Restoring Mobile Safari Passwords to a New Iphone

Hello,

When I upgraded from iphone 4 to iphone 4s, mobile Safari seems to not have the saved passwords from iphone 4.  Is there anyway to restore those to my iphone 4s?  I am trying to avoid navigating to every site and retyping my password to get it to resave them.

Thanks!
Shawn

Did you fully backup the old phone before syncing to the new?

I thought so, as far as I could tell.  Everything else seemed to come across fine, apps, data, settings, just not passwords in safari and a couple of other apps passwords.  Is there a specific setting about passwords in the backup that I am missing?

No, but IIRC it should have transferred that information along with bookmarks.  If it didn't I suspect there is no way to get it back now.

The bookmarks came across just fine.  I am curious if anyone has had the passwords transfer over to a new phone.

Not sure if anyone else has ever gotten passwords to transfer over, but it seems like the problem also occurs when you get a new ipad also, it seems as if the passwords are wiped out everytime you get a new device.  There is an app called 1password that can save passwords to make it easier to re-enter them when getting a new device.
