IPhone 4s :: Option To Turn On ICloud To Backup Device
Dec 1, 2014
My 4S will not give me the option to turn on icloud to back up my device.Â I went to settings: icloud: storage and back up: backup.Â The bae is not highlighted and I can not turn on Icloud backup.Â Is there any other ways to back up my phone so I can transfer data to new phone.Â iPhone 4S, iOS 8.1
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 I've run the restoration, and the backup was pretty out of date.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?
My newly purchased (yet going to be exchanged) 950 is glitchy at best; but I do not know why Settings îœ“ > System î£ª > Messaging, and turn on Text backup is not showing as an option on my phone. The software is up to date.I am swtiching back to the preferable windows 8.1 (Lumia 640) but I would like to have all the new texts that accumulated on the 950. How to backup new text messages. I have to return the 950 back to AT&T by Friday, Dec 18 to avoid paying for something I will never use. Not want to do a factory reset as I will lose what I am trying to maintain.
I have been backing up an iPhone 4 to iCloud for a while. I then purchased a new iPhone 4 as the old one was damaged, and set it up as a new phone. I haven't got around to setting up icloid backup yet. I now realise I want some data from an app in the old backup. Here is what I propose to do:
1. Backup new iPhone to iCloud
2. Restore new iPhone from old backup
3. Use the app's 'Email me my data feature' to get a copy of the DB
4. Restore new iPhone from new backup
Clearly I can only do this if during step 1 it doesn't overwrite the old backup. Can I have two separate backups?
My iphone asked if I wanted to update and I hit yes. It said to plug into ITunes so I did. My only option is to "restore". It didn't ask if I want to backup first.I don't have service on phone and I don't want to restore. How can I go back to "not" restoring?
My iPhone is saying it cannot be backed up because there is not enough iCloud storage. When I go to Manage my stroage, it says I have 4.9 GB available of 5.0 GB on iCloud. Is there a way to get this to work?
I upgraded my 3Gs phone to a 4 while away on a trip. I synced with Icloud and have been happily using it. Just plugged it into my computer and am not sure what option (set up as new Iphone or Restore from back up) I need to choose and why.
I have recieved a replacement iphone 4s under warranty. The problem is that when I tried to restore the phone using my icloud backup all it can find is my ipad backup. There is no evidence of the iphone backup I did earlier in the day before I got the new one. They both use the same apple id, of course. Does anyone have any idea how I can find my icloud backup(s)?
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?
I got an iPhone 4s in December and it was backing up to iCloud with no problems. Then in February, I got an error that there wasn't enough space for the next backup. I realised my daughter's iPod touch was using my iCloud account for backups also, so I deleted that, but still got the error. I deleted a bunch of photos, still not enough space. But I have quite a few photos, and figure I'll be taking more, so I purchased an additional 10GB of iCloud storage. It was saying I needed 7.5 GB for backup-- 7.2 GB for photos. But every time I try and backup, it fails. I no longer get the error about space, but it runs for a couple of hours, then I come back to an error message that the last backup failed. Additionally frustrating is that now it's saying it only needs 5.1GB of space-- so it looks like I probably could have just deleted some more photos and didn't need the additional 10GB.
Title pretty much says it. I have my backup preference set to iCloud, I lock and hard sync, yet periodically I get a message to the effect that "your device has not backed up to iCloud for ____(number of days)". I seem to be following protocol, but I must be doing something wrong. BTW, I've had some success forcing an iCloud backup by switching my prefence to the other option ( iTunes, IIRC) then switching back to iCloud backup, but, having used that approach only a few times, I'm not sure it would work consistently, and I shouldn't have to use that method, right?
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 need help with my iCloud backup.I recently replaced my iPhone 4 with a brand new one, and now it is saying I dont have enough storage and I am unable to backup using iCloud. The phone still says I have data space left, and I do not have any more or less space than my last phone.
i keep getting a random pop up that says I don't have enough room to back up to icloud. I find this strange since I have no music on my phone. I do have pictures and a few videos but probably nothing like what most teens have on their phones.I would like to back up some pictures and make sure I don't loose my contacts how can I do that?
