Whats the best way to do it? Do I set it up as new in iTunes?
just your iCloud email, contacts, calendar events, notes & reminders.
Also, once I renter my iCloud credentials in the setup process, what is all downloaded back onto my phone?
I understand. Keep in mind that after you've selected to restore via iTunes and leave your device connected via USB, iTunes will sometimes auto-restore the backup it made prior to the restore process, thus, causing your device to look as it did previously. I disconnect from iTunes after the verification process has ended and while the device is rebooting. By doing so, I am met with the new setup process. And after I've set the language and country, I am prompted with setting up as new or from a backup. Of course, I almost always choose to set it up as new.
I don't want to restore from a backup since I think there are some files in my backup that are corrupt and are causing me issues.
No. After you're all setup and you've entered your Apple ID, you can initiate the App Store app on your device, go to the "Update" section (bottom right corner) and then wait a few seconds and then select "Purchased" (top of the screen) and then you can re-download any and all apps you've ever purchased or downloaded with the current Apple ID.
Will I need to write down all the apps I had on my phone so that I can re download them again?
You shouldn't have any problems. Take care and let us know how it turns out. Also, don't hesitate to ask any more questions if you need to. Enjoy your day.
I jsut want to make sure I am doing this right. I will have a backup of my phone in case I do something wrong.
