    It's usually best to start from fresh... but if you were pleased with everything on your iP4 and all was running well - restore from back-up. And if something goes flaky, you always have the option to go back and do a reset/restore and start fresh later.

    I restored mine from a 4S backup as well, no problems here either.

    Restore should work fine. For me, I took the purchase of the iP5 as an opportunity to start fresh with a clean setup... I only do that at most once a year because of Apple's upgrade/refresh cycle. I would have been restoring from a jailbroken iP4S so that was another factor for me...

    So for a notepad app or something like that when you start from scratch and then sync do you gain all your info. I have tons of pages of notes that I can't afford to lose!! I have it backed up through google drive but I still worry!
