    I currently have an iPhone 4 (my first iPhone) & I pre-ordered a 4s.
    When my 4s arrives how do I transfer everything over??

    Do I just plug it into my computer & songs/apps will transfer??


    Sorry for the stupid question..

    Open iTunes...back up iPhone 4...when 4S comes, plug in and use back up to transfer everything.

    Backups don't carry over music so you will have to transfer that manually.

    Not true. I can go get 10 iPhones right now and plug them into my iTunes and there will NO need to manually do anything. You must not be doing something right.

    If you're changing computers, then of course it's manual.

    Do you sync all your music to your phone? Because I manually add stuff. I just put songs and albums I like and everytime I've had to restore from backup my music is never there. Always have to add it again.

    The response was that BACKUPS do not carry over music which is 100% correct... music does not transfer device to device via the iTunes backup file... all of your songs will have to sync again.

    There are no stupid questions. Well, maybe there are, but this is not one of them.
