As a start go to the iTunes site and do the 'forgot my password' routine
- that way you can be sure you are entering the right password.


2nd, you can put your sim in the old iphone and from settings you copy
info re contacts to the sim.

Then re your apps you should be able to register your new phone to your
account and download all the apps for free if you are not able to sunc
them from itunes

Also, you can always ask itunes support for help, and of course Apple
