    so when I got home from apple with my iphone 4 and connected it to itunes it asked me if I want to set up a new phone, or restore form a backup.

    whats the difference? is there a right and wrong choice here?

    Can someone else elaborate with some more detail to the original question?

    If you are coming from a 3G or 3Gs, what does setting up your phone as new in the menu, differ than restoring from your 3Gs backup?

    restoring from backup transfers your information onto the new phone like saved game stuff and settings...setting up as new does not do this.

    i came from a JB 3G with iOS4 GM so i wanted to start from scratch but that was my choice.

    like i said its up to you. worst case scenario is if you do it from a backup and it runs funky you just restore it as new.

    I also started fresh after much internal debate. I lost a few games, but I think it was worth it in the end.
