O.K. ---- I am srsly p'od!!!!
I have spent the last three hours trying to restore my iPhone4 backup to my new iPhone 4S. And everytime I just end up with a factory standard iPhone 4S - no text messages, no contacts, no photos.
I mean really, I only want my messages and contacts - the rest I can do away with (backed up separately on PC).
Have no idea what I am doing wrong. Here is the process I have followed:-
1) Backup old iPhone 4 in iTunes
2) Disconnect old iPhone 4
3) Connect new iPhone 4S
3) Go through setting up new phone AND selecte option to restore phone from a previous backup on my computer through iTunes,
4) Phone and computer "talk" to one another
5) I end up with a blank iPhone 4S - no txt's, no contacts.
Maybe I am just too old to figure this sh*t out - but this is srsly frustrating.
I hope that someone out there has figured out how you actually do this, 'cause Apple's advice ain't working for me.
In iTunes, with the iPhone 4s connected, rightclick the iPhone under Devices. From the menu you get choose "restore from backup", choose a backup from before you connected the 4S for the first time....
