    Hi

    I have installed iOS7 on several of my devices. I have until now used icloud as my way to recover the contact, messages.... But now i have made an iTunes backup on the computer. Will that work the same way, or will it say that it's from an older version, and therefor it cannot be backed up.?

    Why would it say it's an older version?

    I always use an iTunes backup, and I haven't had it fail yet. As long as you make the backup using iOS 7, and you restore using iOS 7, you should be fine. Be aware, though, that you can't restore an iOS 7 backup to a machine running iOS 6.

    No, there is no way, and I don't think that was even suggested in this thread..

    The OP was saying that he has always done restores of his data from iCloud. Now, he only has an iTunes backup and was wondering if that will restore all the same information.

    Oh wow sorry about that... I just reread the OP and I guess I read it as he had never made an iCloud backup and was really confused.. scratch that!:eek:
