    how do I turn on Backup for my Iphone 5 on the icloud? My icloud storage of 5GB was full and i dont want to buy more. So i decided to clear all that was saved on icloud and I went to "manage storage" and selected my device and turned the back up off. Now i want to back up again because Ive deleted unnecessary things and there is no option for me to "turn back up on" under "manage storage" setting - please help, what must I do!!!?

    You may want to post this in either the iPhone forum or iCloud section. However let me help you. Go to Settings> iCloud and in the list of items to turn on/off below Passbook, you will see the option for Backup. This is assuming you are using iOS 8. So if you are in Manage Storage, you need to back out 2 screens to the main iCloud page. :)

    Thank you so much, that has actually worked. Ive posted on so many sites (including the apple forum) and yours has been the most useful and simple advice - and it worked. THANKS!
