    I have a 4s now and I am getting the 5 soon, is there a way to get all my apps and stuff from my 4s to my new 5 when I get it? The 4s is jailbroken if that makes a difference..Thanks for the help..

    Just back up your 4s on iTunes and when you get your new 5 connect to iTunes and do a restore and everything will be transferred to your new iPhone.

    Note that currently, there is no jailbreak for the iPhone 5. As for keeping jailbreak app settings, I don't know how it works.

    You can transfer your phone settings and apps by just backing up to iTunes and doing a restore from that backup on your iPhone 5.

    However, there is no way to transfer your jailbroken apps/settings/tweaks to the iPhone 5 since there currently is no jailbreak for it.

    Or back up to iCloud and restore from there

    I'd be tempted to say iTunes backup over iCloud mainly because I find iCloud more often than not gets about 50% into restore of apps (after main data as everything) then says it couldn't complete. Then you end up with loads of "waiting" icons you have to keep pressing and will eventually load

    iCloud backup and restore worked for me. Just make sure you're on wifi when you do it or apps over 50 MB won't load until you are in wifi.

    Everything you have ever downloaded will be on the cloud I normally set up as new and re download songs and apps. Gives me a chance to see what was really using and clean it up a bit.
