    I had volume issues with my 64gb iPhone 4S so I reset all settings and after I did so, my phone told me to restore via iCloud. This wouldn't be a huge deal if I was around wifi all day. However, I'm an electrician and that's not a option....

    Seems like it would have been easier to just take my MacBook air to work and restore that way... Instead, I left my phone at home, went to work and 9 hrs lester, I got home and it still wasn't done!!!!!!:mad:

    I'm looking for a easier/faster way to restore all my stuff any help/suggestions? Thx

    USB (direct line) will always be faster and more reliable.

    USB like posts above said. Faster and more reliable.

    USB is fastest.

    The one time I did a restore via iCloud it took about 30 mins to complete, and I still had to go to my computer to get my media back.

    When I restore using my computer, it's much quicker.
