saves on upgrade my ipod touch 1g with iphone 3gs

Hi.
I'm upgrading to an iphone 3gs from an old ipod touch 1g. I played a lot of game with it and i won't lose my saves on upgrading. Is there any technic (no jb) to pass the apps saves from a device to another device?
thanks

Hey Matax. There's been at least one thread on this subject already -- I say that not to scold but as a head's up that there is more info in the forums on this. As far as I understand it (and in my experience) if you follow the standard upgrading procedure all your app saves should come through. I should note that I went from
a first gen iPhone to a 3gs; perhaps someone who's gone from iPod Touch to iPhone can chime in. This is how you do it:

1) sync and back up your iPod Touch. Make sure that you're not set up to manage the IPod manually. Disconnect.
2) plug in you new iPhone. Activate it.
3) when it restarts, it will ask you if you want to restore it from
back up or make it a new device. Choose restore from back up.
4) Once it is restored, resync it. All you music, videos and apps should reappear on the iPhone -- including saves.

Hope that helps.
