    Default Tranferring to Data from iPhone to New Computer

    Good evening. My brother has a new PC. He has a jailbroken 3G running on 3.1. He has quite a number of appointments and such in his iphone's calendar as well as a number of apps that have were never transferred over to his old laptop. What is the proper way to go about transferring all his data from his phone without losing anything? Is it possible? If so, how can it be done. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Apps are easy. He just needs to authorize his new computer with his iTunes account and all the apps will transfer over to the computer without a problem. I think if he "checks for downloads" in iTunes, it may download all apps he's purchased as well.

    For the calendar, he needs to create a dummy event in outlook. Then when he syncs his iPhone, iTunes will ask if he wants to replace the computer, replace the iPhone, or merge. Select merge, delete the dummy after the sync is complete, and sync again. The same idea holds for contacts.

    Since he is jailbroken, there may be other options but I'm not familiar with them.
