    I'm wondering what you have found to be the fastest. I have a 64gb iP4S. there is about 28gb used up on it right now. I was having a software issue and reset the settings..... I was then prompted to restore the phone..... 4 hours later it was ready to go... That was just the settings via iCloud!!!:eek:

    If I had to restore the entire device, which I did when I got my iPhone that took 11 hrs.
    I realize that that is a lot of storage and I'm not expecting an hour or so to restore my device... But the current time frame seems a bit excessive to me....
    How long does Wifi Sync take or even usb sync vs iCloud?

    thanks
