I have iPhone 4 and I want to transfer Notes, Contacts (it was partially done in the ATT store. For some reason not all data was transferred) and Messages to a new iPhone5 while keeping new setting. Restoring fromiPhone 4 back up works but at the same time it it completely changes phone's  settings. I don't want to go this route as I used to have hardware problems with iPhone 4 and I don't want to "transfer" old issues to my new phone.

iPhone 5, iOS 6
