Transferring contacts from old iphone 3 to new iphone 4s via itunes

Hi Experts,

I have latest version of Itunes on Windows 7.

I backed up the old  iphone 3 OK.

I have now connected new iphone 4S - it shows up in iTunes.
Have automatically downloaded all purchased apps.

But I cannot figure out how to restore contacts from the backup of the old iphone 3.
I cannot see any sign of the old iphone 3 in iTunes at all.

Regards,
Leigh

Hey LeighWardle,

You have to Restore your new iphone 4S, and THEN restore your old iphone 3 backup to the new iphone 4S.  I think you skipped the restoring part.

Sorry, more info.  Connect your iphone 4S.  Click "Backup" Just incase! Then once complete, click "Restore"

Go through all the prompts, when it asks you what to restore from at the end you can either select iphone3 or iphone 4S.  You should restore using your Iphone 3 Backup.  Then you will have to re-download purchased APPS and Music.

I hope this helps.
