    do this...settings/general/reset/erase all content and settings (this is how i did it and fixed my battery problem). when phone loads up u will set up like when u first got it...log in to apple id/set up wifi/set up icloud and you should see your icloud backup available files.

    yes, i def did. i made sure i turned on wifi and backed up. it even said, last back up sucessful at 327pm

    in fact prior to all this, i did a back up at 12:30pm knowing that i was going to do this. i did it again at 330 just for safe measure

    This makes me scared to backup to iCloud. I'm sticking with iTunes for now.

    Thx moiselles. And trust me I am. I now have to enter in all my notes and put all my info into keeper again.
    My wp apps I can re dwld and replace them so that's really not a big deal. And I'll get my ringtones off of my iTunes when I hook up now. I'm not really worried about not having music on my iPhone right now either.

    I just need to get my necessities back. Notes and keeper info. I just hope through all this my battery does improve.

    iPinkk - before you started the process you did a backup to your computer, right?
    After which you did a restore as new, then you should have been able to restore your backup...

    Pink when you restored your phone at that point your phone should have a screen that say iPhone and you begin the setup there.

    You turn on location etc and then it will ask you to restore from iCloud. That when you check iCloud.

    Exactly. When I've restored ive always gotten this message. And no backup on iTunes. iCloud is in my opinion better and faster.

    No, Navi. i had a backed up from a couple of days ago, but i decided to just dothe restore it through the phone in setting/reset and then i prompted it to restore as a new iphone.

    I thought that when you restore it through your back up if there was anything previously 'corrupt' it isnt a good idea to throw that back up back onto the phone.

    A-Post, yes restored as new. the screen said iphone, i slide to unlock and began the set up. it turned on wifi and i had to sign in. then it asked me to log in to my itunes accoutn, which i did. then went into icloud, and still no restore option was avail. IDK what happened honestly, i know i backed up icloud TWICE today, once at 1230 and again at 330 before i did the reset from the phone itself.


    through the set up process, it never asked me to restore from icloud. idk why. also, it took a few minutes before it actually finally activated with VzW.

    Any way, i'm not upset like i was before, i'm just baffled as to why icloud didnt work right. the really strange thing about it is--it saved my contacts, photo stream(217 pix) and calendar. But i know i had the ON for apps etc.

    right now, i got all of my keeper info entered back in, i've synced back from itunes my 3 ringtones, music, few wps apps, BOA, and map quest. I have some of my wps on my laptop that i can email myself again. And i just need to enter in my 'notes' info again. So all is almost back to normal.

    I purchased 'tap-a-talk' today so i'm hoping when i go back into the app store from iphone, it'll recognize ive purchased it and it'll just re-dwld it.

    Once i get everything back right, i'm going to do a back up tomorrow so i have everything current again.

    idk, this message never came up for me

    i'm just gonna stick to the old fashion was and back up thru itunes from now on. I can't handle the stress of worrying about icloud backing up or if it didn't lol

    ok, so right now since i've restored and charged to full 100%, my stats are: usage: 40m/ standby 1h 12m and i'm at 94%.

    i hope that sounds good now. i've also changed my email to fetch only, every hour now. (push is only set for yahoo)
