    I had the same experience and I solved it as the following steps introduced by my friend.
    And I feel it is not that difficult to backup iPhone 3GS sms/contact to new iPhone 4
    Step 1: Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes and iOS.
    Step 2:Connect your current iPhone to iTunes and sync it. Verify that your original iPhone is backed up.
    Step 3:Connect your new iPhone 4 to iTunes (on the same computer you used to back up your current iPhone 3GS).
    Step 4:iTunes will ask you if you want to restore from a backup or set up your new iPhone as a new phone. When prompted, select the backup of your current iPhone. If iTunes does not prompt you to select a backup to restore when you connect your new iPhone, use iTunes to restore iOS on your new iPhone and try this step again. Note: During the process of restoring your old backup to a new iPhone, you may see the iTunes progress bar pause. If this occurs, please allow for additional time for the upgrade to complete.
    Step 5:After iTunes finishes restoring the backup you selected to your new iPhone, the iPhone will restart.
    Step 6:When your new iPhone appears again in the iTunes window, select it.
    Step 7:Click the tabs (Info, Music, Photos, and so on) and verify or change the items you want to sync.
    Step 8:Click Apply to sync your new iPhone 4 with iTunes.
    Step 9:Verify that your saved SMS messages are present on your new iPhone.

    It is not so difficult to backup iPhone 3gs to new iPhone 4. And you can see the steps below:
    1.Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes, which is currently iTunes 10.5. You can download the latest version of iTunes from this link. Please install it after you download it.
    2.Connect your current iPhone to iTunes and sync it. Verify that your original iPhone is backed up. For more information on how to do this, see iPhone about backups.
    3.Connect your new iPhone to iTunes (on the same computer you used to back up your current iPhone).
    4.iTunes will ask you if you want to restore from a backup or set up your new iPhone as a new phone.

    If you have back up your text messages, you can restore from the backup.
    To restore information from a backup, use one of the following methods after connecting your iOS device to the computer with which you normally sync:
    1. Right-click (or Control-click) the device and choose Restore from Backup
    2. If you have a new phone, you can connect to iTunes and it will prompt to restore from your backup

    If you have no backup for your data on iPhone, iPhone data recovery software is your last shot! It's easy to use. Just a few clicks you can get all your data back.

    Recently iCloud is a good choice to share data between i-device.

    Yep, I can confirm that simply restoring a recent backup of your 3G/3GS to your new iPhone 4 will hook you up.

    Just backup 3GS with iTunes. Make sure the same number sim card is in your iphone4, iTunes will recognize it's a continuation and copy everything back onto your iPhone 4.

    Thanks for the advice. Doesn't seem to difficult. Even for a dinosaur like me.
