I have an older ATT 3GS. I bought a new Vz iphone 4. I followed the steps to backup my iphone 3GS. With the iphone 3GS still plugged in, I checked the drop-down menu to make sure the backup was there. It was.

So I unplug the 3GS, and plug in the new iphone 4. When given the options to set up a new phone or restore from a backup, I choose to restore from a backup. But when I go to the drop-down menu to select my 3GS backup, it's not there! Now what?! I'm frustrated that I couldn't figure this out on my own. But I'm not having any luck so I'm hoping someone can help.

Thanks!
p.s. using macbook pro OS X version 10.6.7.
If you had the latest update to the 3Gs (4.3), then you can't use that to restore to the Verizon iPhone. It's only up to 4.2.6.

Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
