How can I transfer or sync  all the data from my previous iphone to the new one while not having the first(it's not working due to high voltage problem of the area),and of course not loosing anything?

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.0.1

    Hopefully you've backed up the old iPhone to either iTunes or iCloud. Restore the new one from iTunes or iCloud using the old one's data.

    So it's not necessary to have both phones?Because I have already backed up the data from my old iPhone (exept of some pics but I hope that I'm going to find them again..) which I cannnot use it anymore.

    Correct, you do not need your old iPhone. All you need is your old iPhone's backup. If you had an old model iPhone and wanted to replace it with a newer one, restoring it from a backup of your older one would be the process you would use.


    Make sure before you start that your new iPhone is either really new or completely erased. If you did not just buy it new, do Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings before restoring it from your old iPhone's backup.
