    Earlier in the month I had to restore my phone because it was constantly freezing. Before doing so I did a complete backup to my mac.

    After restoring, the iPhone asked if I wanted to restore from an old iPhone or create a new. I selected create new because I didn't want whatever was making it freeze to carry over.

    Does the backup normally include the camera roll? I need to recover some pictures that were on my camera roll & the folders I created. These pictures weren't part of photostream, they were just on camera roll by itself.

    Backup does include camera roll. Also, your Photo Stream is untouched regardless of the state you restore too (backed up or not).

    Does it matter if the backup was iPhone 5 and I'm using my old iPhone 4 to try and get those old pictures back? So far nothing is working...
