Can you create backups of you iOS device on both iCloud and on your computer by Changing Storage Plan *or* does switching the Storage Plan wipe out the backup of the other method?
Thanks!

Changing that setting in iTunes will turn off the iCloud backup. If you want both just leave it on iCloud, then when connected to iTunes right click on the iOS device and select backup. This will give you the old style iTunes backup and iCloud at the same time.

Thanks much! I'll throw this in the MR guide I've been working on. :) Can you verify that simply selecting "backup" after right-clicking your phone's icon will perform the backup or must "synch" be selected on the main iTunes screen? I assume the latter is "no"... Thanks!

The right click backup is all you have to do.
