still not activated. I go home, plug it in, and it starts working. So then I set it all up, and it starts putting a backup from 2007 onto my phone. I've restored it 3 times, and its still doing this. What am I doing wrong?

Try this (unless you've already done so). Do a 'Restore' on your 3Gs and then when the option comes to pick between 'set up as new phone' or 'restore from backup..', chose 'set up as new phone'. Once done you'll have to explicitly resync your photos, videos and tunes, but this isn't a big deal.
