Urgent(?) question. If I set up as new phone, can I still use the backup?

Hey all, as the topic states, my question is this: My 3G iPhone was acting up so I went in and exchanged it for a new one. They recommended I not restore the new phone from a backup, as it may carry the software issues over. If I set the phone up as a new phone, will I be able to partially restore it from a previous backup, or will it erase my backup data on my PC? I want to sync everything but my apps.

Id like to get this done in the next hour as I don't want to be up all night, so if someone has any idea a simple shout out would be VERY much appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry the response was not within an hour but, the guys at the store re correct. If you restore from a backup and a software clitch was causing your problems that same problem may just may carry over to the new phone. If you restore from new you will not have these issues but you will have some more work.
