I'm having problems backing up my wife's iPhone 4 to icloud. I've had it set to backup to icloud for a few months. A few weeks ago I hooked the phone to my computer to put some songs on it. I noticed the other day since I hooked it up to the computer it won't backup to icloud even though when connected to iTunes on my computer backup to icloud is selected and the same is selected on the phone. Any suggestions on getting this phone backing up to icloud would be greatly appreciated.

Is your iphone currently using more than 5GB (unless you purchased more icloud storage) ?

If not the backup to icloud feature will not work if you don't have enough space on icloud for your iphone backup?

Backing it up the computer is much faster and in my opinion easier.

It appears to be using around a gig of storage. I agree that backing up to the computer is easier, but I prefer plugging the phone in for the night and having it back up while we sleep. I'll double check the space required for a backup to make sure it doesn't exceed the limit.

Why do all of your posts say "Sent from my HTC Trophy using Board Express"? Do you really think anyone here cares?
