    Hi!

    I unfortunately have to have my phone replaced (randomly drops calls even while on full signal, Wifi issues and such) and I am about to go to the Genius Bar (getting drunk with genies yay!) so I backed up my phone to my computer using iTunes.
    My question is:
    Will I loose my screens layout when I restore my backup on my new device? (Like my folders and app locations on screen). Is it saved somewhere?

    Thanks =)

    Restoring the backup should make the replacement phone look and feel just like the old phone - all the way down to user settings, preferences, and screen layouts, etc.

    Your wallpaper should even be there.

    My layouts were screwed up and no folders but I managed to sort everything out.

    It shouldn't have been. Restoring from a backup should have made it exactly like it was before. Anyway, I'm glad you got everything sorted out, and thank you for the update...

    I even go as far as encrypting the backup so accounts and PWs are restored as well.
