    Well, this issue has been pondering me for a while. I will be purchasing the iPhone 4 on launch on the 30th, and I am debating to set it up as a new phone or restore from backup. The thing is, I want to keep my game saves. I am so proud of some of my accomplishments (3 star all levels and sets in Angry Birds minus the last couple levels and things of that nature). Also, I do not want to have to re organize my apps but I will just copy them off my 3GS anyway. I guess my question here is, is there any way to keep my game saves, but set up as a new phone at the same time?

    Restoring from backup has NEVER caused problems for me across 2 generations and 5 replacement phones.

    Just make sure you sync all your apps first, then back up.

    Setting up as new will delete all your saves. Restoring from back up is good but if you have problems restoring as new may be a necessary evil.

    Well, I get some minor glitches on my 3GS, will those carry over to the iPhone 4?

    Hard to tell. Can't hurt trying it from backup first.
