View Full Version : Backing up phone from a file??

31st July 2010, 12:51 PM
Hey guys,

I have a problem. Hopefully this makes sense.

I made a backup of my old 3G, and made a copy of this backup from the MobileSync folder (I still have this backup on my computer). However, I then proceeded with a restore of the 3G in order to give the phone to a family member. I didn't know that this would replace the old sync, but now I cannot sync my new iPhone 4, as it has no contacts, photos etc.

Can I restore from a backup file (that isn't recognised as a backup by iTunes) without jailbreaking my new phone?

Please help - thanks!
