Have A Genius Bar Appointment For My Iphone 4s. I backed up phone, but..
As far as the photos I've taken WITH my device.. are they stored with the backup? It'd be nice to know if they replace my 4s, all of the photos I've taken will be able to be put back onto my device.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

as for your wifes phone, that had to suck sorry you guys had to go through that.
EDIT: btw, everytime you do a backup to your iphone, does it store each one, like blackberry does? and if so, where on the comp (windows xp) would i be able to find these files(back ups)?
Now question in regards of "Backups"
I backed up my entire device (well.. whatever it does when you have it plugged into iTunes...)
But for some reason Genius Bar guy said not to restore from a backup since the underlying issue I had was with my battery and not getting service...
Is there a way to manually choose to just sync the photos/videos when I do the initial plug up to my home Macbook?
Or shouls I just restore from backup

You can plug in the old phone and open up iPhoto and import the photos and videos from you iPhone. It is really easy. Then you can start fresh on the new device.

thats the thing, I dont have the old phone anymore. Now I did do a backup last night quite fine, but I want the photos in my photo stream back for this new device, and I'm curious as to how I go about that without doing a FULL backup of settings/etc/etc.
Also, this 1 by 1 installing apps= blower

For Mac. It is a program that extracts or opens the backup file stored on your mac. Just google search iPhone backup extractor one of the many extractors will come up. I can't remember exactly which one i used, but any of them should work. I used a free one i believe it was call iPhone Backup Extractor. You will also have to google search where iTunes stores the backup file on your computer. The extractor will need to know where the file is located.
This is all assuming that you backed up your iPhone to iTunes on your mac. If you backed your iPhone to iCloud you have no other choice but to restore from your backup. I can give you more instructions if this is the case.
