Hi Guys.

My wife has an iPad mini 3G and I have the wifi version. I am want to swap devices so I have the 3G one.

If I do a back up to iTunes and then a restore on each device with the others back up, will we loose which level we are up to in games or will they go back to the start of each game. 

I trust this makes sense.

If I do it and loose anything of hers, I'm a dead man.

Thanks.

Should be fine, can't see it being any different to upgrading to different iPhones etc.

Yep I concur. Should be a matter of just restoring the opposite backup onto each device. There may be a little bit of tidying up of apps depending on how you have them synced but it shouldn't be too painful at all. That's one of the advantages of the 'locked' Apple eco-system.

I did a full backup and restore on my samung s3 recently via kies, and it wiped all the game data, and also didn't fully restore everything. But I think apple do a far better job with iOS. I have only restored my iphone once, and I recall everything restored fine, although I recall that icons were out of order.
