Hi

I'm not sure if this is the correct section for this question. My apologies if not.
My girlfriend has an iphone 3 (I think it's 3GS). She just got an iphone 4 today. How do we transfer all her contacts from her iphone 3 to her iphone 4. Note that the no longer has phone reception, internet access etc.

Thanks in advance.

Connect the iPhone 3 to a computer with iTunes installed.

Back up the iPhone 3.

Connect the iPhone 4 to the same computer.

Restore the iPhone 3 backup to the iPhone 4.

EVERYTHING that can transfer (probably 99%) will transfer from the old phone to the new automatically.

Thanks for the replies. I don't have exchange so I'll have to do it using itunes.

So, basically I just connect the old phone to the PC and press a backup button within itunes. Then I just plug in the new phone and do a restore. Is that about it?

Thanks again.

Cellular providers only transfer contacts. iTunes allows for the transfer of the camera roll, sms, mms, calendar, notes, settings, apps and their data.
