    Default Transfer to new iPhone

    I apologize if this question has been addressed before but i could not find any threads on it. I have preordered the iPhone 4. I currently have a 3GS. When i get the 4 do i just connect to iTunes and restore from backup? Will all of the information (including apps) then be on the 4? I do not sync Apps with iTunes because the App list in iTunes shows all the Apps i have ever downloaded even if i have deleted them off the phone. I am concerned that if i sync the Apps it will try to put them all back on my phone. Any help you guys can offer i would greatly appreciate.

    In theory you are correct. Just plug in the new iPhone and then it should restore your settings, saved games and such. However it's not always 100% smooth and sometimes fails. Basically, you should be ok but there is a chance it could go wrong, albeit a small chance.
