How to restore iPhone?

Replaced my screen twice and now my 8gb iPhone 3GS has a dim screen. I've plugged it into itunes and backed it up ready for a restore. Once I restore it and then upload the back up to it, how much of my old data will I have? Contacts? Whatsapp messages? Apps? Everything? Nothing? Thanks everyone.

If you recently backed up the device, everything that you backed up should be restored to the device. Just make sure that your backup was set to backup everything on the device (contacts, apps, messages, etc.)

For some more information on how to backup your phone and how to restore from that backup, check out this thread.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

iPhone restore will erase all your personal data and setting on iPhone. In terms of data and settings, it looks like a new one after restore. If you backed up iPhone before restore, you have chances to get the backed up data back. This is the article telling you what iTunes backs up for you when syncing.

There are various third-party iPhone Backup Extractors that should be able to pull the photos from the backup file, just FYI. Both Mac and Windows. Of course, since iTunes overwrote the backup file the OP wanted, doesn't really help in this case.

Or
