Then, if you lose or damage your iPhone, you can restore contacts and photos to a new iPhone by docking it in the SuperHero dock and selecting the “restore” button. Fully compatible with the iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G, as well as the iPod Touch (fourth generation). $54.99. http://iomega.com/superhero-iphone-backup
