    I'll be getting my new 4s in the mail shortly and had some questions about transferring the data from my 3G.

    When I go to activate my phone and sync it with iTunes, will I have the option of what I want to switch over? I only want my contacts, apps and music. I don't really want to transfer all the pics.

    Also, will the apps remain on my old phone, as well as show up on my new one?

    Thanks for any thoughts. :)

    Best thing to do is get you 3g setup how you want your 4s ! delete anything you don't want and sync with iTunes
    so that when you restore the 4s it will only contain what you want?

    As for the 3g if you are selling etc and want to clear it best to restore to as new with iTunes after your 4s in all correct! :)

    ahh! Good idea!

    I'm planning on keeping my 3G for my family to use as an iPod touch, essentially. So there are some apps on there I'd like for them to have access to.

    Thanks for the advice! :)
