If you look in the iCloud backup settings on the phone it will show which apps and app data is getting backed up and how much space it will take. Most apps give you the option of backing up just settings or settings and data.If I back up my iphone 4s on the icloud it has about 14gb of data on it I would have to purchase the upgrade for storage but would this back up my entire photos contacts sms etc???
I recently restored when I went from a 4S to the new iPhone 5 and my texts were there, but I am using Messages. So I am not sure if they came in as part of the restore or only because they were stored on the Messages servers?yes but by backing it up on the cloud do i save my text messages as well?
