    Default [all] Is the iTunes restore from backup option safe to use?

    Is it safe to use the "Restore from backup" in itunes to get your iphone back to a working state?

    Specifically, say some mp3 or video file corrupted itself, or some calendar item or contact. Is the only way to fix your iphone to do a complete restore and unlock/jailbreak/activate all over again?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, unless you are using AT&T, O2 etc... without jailbreak, or unlock etc... then the best course of action is to setup your phone as a new onne every time you need to restore

    However, if you have done nothing to the phone, hack-wise, then a back-up image ought to get yu back in business (but then you wouldn't be here in the first place).

    So always set-up as a new phone, the only time i had problems, and in fact had to get the phone replaced was after restoring from an unlocked backup to a restore after unlocking.

    Hopefully that makes sense
