    I had a jailbroken iPhone 4 (iOS 5.0.1) and ordered a new iPhone 4S (iOS 5.0.1).

    Before setting up the new phone, I created a backup of the jailbroken iPhone 4 in iTunes then used that backup to setup my new iPhone 4S in iTunes.

    I know apps installed through the jailbreak are not preserved, but is anything with the jailbreak carried across, specifically anything in iOS?

    Sometimes there are a few orphan files that just take up space. Usually best to just set up as new.

    Did something similar... only issue I had was Navigon. Ended up deleting from the phone, and doing a full reinstall from app store.

    Otherwise, restoring from backup preserved previous wifi hotspots, all the tweaks I had done in Settigns for device personalization... it all just worked as it was on the previous phone. Other than Navigon.

    As Alli suggested it would be best to set up as a new phone, much cleaner that way and less of any chance of something going wrong.
