    Anyone know of a way to restart a restore from iCloud after you have already performed the PC-less setup?

    It seems like you are forced to restore your phone. But if you backup to iTunes you can just right click on your phone and choose Restore from backup quite easily.

    If you go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content and Settings, it will wipe your phone and bring you back to the setup screen you'd see if you had just opened the box.

    I needed to bypass iCloud restoration during initial setup of my replacement iPhone5 as a software update was necessary for compatibility. Can you tell me how I may now restore my settings to the last iCloud backup from my previous i5?
