just lug the 3G in and sync it. Make sure everything is set on the sync tab.

then plug int he new 4G and sync again with every set on the sync tab.

With the 3G plugged in, right click on it in iTunes and click on back up. Then plug the iPhone 4 in and do a restore… After it's finished, it will ask to restore from backup… Chose the one you did on 3G. That's what j did and everything is on my new phone. Oh, make sure both phones have same version of software

media is not stored on the phone (eg old 3G) it is in itunes media library. when you connect the 4G make sure that the sync options have been enable to transfer the media you want.

yeah, and to make sure it an exact copy of your 3G, do what I did with the back up and restore from back up

edit: it'll move over texts as well

yeah apparently it does slow your iphone4 down if you have backed up from an older model iphone, i dont see why but a lot of people say that it is slower

+ i would also like to know which case is best haha

the format of the txt messages archive is different.

the killer was on a 3G running iOS 4 when you have thousands of txts backed up in the phone.

russ glad you got it going.

I got the clear plastic case that only covers the back and it is better than expected. That + a screen protector would be a good combination.

Edit, this one :

Mines been fine so far, but I'll bear it in mind if I think it's slow and just do a full restore and no backup
