The best way to do it if you don't want to lose any data is to sync calendars, contacts, notes, bookmarks etc in iTunes with the respective computer applications or with Google. App data can be backed up with AppBackup in Cydia if you're jailbroken. Just make sure you know how the backups work so you don't end up deleting important app data when restoring!

wait.. Massie is gonna join the iOS 5 party??? i am beside myself right now..
like others have mentioned it is fine either way. i chose to set up as new phone but i always do. what is it that you are wanting to bring over? maybe now is a good time to "start over"..?
if i know you like i think i do then you have all your info backed up already so why not restore as new and you can always put your saved info on later if needed..

Still on the fence a bit mostly because of Quick Compose in biteSMS, but almost all my most used jb tweaks are covered in iOS 5. (Lockscreen theming was a big one but now I'm not so sure I'll want to theme it with the new notification style.) Everything else I can do without, just need to decide...

i do miss bite A LOT but with every text composed on the native it's becoming 2nd nature and replying to a text with the Notification Center is leaps & bounds improved from the way it used to be
other tweaks i miss are as follows:
iFile, FullScreen for Safari, ScreenDimmer, RemindMeLater and Mywi
(Pandora Hack, shhhh)

I honestly don't think I'll miss Quick Reply at all thanks to the new implementation, just Quick Compose...the thought of having to constantly go to the Messages app to send a first text seems inconceivable after using bite for so long.

lol it's just something you will get used to, again? i remember when i first picked up my iPhone and how amazing it was.. even the texting process. sometimes i think we jailbreakers get spoiled by some of the awesome apps/tweaks out there, but we will survive haha
i know the Purest of iPhone enthusiasts will be creaming their jeans once they get a hold of iOS 5, but we have been using similar software for a while (e.g. LockInfo)
just do it, you'll get used to it and one day this will all be a memory (even more so if a untethered JB is never achieved!)

I was cool with waiting until fall while being JB... but if I have to be Pure... these will be a LONG 3+ months......

i was getting the iTunes error also so i just put 10.5 back on and did the shift-click-restore and all went well. dont forget to restart your computer after you uninstall/install iTunes. i hope you get it worked out

Massie way to go brother BLiNK Welcome back to the light side!!!! glad you found your way out of the darkness that is Team Pure. I'm running iOS 5 on my iPad 2 which can't be JBen anyway so I have the best of both worlds. I know Apple will never allow me to customize the phone the way I want and until that day JB 4 Lyfe lol.

haha "iOS anonymous" i like the sounds of that. if there were such a thing i would have to check in--pronto!
i guess i will not be truly satisfied until i am jailbroken (untethered) on iOS 5, which seems like a very long time from now
