How to Upgrade iPhone 3G


9 of 9

Complete Sync
iPhone 3G setup, step 8

After the restart, you’ll go through the standard iPhone/iPod syncing process in iTunes. It took me about 35 minutes to sync:

  • 1800 songs
  • 6.1 MB of photos
  • 4 ringtones
  • 3 podcasts

I then confirmed my other sync settings - contacts, calendar, etc. – and completed the sync.

And that was it. About an hour after I brought my new iPhone 3G home, I had it up and running with all the data, settings, and configurations of the model I’d just upgraded from. Couldn’t have been much easier!
