    also you should import your pics to your computer http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083

    Photos on your iPhone 4 transferred from your computer should remain on your computer and can be transferred to your iPhone 5 the same way - via the iTunes sync process.


    Photos/videos in the Camera Roll can and should be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera. After the photos/videos in your iPhone 4 Camera Roll are imported by your computer, you can transfer the photos/videos to your iPhone via the iTunes sync process as with any other photos transferred from your computer.


    Contacts and calendar events are designed to be synced with a supported address book and calendar app on your computer and there are a number of free email accounts that support syncing contacts and calendar events over the air such as with an Apple iCloud account, Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail.


    This data is also included with the iPhone's backup, which is updated by iTunes as the first step during the iTunes sync process if you have the backup for your iPhone 4 stored on your computer. If the backup is done wirelessly with an Apple iCloud account, you have the choice with a new iPhone to transfer the backup for another iOS device to the new iPhone with iTunes or wirelessly with your iCloud account.

    i have tried backing my pics and contacts and calender on my mac and when i plug my phone in its saying sync and retoring from backup nothing is working!!!! what am i doing wrong?

    To import photos and video from your iPhone 4 Camera Roll, you use iPhoto or the Image Capture application.


    To sync contacts with the Address Book and calendar events with iCal on your Mac, this is selected under the Info tab for your iPhone 4 sync preferences with iTunes. Was this not already selected? If not and you have contacts available in the Address Book and calendar events available in iCal on your Mac, a merge prompt will be provided with the first sync for this data with your iPhone 4 which you want to select.
