IPhone :: Restore My Information Backed Up To Icloud After I've Restored My Device With My Last Backup In Itunes?
Mar 16, 2012
I lost my phone and needed to get a replacement. When I did, I started the activation process, but never got prompted to restore from iCloud, just from my last backup in iTunes. I've run the restoration, and the backup was pretty out of date. Is there a way to restore the backup I'd set up in iCloud at this point?
I took my phone into apple today as it was broken, I was still under warrenty so knew i would be given a new handset so ensured i backed all my pictures and contacts on itunes. I have got home and spent all night trying to put everything back onto my new phone, but my pictures and contacts don't seem to be there. Instead it added all the pictures off my laptop and not from my previous handset I'm not bothered about my contacts but there are some pictures that i would be really upset to lose of my nephew.
My client accidentally deleted all of his iPhone 4S' Notes backups because he didn't want his iPhone 4S to be backing up to his Exchange account. He does not like the clouds. However, we thought it only deleted from ONLY Exchange account on iPhone 4S and not the whole device. Oops.Â
How can we restore his MacBook Pro's and its Time Machine's local backups ONLY for Notes and not everything else like Calendar. We just want Notes to be restored to his iPhone only. All software OSes are the latest versions (Mac OS X 10.8.5, iOS 7.1, iTunes v11.2.2, etc.).Â
Also, how do we view Notes in a MacBook Pro's Mac OS X?Â

I recently restored my iPhone4 on my Mac computer and I'm absolutely freaking out because my iTunes will not locate the correct backup (even when I left click on the iPhone icon in iTunes tool bar and select "Restore from Backup"). However, I can locate the file on my computer from the Library/ApplicationSupport/MobileSync/Backup. I've tried dragging it a bunch of different places/renaming the file to get it to show up in iTunes but nothing's working I saw that before I completed the most recent backup, it said the date before that was around mid-Jan 2012. The only backup file my iTunes can find is from 2010! My phone is not jail broken but if that's what it would take to get all of my data back.... I'm basically deserate.
Is there a way to restore my device to an old iCloud backup? Yesterday I had to restore my device with my iTunes backup and it was months old and I'm afraid that now my iCloud backup is overwritten. Is there a way to choose whick backup I want to restore and say, 2 days ago instead of the latest one?
Restoring from iCloud backup: I downloaded iTunes, synched my iPhone 4s, and don't see any email, contacts, calendar items, photos, videos, or text messages. The screen does say the last backup to iCloud was minutes ago, but I have no idea how to check iCloud to make sure all my stuff is there before I restore my iPhone. (I need to restore the iPhone because it's having problems and Apple told me to do that through iTunes.) Apple told me I'd see everything in iTunes and could copy the stuff over once the restore is complete, but I just don't see anything in iTunes.
I have created the Restore from backup...Â with Sony Bridge for Mac. All seems ok.
When i wanted to do Restore from backup... i was able to see my restore point.. i can select it.. restore process goes well .. all DONE. Â BUT NOTHING RESTORED... not a single photo.. contact... app... anything...
I have an iphone 4s and usually backup everything to my computer. i have sms messages from my first iphone that i have never deleted. i never delete sms messages nor will I ever.
With that being said, if I decide to use the iCloud instead of backing up to my computer (where I have done many full restores from backups and confirmed every single one of my sms messages are there).
The iCloud settings allow granular backupsMailContactsCalendarsRemindersBookmarksNotesPhoto StreamDocuments and Data
But it does not say anything about imessage or sms. Have any of you done a FULL restore from an icloud backup and confirm all of your sms messages and imessages come back from the restore (messages that were received before the first icloud backup)? I am talking sms and imessages from 2009 that I still have..
I have had to replace my iPhone 4S twice this week (long story). I made sure in both cases that I was backed up to iCloud before I replaced the phone. I triple checked to make sure the last back up date/time, backed up again and can see the backups when I login to iCloud online, but when I try to restore from back up it has told me BOTH times that no iCloud backup is available?
I have been trying to restore my iPhone 4S over iCloud since yesterday. Invariably, it will fail with the message that the iPhone is no longer connected to the internet. The wifi over which my iPhone is connected is also being used by four other computers that have no problems maintaining their connection with the internet. Currently, the estimated time remaining for the restore is 11 hours. It has come down from 52 hours. This over a broadband connection of 120Mb/sec down and 9 Mb/sec up. The size of the backup on iCloud from which I am trying to restore my iPhone is 8GB.
After my wife dropped my iPhone in the Indian ocean, I am awaiting a new handset from my insurers.The only backup I have on iCloud is one backed up from my iPad. This has all my contacts, settings ect.I do not have any iTunes backups as I changed machines and did fresh installs. Now, can I use the iCloud IPAD backup to restore my new iPhone?Ie - will my new iPhone detect the iPad backup and restore from this.
