If they are on your computer, just sync them to your iPhone 4S.

You need to import them to your computer, then sync them to your iPhone 4S. Alternatively, you could have restored your iPhone 4S from the backup of your iPhone 4. Camera roll photos are included in the iPhone backup. However, if you've already setup up your iPhone 4S, you will have to import then sync the photos to your iPhone 4S.

    Are these pics in your iPhone 4 camera roll, or were they synced to your iPhone 4?

    they are already on my computer, and i cant sync new iphone from back up as its a new number, i did this yesterday and it got very messy and confused as it was saying on the phone that my nymber was the old one not the new 1 etc etc

     

    so am i right in thinking if i sync themfrom the computer, then turn auto sync off they will stay on the new phone?

    i didnt want to sync them ideally i just wanted the ones from camera roll on there as there is alot of pictures on my computer and my old iphone 4 used to import them so they are in a date order and would mean syncing all the folders but when i edit folders on the phone would it change it back when i plug it in and it syncs again?

    i thought i could just back them up to the cloud then download them onto the phone, i obviously missed something lol
