Hi, I’m getting my iPhone 4 replaced because old one was lost. Is there anyway that I can transfer all existing App data and transfer it to my new phone once I get it?  Just for extra info, my iPhone is Jailbroken. Any help will be much appreciated!

  1. First, it’s a good idea to ensure you have the latest version of iTunes installed.

    • If you’re using a Windows PC; open iTunes and click on Help in the top menu, then select Check for Update.
    • If you’re on a Mac; open iTunes and click on iTunes in the top menu, then select Check for Updates…

    Now simply follow the on-screen prompts to update iTunes.

    Before you move all of your data over to the iPhone 4, it’s also a very good idea to ensure that your current iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G or iPhone has the latest iOS version available.

    1. Open iTunes on your Windows or Mac PC
    2. With your iPhone powered on, connect it to your computer using the supplied USB cable
    3. After a few seconds, your iPhone will appear in the middle of the left-hand iTunes column under Devices — click on it
      • If your iPhone currently has an older version of iOS, you should automatically be prompted to update
      • If you are not prompted; click Check for Update, then follow the on-screen prompts to update iOS
    4. Now, simply follow the on-screen prompts to update iOS on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G or iPhone

    Back up your current iPhone

    Your iPhone was likely backed up during the update process, but you should create another backup file now that your iOS version has been updated.

    1. With your iPhone still connected to your computer, right-click it in the left-hand iTunes column under Devices
    2. Select Back Up

    Your iPhone will now be backed up and all apps, games, music, movies, settings and other date will be saved to the new backup file

    Set up and restore your new iPhone 4

    Here’s the really easy part. When you first connect your new iPhone 4 to iTunes, you will be walked through the setup process.

    Near the end of the setup process, you will see the following message appear:

    An iPhone has been previously synced with this computer.

    Beneath this message, select Restore from the backup of: and choose your old iPhone by name from the drop-down menu.

    Click Continue, then follow the on-screen prompts to complete the setup process.

    That’s it!

    Your iPhone 4 will now be restored and all of the apps, games, music, movies, photos, settings and other files from your old iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G or iPhone will be loaded onto your new device.
