Question: Restore from a device with different phone number
- i am a total newbie when it comes to iPhone backup restore procedures.
i managed to backup both old iPhones 3 & 5(different phone numbers) using iTunes onto our MAC.
I’m dumping my iPhone 3 because i just inherited my wife’s iPhone 5s (she has upgraded to the 10).
I would like to transfer my old iPhone 3 settings onto the iphone 5.
(remember both phones have different numbers)
However, i can’t seem to find a way to point the iPhone 5 to locate and restore the old iPhone 3 backup file. It seems the iPhone 5 automatically points/locates its backup file.
question - how do i point my iPhone 5 to use the iPhone 3 backup file?
iMac, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
